The Czech joke of the day is Queen Latifah at the Grand Hotel Pupp.

Roger Ebert says, "My wife and I were in Karlovy Vary four years ago for the film festival, and, like [Queen Latifah's character], we did a double-take when we discovered that the correct pronunciation of the hotel rhymes with 'poop.'"

Except it doesn't rhyme with poop, it is poop.

I met Roger Ebert on the visit to Karlovy Vary he describes. I liked him.
