Okay, I'm refreshing this thread, not for the original content of my post that created it, but because I think way more people need to go to Bill D's link above, which is a take on the old saw about a translating machine that takes "out of sight, out of mind" from English to some other language and back to English as "invisible idiot."

Except this one's real. It "Babelizes" text you enter from English to French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, with stops back into English along the way. So "out of sight, out mind" eventually becomes "of the Vista of the external alcohol for the part" instead.

Of course.
