Hi cc33, that third one, "We can hug on November, caress and nice oak," seems to be one of the hands down favorites.  Aren't these a treasure?  :)

I so, so, so love engrish.com.  It's practically athletic, how hard I laugh at that site.

This thread is always good for a laugh.  So bumping!  It had slipped a little too far down the page list.  For anyone who hasn't seen this thread before... even though it's long, it's really worth reading it from the beginning.  Classic.

Thank you so much for these, Sheyne.  They're still hilarious.

I love, "I got your queer case open" -- who in the world is writing these things?  Seriously?  I mean, I could understand if you made a few flubs every now and then... but to be in charge of this and to seemingly not know the language at all.  It's just comedic.

I second the person that said if I ever learn a language... I want it to be just as entertaining when I speak it as this.  :angel:
Otherwise, what's the point?

I always thought "creel case" was a bit odd. The thing is a creel - a basket with a slot in the top for just-caught fish, that's what a creel is. Or did he never take his creel out of its creel-case....?

I wonder if there's some audio version of Babel Fish they're using, or Dragon Dictate?That would explain it, a little.

But we should be charitable. I bet your Malaysian is a bit rusty, I know mine is.

One of these days I have to copy those subtitles and save them. Every time I read them I laugh so hard I almost have an accident. ...  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:
