Waste their presence in New York

Here's something fun (hat tip to Karin): Translation Party.

Here's what it gave me when I entered the first lines of "Homeward Bound":

But I'm really just a poor boy, I'm not talking a little about it. New York, has pledged the money to waste their presence in New York.

I am so in love with Translation Party. I go totally nuts over this particular variety of silliness. I'm glad you're enjoying it too!

(Translation Partied version of above comment: I love to party translators. Many of us I was completely stupid, and many concrete problems. Please enjoy, I'm happy for you!)

While playing Dungeons & Dragons, after making a particularly stupid move, I gave Translation Party a try.

I typed in:
Why do I always do poorly at this game?

And got:
Why would I do in this game is not always bad?
Why is not this game, you always bad?
Why, you bad What is this game?
Why, what's wrong with this game?
For some reason, this game is bad?
For some reason, this game is bad for you?
For some reason, this game is bad or you?
For some reason, this game is bad for you?
For some reason, this game is bad or you?
...
It is doubtful that this phrase will ever reach equilibrium.

Doesn't bode well for this adventure, does it? At least we all got a good laugh out of it! :-)
