The Broken Translator Game

And now... It's time for the Broken Translator Game. Do you all remember the broken telephone game from when we were kids? You know, the game you'd get like 8 kids sitting in the circle and the first kid would whisper a sentence like: "I love chocolate chip cookies!" to the next kid and the next kid would whisper it to the third one, the third to the fourth, etc and it would come out at the end sounding like: "Your mom has an overrated booty." ?

Well, this is kind of like that except you play alone...
Here's how it works:

Write a phrase in English (such as a line from your favorite Sir Mix Alot song):
I like big butts and I cannot lie, you other brothers can't deny...

Go go Babel Fish and Translate it from English to Spanish:
Tengo gusto de extremos grandes y no puedo mentir, otros hermanos no puedo negar……

Then go to Babel Fish again and Translate it from Spanish to French:
J'ai goût des grandes extrémités et ne peux pas mentir, autres frères je ne peux pas nier…

Then from French back to English:
J' have taste of the great ends and, other brothers I cannot lie cannot deny…


Hours of fun will follow (well maybe not, but if you're really REALLY tired, it's a little funny). Run it through more languages or different ones for different results.
:D
