HA! Hilarious! ;D

My favorite had to be the opening scrawl.

"Long time ago in faraway galaxy.... BACKSTROKE OF THE WEST!"

And they say that Lucas' dialogue is wooden.   ;D

Bahahaha this was just great stuff.

Let it be known from this day forth, that the 3rd Episode in the Star Wars Saga is Backstroke of the West! I demand that JD change all sections and threads to the more appropiate title! It's what George would want.  ;D

Now I have a new subnic...  :P

"You two careful, he is a big"

Sounds like dialogue out of a Gungan porno. ;D

Funny stuff.  There were a few sites about the Lord of the Rings trilogy that did the same thing.

It's just hilarious to see how things can be translated like that.

I still think of Gimli's line from TTT that they translated:

"Bring your ***** face to my ass."


Seriously, you can't write better comedy than that.

Anybody got a link to the LOTR translations?  If they're half as funny as "The Backstroke of the West", I have a feeling I'm going to be up all night laughing. :)

The Two Towers in engrish.

The Fellowship of the Ring in engrish.

I'll have to do some deeper digging for ROTK in engrish. I myself haven't seen that one yet.

And, for my favorite engrish caption ever...

No love for the engrish? Pity.  :(

I love engrish, I just didn't think it needed to be said, but now it has.
