I translated the opening lines to "road to nowhere" by the talking heads, which go as follows:

Well we know where we're going, but we don't know where we've been. and we know what we're knowing, but we can't say what we've seen. and we're not little children, and we know what we want. and the future is certain, give us time to work it out.

the result was:
But I know where we can get. But what I can not say we will do this. Our children know exactly what I wanted. Try in the future."

and because that wasn't that funny, I translated:
I have ADHD and am somewhat addicted to television.

and got:
And TV is not good.

-How can i get pregnant, bam!

Other versions of this:
I have a pregnancy, crepe find a way to stop it!
I have a pregnant, crack to find a way to stop it!
I crack it to find out how to stop, have a pregnancy!


Stg random:
-Follow me for i know the way!
Translator:
-Yes, i know.



Stalin:
-Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.

Translator:
-The choice of weapons training.


Stalin:
-If any foreign minister begins to defend to the death a "peace conference," you can be sure his government has already placed its orders for new battleships and airplanes.

Translator:
-Minister of State for establishing a peace conference in the death of the United States, new blood vessels and the weather starts to deteriorate.



Gandhi:
You must be the change you want to see in the world.
Translator:
-Iran is the key to change the world.

A river of dreams, the whales of the night,
Lead the way to peace, a restful sight.

Pope for peace in the middle of our goals.

But alas, the Sharks of Fear appear,
Inflicting the Whales with a painful sear,
Devouring the peace keepers with mighty jaw,
Drag me down to the nightmare's maw.

Abdominal pain, Sterilization, and Fish, Sharks, fear of demand for the dreams of Cardinal.

But hope should not be lost today,
For tomorrow the whales will again play,

However, peace talks in the future, I hope to meet the wave output of the allyed forces lost a series of games.

Here, I started with a long piece of text and challenged the translator to boil it down to one word. This will take more than 56 translations, so I'll post every 56th:
ORIGINAL TEXT wrote:"The Hanso Foundation is an organization founded by Alvar Hanso, whose aim was to "reach out to a better tomorrow" by researching ways to preserve human life and promote well-being. "
[quote="1st Translation"]"Karen hansen, arvoynhansen goal is to protect life and opportunities for Improving Health in the future of the Institution."[/quote]
[quote="2nd Translation"]Arvoinhansen kalunhansen opportunity and responsibility to improve living conditions in the future. "[/quote]

[quote="11th Translation"]May kalunhansen[/quote]
[quote="12th Translation"] If kalunhansen.[/quote]
13th Translation wrote:Please kalunhansen.
I didn't get to one word like I hoped, but I got stuck in two words, for a long time I would project. So, I declare the winning word "kalunhansen".

I put in "screw the rules, I make them."

I got... ah... " '[CENSORED]' the '[REDACTED]' ".

Let's try something else, then.

"To death, and the world's ending! Charge!"

became

"เสียชีวิตที่สิ้นสุดของโลก! Try it!"

Umm... one more time. "I think that my virtual peasants are plotting a virtual rebellion against my regime."

became

"I think the real revolution in energy production." That's more like it. :3
