Babelfish

Basically, it's a text translator that gives sometimes very loose translations of text.

My original sentence: I like to play the piano for my friends.[/b]

English to German: Ich mag das Klavier für meine Freunde spielen.

German to French: Je peux jouer le piano pour mes amis.

French to English: I can play the piano for my friends.

Here's where it starts to get fun.

English to Chinese: 我能弹钢琴为我的朋友。

Chinese to English: I can shoot the piano are my friend.

English to Korean: 나는 이다 나의 친구 피아노를 쏠 수 있다.

Korean to English: There is a possibility of shooting my friend piano where am I?

Into Chinese again: 有射击上午i 的我的朋友钢琴的可能性。

Back to English: Has the fire morning I my friend piano possibility.

We haven't been to Italy yet: Ha la mattina i del fuoco la mia possibilità del piano
dell'amico.

English again: The my possibilities of the plan of the friend have the morning of the fire.

And for the hell of it, we'll give Korean another go: 친구의 계획의 나의 가능성에는 불의 아침이 있다.

Welcome home: To my possibility of plan of the friend there is a sudden morning[/b]

Yes, Babelfish rocks!

I found it at work and had to force myself to stop playing with it because I was laughing too hard...
