  • Original spam content (in English) from something in my spam folder:

    "Stop wasting time flirting with the ladies, all you need is a huge pecker"

    Alright! Now...we go to Google Translate and see how it looks in Japanese:


    Hmmm...I can only read some of that, let me translate it back to English.

    "Stop wasting your time flirting with a woman, what you need is a giant woodpecker."

    ...not what I expected...perhaps if I take that translation and try Arabic?

    وقف تهدر وقتك يمزح مع امرأة، على ما تحتاج إليه هو نقار الخشب العملاقة.

    Nope. Can't read that. It needs a translation!...into Albanian!!! (The Albanians always seemed a very sensible people to me.) Then to Urdu, then Vietnamese, and German and Yiddish and Chinese (simplified)...throw in some Welsh...

    And back to English!

    "Wasting your time to stop flying with you to be a woman, this is a great leader."

    0_0 -wow. Now I know why people in Japan look at me so strangely when I try to talk with them through an App!
