01:39 pm - Fanfic snippet by way of BabelFish...
Gakked from lizamanynames:

Take a snippet of one of your fics, go to BabelFish and translate into another language, then back to English. Post the result, and see if anyone can guess which fic it was from.

Also, laugh.

This went from English to Pourtugese and back again.

The river likes its lições piloting better when herself has the bridge all of serenity. This means or is filled with earth or in the port, because the Evil says that it was still has much to learn, but the river it does not occupy. It can only see its professor real when to another one it is not there. "the first ruler to pilot is..." Its voice is its right. Tècnica, of the river cos-pilot still. The first ruler to pilot is love, the river thinks, but the laudering and the Evil had never agreed to that words if to use, uniform when they said on the accurate same a thing. "confidence," answers dutifully. A fraction turns its head, looking at with the veil of its hair. If to blink too much hardly, everything that it will see is congealed plastic the empty chair and dinosaurs in its March through the console. The right now, laudering is there.

*snickering helplessly*

That's pretty easy to guess, but it is funny.

*thinks of running an old LICC post through the linguistic wringer*

BTW, I don't know if you've ran across this little gem yet. A Portuguese-English phrasebook, published in 1855 by a man that spoke no English. He merely used a Portuguese-French dictionary and a French-English tome to compile what is considered one of the masterworks of fractured language.

Here's an article on it, with excerpts.

Oh god, the laundering and the evil. That's PRICELESS.
