Not about false friends, but this reminds me of when oil seed rape was first introduced into the UK as a cash crop.It harvesting requires slightly different techniques to that of other crops and a local farmer in the village where I lived had allowed the equipment manufacturers to hold an exhibition in his fields. For days, to the consternation of our female population, a huge sign pointed off the main road to our village proclaiming, "Rape Demonstration". I hope it attracted the right sort of people.
