I guess it's a day late and a dollar short to bump this for Throwback Thursday, but this is still the best thread ever.

Whoever did these subtitles must have been doing them as the movie ran--like the people who do the "close captioning" for the TV news. Some of those news captions are as hilarious as these subtitles.

I wonder how Gary, Kyle, and Jim O'Neal are doing?  8)

I'm so upset the 'queer case' is gone!  LOL

But how is the mariconera?

'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

What a scream. 

This line just slayed me:


LINE: You pair deuces lookin for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in here pronto..
SUBTITLE: You pay look for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in your pronto


In where?

The 'something lost in the translation' works both ways.  One woman was wearing one of those cool t-shirts with Chinese characters on it, just to be pulled aside by her Asian friend and told that her t-shirt said "I f--k dragons"

I wouldn't mind having a t-shirt that said that.  ;D

Better than trying to get my no-longer-scrawny ass into my pronto.  :laugh:

In spite of the fact that I'm having some badly needed laughs over this thread, revisiting it is a little bittersweet, too, as I scroll down and see all the screen names of folks who don't come around any more; some of them haven't been back for years, now.  :-\

Shows you how bad my memory has become: I've said more or less the same thing at least three times now.

Whoever did these subtitles must have been doing them as the movie ran--like the people who do the "close captioning" for the TV news. Some of those news captions are as hilarious as these subtitles.

And I forgot all about Patsy, Grandall, Robin, and the Twist Family Plant.  :-\

OMG, this thread is so funny! Thanks for bumping it, Jeff!

I just re-read it, and I'm happy to report it's still a hoot!!  :laugh:

For those who don't want to reread the whole thread, I've compiled all the subtitles into one post below.

The comments in parenthesis are Sheyene's, the original poster.

But the whole thread is hilarious, I strongly recommend everyone to read it!
