    And as far as I can tell, all the translations on page 2 are real. Good work!

    Aubrey Clayton can expect to hear from IKEA’s legal department. I hear they are very touchy when it comes to their instruction manuals or anything that looks like one.

    Look, the IKEA product names are not made up random strings: They are actual Swedish (sometimes Norwegian or Danish) words and places.

    So BAB is right out. May I suggest “Bäbis” (which means “baby”) instead?

    @#4, even the Ikea Legal department can’t change international copyright law, which explicitly allows for persiflage.

    Great Work, Aubrey Clayton!
