This article showcases how badly things can get lost in translation with 35 gloriously funny Chinese-to-English translation fails. If you have a gloomy day just read through it again.

Those were hilarious! That just shows they translations don't always work.

You just gave me the biggest laugh I've in at least a week! :mrgreen: Those were magnificent.

It reminds me of old kung fu flicks. Be sure to watch the video to the 9:00 mark. Hearing the sublime utterance of "Basstrrdi'mmmgonnnaaaaburyyyyouuu!!!" will make your day, and change your life!

I just saw the video, and while it did make my day, it didn't change my life. You lied to me, Injn Joe!

It's okay. I was just joking. The whole "change your life" thing is what's known as hyperbole, exaggeration for comic effect.

I do tend to use that expression a bit too much. :lol:

Here's a peerless classic if there ever was one.

Thqt was hilarous! I particularly liked Bang Ding Ow. That sounds like the noise of getting hit in the arm with a bullet.

The Koreans got their revenge on that after the crash of that airplane in San Francisco. They named the pilot "Kent Parker Right".

As sweet as the revenge was, the Asian pilot's names were a lot funnier. I hadn't cracked up so hard in a long time.

That wasn't the only punny name they gave the people on the plane. For the others, we got classic names like "Co-Captain Wyatt Wooden Workman" a flight instructor called Heywood U. Flyemoore and a passenger called Macy Lawyers.
