In an episode, Amy introduces her parents (I think) and goes on to say something about where she originated from. She said something about being part of the "Kappa Kappa Wongs" but what does that mean? How does it relate to her parents?

And speaking of Greek letters, is Mars U's Robot House part of the Greek system? And if so, what letters represent their organization?

"Kappa Kappa Wong" came from "The Series Has Landed." 

Leela: Wait, Amy Wong, of the Mars Wongs?
Amy: Look, we're not as rich as everyone says we are.
L: Oh yeah?  What sorority do you belong to?
A: Kappa Kappa Wong

Amy's parent's weren't introduced until several episodes later.

The Greek letters for Robot House were Rho Rho Rho, I believe.

Greek for "R" is the symbol "P"
EURO in greek sounds exactly the same but is spelt EYPΩ - Epsilon Upsilon Rho Omega (although to be honest I'm not entily sure whether it's Ωmega or Omicron)

Please don't take this as patronising, it's not intended to be.

Greek and Russian have some really f*cked up alphabets.  wink

In that case, Epsilon Rho Rho spells ERR once translated into English, and not many robots are programme din Greek.

So... I'm right. End of story.

Anybody else wann' peice of me?

And then a hero rose out of the dust on the early morn down south of El Paso.  He came to face his opponent the totalnerduk, and only one man would be left standing by dusk.....

That man was the streetsweeper, who looked at the dead hero with disgust, and the drunken totalnerduk pretending to swim in the dust with scorn. Both were tossed out into the desert, where the cactuses grow wild and tall.

Mars Uni. was a great re-make of the classic movie "National Lampoon's Animal House", starring John Belushi, Stephen Furst (that Fat Space Ranger in Buzz Lightyear, Vir Cotto in Babylon 5).

Hmm, all good points but, here's an example for you of where Russki tries to confuse westerners.

Teral was absolutely correct with Vodka, I should have said.  smile

Basically I think the writers over-looked that some weird guy (me,  big grin or though I may not be the first) would point out mistakes they made with the greek language, either that or they didn't care. I think we don't need to worry about EPP anymore.  smile
ERR to me reminds me of that confused phrase "er....?" but they couldn't write ER because that would through up problems (not neccassarily legal ones) with that show. Plus do fraternities have to have three Greek letters in their names?

I don't know why but all the Communist posters I've seen have it down as СТАΛИН, with a seemingly Greek Lambda( Λ ) instead of the more usual Л.

Just the same as with Lenin - ΛEHИН

I don't know why they did that.
Technically you're right though.


Just one thing, speaking of Russian, Stalin was from Georgia.    tongue
