In 1977, President Carter decided to pay a diplomatic visit to then-communist Poland. Unfortunately his translator...
didn't do a very good job.
He translated Carter wanting to "get to know the Poles better" as "wanting to know them carnally" (I.E sleep with them), him wanting to "grasp and understand their hearts" as "wanting to grasp their private parts" and "I've left the
United States to come here" as "I've fled America, never to return."
Imagine being some Polish dude watching TV and the
American President shows up saying he's here to fuck and he's not leaving.
