X-Factor (IV) #240

Original languageEnglish
Aufpassen, Idioten Hauptling! (That is wrong, it should be: "Pass auf, Vollidiot!")Watch up, chief of idiots! ("Aufpassen" is the infinitive, but here the imperative must be used which is "Pass auf". While "chief" can be translated to "Häuptling" (mind the 'ä') that is only the boss of an Indian tribe. I do not know of a common expression in German meaning "chief of idiots" in any way of translation, so I used "Vollidiot" which means "downright idiot".)
