Nor do they always translate. And after years of lecturing in Seoul, I wouldn't try and be ironic with an audience there unless I knew them well. The same would hold true for a great many countries I've lectured in.

Obviously, when a Martian gave a funny talk to Venusians, it definitely didn't translate. Oh well, SNAFU galore.
