Oolon Colluphid Was Right is a Stargate Atlantis fic by Melannen.

In it, Teyla, Rodney, Ronon, and John are held in a prison where the only way to communicate is with sound, and the Stargates' translation effect means their captors will understand every word they say.

Rodney and John get around this by speaking in Earth cultural references, so the Stargate can translate the words, but not the meaning. This makes the fic also a love letter to being fannish or otherwise geeky.

Sophia_sol posted a translation in 2014.
