The Babel Fish Game

I was very busy procrastinating today and started fooling around with Babel Fish. Someone had told me about a game where you input an English phrase and translate it to another language (say, French), then take the French result and translate it to a third language (in my case, German), then back into English. Sometimes the results are interesting.

In my case I input "Judy Thomas has blonde roots and sometimes has trouble thinking logically." It comes out "Judy Thomas has roots of blond and has sometimes the problem, which thinks logically."

All I have to say is I'm glad it's the problem that thinks... and not me. That gives me an excuse of some kind (even though my problem thinks logically.)
