My dad has been on "the Facebook" for a little over a year and it's been fun to watch him reconnect with friends and family here and in Hungary, but he was a little worried about leaving comments for his English-speaking friends...in English...so, of course, I tried to encourage him (because I am ALL about social media engagement, yo) by insisting that Bing translator would help them out.
Aaaaand, seeing some of the crazy stuff that Bing said, that he said, is yet ANOTHER reason why I do not, and should probably never be encouraged to, teach social media classes.
Then again, some of my Facebook friends seem to be having fun trying to make sense of the Hungarian to English translation, my favorite being: if there is no love there is no semi swaddling you.
Until, this particular conversation:
And I commented back: Nalunk is, Apu...sok ho.
Dad: By us snow, at least this is what they said.
Me: By us too, Dad...lots of snow.
Then, there's what Bing said:
Dad: We offer you, ho.
Me: We offer you, Dad...a lot of ho.
Right. Go home, Bing. You're drunk. And who you callin' a ho?!?
[sound of crickets, chirping]
So, yeah, I can't WAIT to see what Bing says, he says, next. Oh, and now I am also thinking about changing my blog's tagline to:
...6 people, living in a 7 room house, and a lot of ho.
Stupid English, dumbass Bing.
