Okay, this is bizzare:

mes jambes sont couvertes dans les cheveux virils, l'odeur est si douce qu'il me fait crier pour un poulet pour s'asseoir sur ma tête

And Bable fish gets:

my legs are covered in the virile hair, the odor is so soft that it makes me shout for a chicken to sit down on my head

Which is about as far as I got with my own translation. Anyone know what they're actually on about?

Oddly enough, cheveux is usually meant for the hair on ones head, poile for the hair on the rest of the body.

I think someone typed in something in Bablefish and translated it through 16 other languages to get what you got [Wink]

I'm not positive. but that sounds like German. I looked it up on Babelfish and got something that sounds very rude. The first word is definitely an NFBSK word.

Day 4.

I've been stranded on this island for four days now. I found this old bottle, and thought I'd send a message in hopes that someone will find it. I have plenty of fish and fruits to eat. Luckily I have the means to make a fire. The leaves on the trees work wonderfully for collecting rain water for drinking. I'm not seeking rescue. It's actually very peaceful here and beautiful. If anyone should find this message, please send the following items......

A toothbrush
Deodorant
Shampoo
Soap
And Johnny Depp.

If there isn't room in the boat for the above items, by all means, forget the toiletries.

Thank you.

Just what I needed, more proof that I am actually only 4 years old.

I haven't gotten any of mine back. This was the first really funny one. However, I keep getting a ton in Russian. So they could possibly be funny. I just throw them back.

So far, the Russian ones I've gotten have been NFBSK. I wonder if someone used Babelfish or somesuch to translate a few NFBSK phrases, then sent them out? I suppose they get their jollies from the idea that their profanity is getting passed on unbeknownst to the people doing the passing?

In the "News from the bottom of the ocean", is a message that says "We are in the process of upgrading our systems to handle the user traffic better and solve the wiggly cork problem*. Some users may experience outages in the next 24 hours. Please be patient as we work to solve this issue."

*This message replaced the one about what the 'wiggly cork problem' was: an indication of high network usage.
