    Veuillez employer l'anglais si vous le savez, parce que je ne fais pas confiance à ce programme de traduction.

    Can you understand these words? Then please speak like this instead. I have no idea what I just said in French.

    ....
    Mort means dead in French, by the way. If you read his profile, he says he's deceased and he lives in hell.

    What I always do is, once I've changed English into another language with a translation software (I use Babelfish.) then I copy what it says in the foreign language and re-translate in back into English, just to make sure it didn't come out funky.

    Let me explain.

    There's a standard textbook that's been used for generations, to teach French kids to speak English - I was on the receiving end of it once upon a time. It teaches by means of unfolding a gradual story about a family of English people and their exciting (sic) activities. In France, when English people speak cod French, bad French, or just don't bother trying to speak French at all, French people often "revert" to reciting phrases from this textbook. Among which are:

    Where is Brian?
    Brian is in the kitchen.
    Where is Jenny, the sister of the Brian? (sic again!)
    She is in the baththththroom. (obviously the 'th' takes a lotta practice and so is exaggerated)

    So... can you see where I was going now?

    I was kinda hoping Wandering would come in and answer "Brian is in the kitchen", to the amusement of both of us and the confusion of others.

    According to Babelfish
    AltaVista - Babel Fish Translation it says:

    Hello and it good of the good of the good of beautiful France. I am Mrs Belfry of Anjou. That-is the this dog with the door? It is impossible! You sleep please, has the Hercules Poirot and Rene Artois and Inspector Closeau. Heth-heth-heth-eth-eth. Scorchio! I will give you a hell of a poin



    And I think poin - in the Acadian tradition which is 400 year old French - is akin to a punch in the nose, but not positive.

    'Hello and the good and the good and the good of the beautiful France.

    I am Mrs. Belfry d'Anjou. What is the dog with the door? It's impossible! Please sleep at Hercule Poirot and Rene Artois and Inspector Closeau. Hahahahahaha! Scorchio (scorching hot weather).

    I'm going to give you a Hell of a punch.'

    Well, the content makes little to no sense, but it made me laugh.

    Oh man, someone's gotta do this...

    It was deliberately bad French by someone who is a fan of The Fast Show.

    Thank you for making more sense out of that than Babelfish did.
