A quiz question. Who is the person simply known to the world as “Mr. President”?
No, not the president of the United States. What is more, not even the leader of Hungary who in these moments is taking over the office of presidency of the European Union for the next six months.
For the solution, copy into the translator program of the world’s most popular site, Google, this phrase: Доброе утро Дмитрий Анатольевич! – Good morning, Dmitry Anatolyevich! Or simply click here. There you go.
But you can also try it with good day, good evening and good night, or even with just a comma put after the name Дмитрий Анатольевич. If You are called Dmitry Anatolyevich, the Google translator will automatically call You Mr. President.
But Google also knows the good manners in another respect. If you want to wish a good morning to Presidents Putin or Medvedev, the program will automatically insert the title “Mr.” before their names, unlike when you want to do the honor to some kind of Tolstoy or Dostoevsky.
And finally the popularity of Mr. President is clearly shown by the fact that his name was also recently used to advertise a much less known brand in the United States.
