This is a more open-ended game. Post the original text, then use Google Translate, Docs, or the Ackuna Bad Translator (search it up) to translate it back and forth between a random language and English. Then in the same post, post how many times it was translated, then post the final result. If you are using Ackuna, copy and paste the whole thing like below:

 

Here's one:

 

Original text:

"Bob likes to eat apple pie with whipped cream on top."

...43 translations later, Yandex gives us:

"Bob, for example, water, apples,ice cream."

 

Have fun!


John 3:16

 "God loved the world so much that He gave His uniquely-sired Son, with the result that anyone who believes in Him would never perish but have eternal life."

Now then, let's ruin the ever famous line from the Twilight Zone episode 'To Serve Man'.

 

Original text:

"Mr. Chambers! Don't get on that ship! The rest of the book, "To Serve Man", it's - it's a cookbook!"

...43 translations later, Yandex gives us:

"This is what happens! Local! System! Again and again, this book may be the personnel cookbooks!"

Here's a good one: It's the definition of dog:

 

Original text:

"a domesticated carnivorous mammal that typically has a long snout, an acute sense of smell, and a barking, howling, or whining voice. It is widely kept as a pet or for work or field sports."

...43 translations later, Yandex gives us:

"I remember the smell of the most powerful mammals, dogs, and, as a rule,animals, business, sports, accidental, or a scream from the house."


John 3:16

 "God loved the world so much that He gave His uniquely-sired Son, with the result that anyone who believes in Him would never perish but have eternal life."
