Babelfish's Night Out

Babelfish's Night Out

This month, the OOW, in cooperation with suburbanunderground.org, introduces the Winter Babelfish Spectacular, in which we use the translation program Babelfish to translate phrases from English into other languages and then back again. For example:

English: That lipstick is a lovely shade of red!
Spanish: Ese lapiz labial es una cortina encantadora del rojo!
English: That labial pencil is a charming curtain of the red one!
Note: on occassion, we may translate phrases into German, because German is funny.

This month, we present Babelfish's Night Out, a collection of retranslated pick-up lines.
