Fun With Babelfish

For those that don't know Babelfish, I'll explain it.

Babelfish is an online translation website. It's normally used to help foreign people understand different languages, but it can obviously be used by anyone.

However, Babelfish can be used for comedic purposes. Allow me to show you an example. The following has been translated from English, to Japanese, and back to English.

The horsepower of lol covers Acupressure which is used by Drapion with the grass. The attack of Drapion rose clearly.
Chikorita used mud criticism. That extremeness is effective! Drapion lost healthy 11%. The accuracy of Drapion went down.


As you can see, very little of that makes sense. It translates to this.

xgina: lol hp grass
Drapion used Acupressure.
Drapion's attack was sharply raised.
Chikorita used Mud-Slap.
It's super effective!
Drapion lost 11% of its health.
Drapion's accuracy was lowered.


So, what is the point of this thread? Well, it's to post amusing things that have been translated. You'll need to go from English to the language of your choice, and back to English. (But make sure you state it like this: English --> Language --> English.)

Have fun.

Or is it the bagel?
...I'll try.

English:Mama Luigi and Chuck Norris equal one thing,and that would be utter mayhem involving bagels.
Portuguese: O mama Luigi e mandril Norris iguala uma coisa, e aquele seria mayhem total que envolve bagels.
Back to English:The Luigi breast and Norris mandril equal a thing, and that one would be mayhem total that involves bagels.

O.O Worth a few laughs.

Stalin is tightening its focus!
Sovereign switched in Weezing (lvl 100 Weezing ?).
Stalin used Focus Punch.
It's not very effective...
Weezing lost 49% of its health.
Stalin lost 10% of its health.
Weezing's Black Sludge restored a little health!
Weezing restored 6% of its health.

Translation
Stalin tightens the focus hard! As for sovereignty person Weezing (lvl 100 Weezing? ) With it converted. Stalin used the punch of the focus. Very is not that validity... Weezing lost healthy 49%. Stalin lost healthy 10%. The deposit whose Weezing is black a little did health as before! Weezing did healthy 6% as before.

Not bad.
