In the last post, I commented on some English text that looked pretty puzzling. A comment on that post provides the likely answer ... it was probably an on-line translation, like babelfish. And yeah, I know there are now better services out there than babelfish, but you really want something that's not too good! And not all of the oddities in that particular text look like babelfish stuff.

But think big: I see real party game potential here — a modern form of the old game "telephone". Maybe we need to work out the rules for "Babelfish THIS" or whatever we call it.
