    Or as it is said
    So it goes in my head
    It goes in one ear
    And out the other eye

    Ignore me please do
    I am in a strange mood
    But I do not know where
    And nor do I care
    If you talk to a cat they look at you as if you are way below their intelligence to even listen.
    However, when you talk to a dog they look at you with such admiration and really do seem to understand what you are saying.
    Even if it is a bit silly...
    ...they still think you are wonderful.

    They're a sneaky lot, those non-English symbol users. Might as well be telling you that you look like a monkey's uncle and they could say "It means flower of the midnight light" >.>
    Obviously there are translation tools available but they're not always correct. I've used Google Translate before and gotten hilarious results.

    I started to reply earlier Jake with a bit in Shoshone and a supposed translation in English to test you, but decided it was not only unfair but inappropriate. I got the better of my impish side

    I doubt it's something you will ever run across, as there are likely less than ten thousand Shoshone left, and an even fewer number that have any knowledge of the language.

    [The Shoshone language is one of the Uto-Aztecan languages, more specifically in the Central Numic language family, of which there are varying dialects. Moreover, if you see it written you'e seeing a phonetic interpretation as it isn't a true written language.]

    Be well friend

    Ahh, but I'm too lazy to copy and paste.

    And though Lee will be remembered fondly, his untimely accident weighs heavy on our hearts.

    Sass me all you want, Lee. It's usually hard to offend me.

    You got hilarious results? When I translated a text from Croatian to English half of the text was still in the original language and half on English. Now that's funny.

    Joking aside, Cran is right, we should stick to our Gloria Sarah Titch.
