    Original: Twas brillig and the slithy toves did gyre and gimbel in the wabe. All mimsy were the borogroves and the momeraths outgrabe.

    54 translations later: Dyablo hlivkye shorkin Misleading light. Momeraths gurobusumimuzu and all local Municipalities.

    EDIT: Strange, DE your listed location references phalic objects vigorously displayed at hockey games in Sweden for a good year or two, then I just randomly noticed in another thread completely unrelated to this one that you're now "gyring and gimbling in the wabe" right after I translate the first lines of Jabberwocky. What gave you the idea now all of a sudden? Even prior to that Grak apparently stole thoughts from Muro's crusted cranium by starting this thread mere hours after Muro passed on the opportunity. Did a truck full of Mentats tip over on the highway this morning?

    What Japes said. Our personalities are slowly but surely dissolving into one, and we are turning precognitive. I expect a lot of AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHH threads at December 31 2011.

    Actually, the last sentence functions just as well as a non-sequiteur.

    My name stays the same. Not much you can do with papa_dog_1999.
    However my title turns to "Little Mommy Dogs"
    at 10 and 25.
    Then to "Dog Mother" at 54.
    -----
    For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky.
    10:"For the world's hungry, I'm in heaven."
    25:"Starvation, was I in heaven."
    54:"I am as hungry, I was in heaven."
    -----
    That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die.
    10:"It does not die, this May will be permanent. Even the dead will not die weird."
    25:"Death is permanent. Even stranger is dead is dead."
    54:"Even Foreigners were killed dead forever."

    How delicious.

    In a Wonderland they lie, dreaming as the days go by, dreaming as the summers die.
    Max translations: Overseas Fatalities during the summer months in my day.

    From my sig: Being a robot is great, and all, but we don't have any emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.
    Max translations: Great job. But sometimes I feel blue.

    ...uh thanks. I'm sorry?
