Fun with Engrish!

In lieu of making Jack Thompson the laughing stock of foot notery, I've decided to translate his reply from my last post into Engrish, just to see how the Japanese perceive what this man says. All I can say is the gaming mother land is probably both very confused, and very terrified...I know I would be, if a creepy, rickety old man with Albert Einstein hair and homely eyes started speaking in what sounds like German...I'd be evacuating Hiroshima.

"Permits me anyone gambling industry and, generally like olds of year of 1st, 12 from assossicated speech separated, is mainly. As for _ those compilation, and sale ones being careless, the あ. I jaw "21 year am old," it can worry Gamer and that culture less. That does not stop the fact that they are these sales of the product in the individual whose olds of year of 12 where type it moves enterprise is younger. Assossicated including the people like you, the fact that everyone it protects your enterprise which has the fact that it makes responsibility, you do not have to try."

I never expected Thompson to be the kind of person to "jaw 21 year olds". Boys will be boys...

To be quite frank, the engrish version uses more sophisticated language than the original english version. An anomoly indeed. Quite frieghtening.

Wow. I have to agree with you. The Engrish makes just about as much, if not more sense than the original.

And BTW, have you seen the E-mail where Jack's response was nothing but an insult towards the person's name? I'll see if I the topic about it is stil around...

Yeah, I've seen many responses. My favourite is the series of emails to and from Scott Ramsoomair at VGCats. I just can't believe Thompson believes half the crap he says.

Yeah, I saw the ones at VGCats(great site). Sometimes I think that the E-mail really belongs to a fiver-year old, because thats what the responses sound like.

Excellent article. Can we soon expect a Geist review where you once again own every single Nintendo fanboy on the planet?

In short, yes I will be purchasing Geist despite some luke warm reviews, and the review will follow later in the week most likely. Thanks for the comments, and no I don't use RSS. I don't know how to activate, nor will I care unless blogger gives me an easy tutorial on how to use it. Call me lazy, but I'm still learning HTML, I don't something like RSS clouding my fragile mind.
