Engfrish

My friend Vicki at work got me wise to the amusing activity of creating Engfrish by translating text in babel fish from English to Japanese and then back again. Here is a portion of our national anthem Enfrishized:

Order we that the O Canadian
Our all our house and the national
True holy love incandescence center force
And rise true north,
We can stand to supervision because of you,
You release from far, wide
O Canada you observe at that

And the Star Trek : TOS intro:

Space, final frontier.
These are travelling of Starship Enterprise.
The five age chart groups, being strange,
in order to explore the new world,
as for the person going before boldly and without being
in order to find new life and new civilization
in order to go to the place.

The Star Trek: TNG intro is slightly different:

Space, final frontier.
These are travelling of Starship Enterprise.
The continuous delegation, being strange,
in order to explore the new world,
in order to find new life and new civilization
because a certain thing where everyone does before
boldly goes to the place

Our national anthem sounds like a Haiku written about one of my fouler smelling farts. Believe me, thats one force you want released from afar as possible!

Filtering Out MSN's Filter
MSN Filter sure is getting some people upset . Personally I wanted to give MSN Filter a few weeks before giving my opinion, but Ross goaded me into it.
Thanks for hosting this blog. I think this is as important an innovation as the Gutenberg Press!

That's hilarious. I used to do that all of the time with email messages and send them back out. I never laughed so hard, well, except when I play Balderdash.
