BABELFISH CONTEST #2
This is a contest to see who can get the most hillarious results from translating one phrase through Babelfish. You can translate as many times as you want and you can use whatever translation settings you want, but you cannot edit the output whatsoever at any point.

You don't have to post the output of Babelfish after every translation, but you do need to post the list of translations used in addition to your final result.

The phrase for this contest is:

"This novel is not to be tossed lightly aside, but to be hurled with great force."

(A quote from Dorothy Parker.)

"This novel is not to be tossed lightly aside, but to be hurled with great force."

English -> Italian -> French -> Dutch -> English -> Korean -> English -> Chinese Trad. -> English -> Chinese Simp. -> English -> Japanese -> English -> Spanish -> French -> English -> Korean -> English -> Japanese -> English

"You respect that, you do not retreat the novel because there is firing which is hard. In order to dry, you spread, but strong power, intelligence so supplements."

(Divided it into two sentences myself, because otherwise it wasn't as funny)

Also:

"Neighbor this novel not slightly diligently is thrown in the symbol by the tremendous strength, but throws."

Is the stable Traditional Chinese translation. It makes no sense.

EDIT: Hey, Shard! If you copy the question marks (or whatever your computer reads it as), it'll still do the translation. Worked for me, anyway.

This new side is little, but compilation inside or you do not throw the effort which is thrown by the power which is that enormous.

Traditional Chinese, Korean and Japanese in that order (back each time).

It doesn't give me question marks. It eliminates all the words and leaves the punctuation. I'm sure that " , ." would translate to something very similar in English.

This novel does not certainly go to be launched slightly on the part, but for eksfendonjstej ' with the great force.

Just for the heck of it...

(english to chinese-trad to english to chinese-simp to english to spanish to french to german to english to japanese to english to italian to french to dutch to english to...)
This novel becomes the side, not in the implementation of the champion an attack commits easily of enormous capacitance introduced.

(...to greek to french to german to french to spanish to english to...)
This novel does not become the aspect to the application of the pioneer who an attack of the enormous capacity that is introduced begins easily.

(...to dutch to french to english to korean to english)
This novel the start which it introduces to be easy in attack of the accommodating quantity which is enormous is not the aspect in application of the frontier.

The this novel certainly will not be launched slightly by part, but for eksfendonjstej' with the great force.

-> German -> English -> Korean -> English

This novel by a portion, in but strong force the eksfendonjstej hazard it is positive and as the silent guy ' it does not output

-> Greek -> English -> French -> Italian -> English

This novel of a part, but a powerful force eksfendonjstej of the danger the this is positive and from the calm pressure "that no production"

-> Russian -> English -> Portuguese -> French -> English

This novel of the part, but the vliyatel' nya of eksfendonjstej of the force of the danger this is positive calm pressure "that the absence of the production"

I do wonder what the vliyatel' nya of the eksfendonjstej is, and what is has to do with positive calm pressure.
I'll have to do this again.

I tried translating my original PDN (Infernal Flamming Muffin) to Dutch and I go an error report. And I did that with Chinese-trad and got 地獄Flamming 鬆餅. This time I will remove the excess "m". And Chinese-trad and back makes it Hell flaming muffin.

And interestingly enough, Korean and back makes it "Hell other it rises, me the pin".

"This novel is not to be tossed lightly aside, but to be hurled with great force."

English -> Korean -> English -> Korean -> English -> French -> Portuguese -> French -> German -> English

This novel puts side and the money it jorros and launches slightly and left him, but information of force of thing of company of interior.

-> Korean -> English -> Japanese -> English -> Chinese (simp) -> English

This is the information and inside the money makes jorros to be possible, nearly does not have the release this novel and side left side, to nearly does not have company's matter strength.

-> Greek -> French -> German -> French -> Italian -> English

These are the information, and in the earned money jorros, so that they are possible, nearly presquen ' nearly the liberation to this new one, and the secondary aspect the left does not have the force of topic of the enterprise.'

-> Korean -> English -> Japanese -> English -> Korean -> English -> My final submission:

Information where his depiction is possible this regarding the person item order, with inside emitting the new thing, it is quickly inside the jorros of the money of punishment n and in flag secondary aspect ' the left force intelligence ' last is presquen because of topic of the enterprise which is not.

I'd be interested in the reverse challenge: People post utterly bizarre "translations" and perhaps a hint of the original statement's origin, and challenge others to decode...
