Fun toy.

I put in the Warren Zevon lyric:

The say love conquers all. You can't start it like a car. You can't stop it with a gun.

Got back:

an online comic strip i was reading recently has an odd character who speaks spanish gibberish. the author takes what he wants the character to say in english, puts in in babelfish and translates it to spanish, back to english, and then back to spanish again to make sure it is garbled up.
