Only one more day and this election season will be over.  Well, the voting will be.  Pundits think some close and hotly contested races won't actually be settled until early next year.  At least the ads will be gone.

I thought this Buzz Feed piece was amusing.  Target is selling Orina sandals and now trying to rename them because "orina" is Spanish for "urine."  It reminds me of the Chevrolet campaign to sell its Nova in Latin America which fizzled badly.  Nobody realized that "nova" in Spanish translates to "don't go."  No one wants a car that doesn't go.
