comment What does 馬鹿も一芸 mean in English?
@OskarLindberg When you say "a few dictionaries", do you mean online English-Japanese dictionaries or paper dictionaries? Many online dictionaries use the WWWJDIC database. It wouldn't be the first time that I saw a WWWJDIC entry for an expression/idiom with a questionable translation.
