    Fools rush in

    Bill purchased a Babelfish. It goes in the ear, and attaches to the brain.
    The problem is, it mangles the translation.
    So while he thinks he is saying, oh something like:
    Bill: I would like to dance with you. (Chciałbym tańczyć z tobą.)
    It actually says, "I want to wear your pants, it's true."

    Bill, babelfish

    Yes. Truth. Slang especially, does not translate well at all. This has inspired an entire new line of comic strips.

    And understanding of many other things.

    It is a truth, translators online are doing (unfortunately) mistakes
    and it is sometimes necessary to think how it should be really.
    The bad translation is sometimes a reason of misunderstandings.
