Not my find, but—the entire country of Sweden woke up to the app being in “swedish chef english.” Turned out that loc used this script to test that the strings were localizable, and it had accidentally overwritten the Swedish translation.

Does this mean it’s okay to talk to our Swedish neighbors like that?

The swedes weren't amused at all, I wouldn't recommend it.
