Google likes The Simpsons

Bloggerで運営されていたOfficial Google Blogが消えたと昨日騒ぎになったが、復活! 真相はトラブル対応中に「自ら間違って消してしまった」。ここでも、シンプソンズの「d'oh!」が(笑)
Official Google Blog:
Update: We've determined the cause of tonight's outage. The blog was mistakenly deleted by us (d'oh!) which allowed the blog address to be temporarily claimed by another user. This was not a hack, and nobody guessed our password. Our bad.

本当にアメリカ人はシンプソンズが大好きなみたい。「do'h」はWebster's Millennium Dictionary of EnglishOxford English Dictionaryに掲載されているらしい。説明は
expressing frustration at the realization that things have turned out badly or not as planned, or that one has just said or done something foolish. Also (usu. mildly derogatory), implying that another person has said or done something foolish (cf. DUH int.)

D'oh! - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
On a family trip to Japan, Homer said something in Japanese along the lines of 'shimatta-baka-ni,' which was translated in subtitles as 'D'oh!' 'Shimatta' in Japanese is roughly equivalent to 'damn it!', whereas 'baka' is used to describe an idiotic or foolish person or thing.

これによれば「d'oh = damm it! + idiotic」なので「しまったバカに」となるらしく、ファミリーが来日した際にHomerがそう言っているらしい。その放映回観てみたいなあ。

あと、シンプソン絡みで言えば、YouTubeでも「Real Life Simpsons」の人気が3月頭からずっと衰えず(見た人多いと思うけど)。
