Keep it PG please.
===*===

English: Bite me.

To Spanish and back: Bite me.

Then to French and back: F!k me. [well that figures]

Then to German and back: Bite me.

Thence to Italian and back: Bite me.

And lastly to Portuguese and back: Bite me.

Looks perfectly fine to me. WOOT!

(The Jester Board FAQ:)
Welcome to The Jester Board, a nook of original humor at The Motley Fool. Bluntly, it's a place to write funny stuff and for stuff that can't fit elsewhere on TMF because it's humorous and/or lyrical.

This isn't a board for jokes you got on the Internet. If you want post jokes, go to Humor and Urban Legends. Tell them I sent you. They're nice people over there yet we do something different.

It's a place for writing funny and/or funny writing. The subject matter is your choice and that's about as specific as I can get other than occasionally I or someone else will toss out a challenge such as write TMF's posting policy Elizabethan style or in the manner of instructions for assembly by an Asian bicycle maker. Or Brittney Spears as a reporter on life in Afghanistan. That sort of thing.

Posters having an idea for a challenge are asked to number their initial challenge consecutively to the one preceding it to separate one subject from another. That way we can also use the threaded function if a reader wishes.

Of the three pillars of TMF: Educate, Enrich, and Amuse, this board centers on the last yet also remembers there's many a true word said in jest.

Well, that's about it other than mentioning that I'd like you if you find someone who writes funny to let them know there's The Jester Board.


After all the translations:
Welcomely with the advice the bird of the diversion, a stupid idiot socle too much of the fine-colorful one originates it of the tendency. It is the unexpected place to write to the contented substance and for the substance that not in TMF another one where you adapt you you same the tin, with because she is full lírica tendency and/or. The cover for the jokes is not one, of which they have receipts in the Internet. If the jokes of the tree of the wished activator of the exit, are the tendency and the legend of the city. It says them that it would transmit them. They are pleasant people, here nevertheless, to that we do something of different. It is for a place the contented letter and/or content of the letter. The subjects are as their option and are approximately specific, like the tin to apanhar another one, of that 0ccasionally or qualcun another one of an outer exemplary challenge of élisabéthain or the direction of the instructions for the meeting writes with the policy of the policy in TMF for the startings of an Asian of the jet of the bicycle. Or the creature of livings of entrerroscas of Brittney has taste of him journalist in the Afeganistão. This type of the thing. The manifesto, that one has an idea for a challenge, is invites later to the end that separates to him the end to him to number its challenge of the escape with, of which it precedes it, in the order the subject of the other. In this type we can also use the moved function, if a reader to wish. Of the three trees of the activator of the exit of TMF: If he is informed, you enrich e, of ways of this advice to extremity nevertheless who you do fullfilled that him is laughed that you are repeated service here on the other hand the word the very applicable one, that one you are saying, in the order. Good it is in her, different that, to indicate to this he would appreciate them, if is assembled somebody, that the allegro to the left of them gives the knowledge is the advice here who the bird of the diversion writes.


Duck!

Jaysus Murphy, Duck. Where were you when I wrote my business plan? That's good stuff, man. You sure you never wrote insurance policies? Obfustication, Duck's your man. Ever thought of writing for assembly of stuff from Ikea? Whatever you'd do you'd be streets ahead of how to assemble Kransk and avenues ahead of how to put together Blurkl. To say nothing of Grapm.

I am amazed by your writing and all I can say is that you should be in politics.

Your unabashed fan,

MichaelR
