OT: Something Got Lost In The Translation

This is from another UseNet modeling group, and a thread which had severely degenerated into random thoughts...
Here's a fun quote, from a Chinese spammer:
"Newest moving is stored , the price is low , capacity is large , can be according to the needs of yours the wanton size of adjustment capacity. This kind of equipment is to move a hard disk of boxes. Moving the box appearance of the hard disk exquisitly, succeed through alloy material, anti-vibration is designed , to dispel the heat is good, little volume, easy to hold under the arm and bring and to install is convenient, Namely insert and use USB interface promptly, price is."
This next one is from the instruction sheet which came with a string of Christmas lights:
"You will plug and invert. Sparking is badness."
Then there's these classic gems from the 1962 Honda Cub Instruction Manual:
"1. At the rise of the hand by Policeman, stop rapidly. Do not pass him by or otherwise disrespect him.
2. When a passenger of the foot, hooves in sight, tootle the horn trumpet melodiously at first. If he still obstacles your passage, tootle him with vigor and express by word of mouth, warning Hi, Hi.
3. Beware of the wandering horse that he shall not take fright as you pass him. Do not explode the exhaust box at him. Go soothingly by.
4. Give big space to the festive dog that makes sport in roadway. Avoid entanglement of dog with wheel spokes.
5. Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon. Press the brake foot as you roll around the corners, and save the collapse and tie up."
This is one of my favorite quotes:
"Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills a woman, and then teams up with three strangers to kill again." - TV listing for THE WIZARD OF OZ in the Marin, Ca. newspaper
