Online translators don't work

I've just entered my previous post into Babel Fish and BOY is it funny! It's actually funnier than the original one I wrote and it really, really lost it's way near the end, where it's come up with stuff that has almost nothing to do with the original words.

Obviously, automated translators can't cope with slang and are hilarious when translating metaphors literally... so if you're a translator I can definitely say that your job is safe, at least for a few more decades.
