Apparently, Leonard didn't like to concede the word "comrades" to the communists, so he thought he'd "take Berlin" ... y'know, being the frontline city of the Cold War an' all.

Still, I remember thinking at the time that maybe a more promising approach to undermining Communist cities would be to simply change the 's' in Moscow to an 'o'. After all, as a placename for a Cold War capital, I felt confident that Moocow just wouldn't carry the same er, gravitas.

But do you think I could get anyone to consider my proposal ...?

Well, of course not.

I shouldn't imagine you'd have any more luck with the name Moocow in China...
