That's about right, assuming "profound" is being used in the sense of "deep".

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I'm surprised no-one has done this before!

A random paragraph of our one-by-one story....

[quoteost_uid0]"Mmm, posioned blackberries," said George Bush, mangling the words because his mouth was attached to his left foot. His brain, though cannot synthesize anything resembling intelligence. This is because he's George Bush, which explains everything, including El Nino, crop circles, and John Sheridan's hairpiece that Kirk was lusting after. He auctioned off his toupee so he could pay Sheridan to give some tribbles a good clean shave.
"Shave and a man will lose one woman for a dozen,"said the wise guru of DOOM!, Tuvok.
"What the frell happened to logic?" asked Garibaldi sadly.
"Who is Garibaldi? He...was...my...dramateacherinhighschool. I...couldn't...act...like Chakotay,...only...like...Kirk...on...a...good...h air...day". What people don't understand is that Garibaldi use to be the very first of the last males ever to see a naked ant. Some people were shocked to hear anybody cared about naked ants.
"Naked Aunts?" John asked disbelievingly.
"Yes," said an ant, a naked ant carrying a passport from some sovereign Ant from the Planet called Antia Hill Prime. Anyways, Â the ant told a joke about it's aunt. It caused a riot because nobody thought a small joker could be funny since ants have a history of eating joke-tellers alive.
"Who cares about joke tellers?" asked Jackie Morden.
"I do care about joke tellers," said Jackie Mason. Everyone laughed. Afterwards, everyone wept. Jackie was confused. [/quoteost_uid0]

...put through the Babelwringer in German and back to English becomes...

[quoteost_uid0], George Bush said and zerfleischte "Mmm, posioned to brombeeren," the words, because its opening was attached to its left foot. Its brain, cannot not synthesize anything, which resembles intelligence. This is, because it is George Bush, which explains everything, including EL Nino, grain circles and [iost_uid0]John Sheridans hairpiece, which desired Kirk afterwards.[/iost_uid0] It auctioned away of its toupee, therefore could pay it Sheridan, in order to give somewhat tribbles, [iost_uid0]which clean a good shave.[/iost_uid0]
"shave and a man lose a woman for dozen,", said the intelligent [iost_uid0]Guru of the FATE![/iost_uid0], Tuvok.
"which happened that frell logic?" prayed Garibaldi sadly.
"who is Garibaldi? It... was... mine... dramateacherinhighschool. I... could not... Act... like Chakotay... only... how... Kirk... on... one... good... Hair... Day ". Which people do not understand, is that Garibaldi use to be the last men all all this at all, to see to a bright ant. Some people were frightened, in order to hear everyone, which was interested in bright ants.
"blank aunts?" John disbelievingly in demand.
",", said a ant, a bright ant, the one passport of for instance sovereigns carries ant of the planet, which was called Antia Hill highest perfection. Anyway the ant explained a joke over it is aunt. It caused a rebellion, because nobody thought that [iost_uid0]small fun bird could be merry[/iost_uid0], since ants have a [iost_uid0]history of the meal of the alive joke storytellers. [/iost_uid0]
"who is interested in joke storytellers?" prayed Jackie murders.
"I am interested in joke storytellers," said Jackie bricklayer. Everyone laughed. Afterwards everyone cried. Jackie was konfus.[/quoteost_uid0]

And you thought the original made no sense? The mangling abilities of Babelfish continue to amaze me daily. Beware my [bost_uid0]Baguette of the FATE![/bost_uid0][/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]From the recent "Earthshock" fiver:

[quoteost_uid0]Nyssa: Look! Dinosaur bones.
Doctor: Yep, they sure bought it big time.
Tegan: Hey, you're a Time Lord, you must know what happened.
Doctor: Actually, it's the other Doctors that pretend to know everything. I'm the neurotic one.
Nyssa: C'mon.
Doctor: Look, I gave you an encyclopedia for Christmas, so use it![/quoteost_uid0]
becomes, after being translated to Italian, then to French, and back to English,
[quoteost_uid0]Nyssa: Glance! Os of the dinosaur.
Medical: Yep, sure bought large time.
Tegan: Hey, you're a signore of time, you must know this qu'il arrived.
Medical: Really, it's the other doctors who pretend to know all. I'm that neurotic.
Nyssa: C'mon.
Medical: You observe, gave you un'enciclopedia for native, usilo![/quoteost_uid0]


[quoteost_uid0]Nyssa: See? There is a bomb behind the hatchway. And it's ticking.
Doctor: You are so going to get left behind on a leper colony someday.[/quoteost_uid0]
after taking the English --> Greek --> French --> English route becomes
[quoteost_uid0]Nyssa: Do you see? Exist a bomb behind hatchway. And it's notes.
Doctor: You should thus take on the left behind with a leprous colony someday.[/quoteost_uid0]


and finally,
[quoteost_uid0](The freighter and its doomed passenger smash into prehistoric Earth at Ludicrous Speed)[/quoteost_uid0]
becomes (after taking an English --> Dutch --> French --> English route)
[quoteost_uid0](the cargo liner and is the payment condemned in voorhistorische the ground to Ludicrous speed[/quoteost_uid0][/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Old T'Pol: Welcome. I think you'll find I haven't changed much from the person you know.
T'Pol: There is a "Beef: It's What's For Dinner" sign on your wall.
Old T'Pol: I've changed a little. In particular, I want to talk to you about Trip.
T'Pol: Oh, here it comes. The Trip trip.
Old T'Pol: Have you read any of the 940 Voyager fanfics in which Admiral Janeway urges Captain Janeway to admit her love for Chakotay before it's too late?
T'Pol: Only the ones Mr. Mayweather has written.
Old T'Pol: Then you know how this conversation goes. I won't bore you with the details.
T'Pol: How did you know I was bored?
Old T'Pol: I would have been bored too when I was your age.

And to French and back again:

Old man You Pol.: Welcome. I think that you will find me do not have chang?beaucoup of the person whom you know.
You Pol.: There is a "ox: It is what is sign for d?er "on your wall.
Old man You Pol.: I have chang? In particular, I want to speak to you about the voyage.
You Pol.: Ah, here it comes. The voyage of voyage.
Old man You Pol.: Did you read any of the fanfics 940 Voyager in which admiral Janeway invites captain Janeway?admettre his love for Chakotay before it is too late?
You Pol.: Only those Mr. Mayweather has?rit.
Old man You Pol.: Then you know this conversation will dispara?. I will not annoy you with the d?ails.
You Pol.: How did you know me?iez you?? tedious?
Old man You Pol.: I would be ennuy?trop when I?ais your?e.


(is it just me, or the translations on google getting wierder? )


Babelfish says:

Tucker: So. You an' me.
T'Pol: All it proves is that our future selves are insane.
Tucker: That's not true. I really care about you.
T'Pol: We simply had sexual relations. Your immaturity is appalling.
Tucker: ...Wait, I'm immature for wanting an emotional relationship, not just a physical one?
T'Pol: Precisely. A mature man would have left in the middle of the night and never returned my calls.


English to German and back again:

Tucker: So. It an' I.
T'Pol: Everything, which examines it, is that our future are even spirit ill.
Tucker: That's not applicable. I really interest me in they
T'Pol: We had simply sexual relations. Their Unreife frightens.
Tucker: ... Waiting period, I'm unreif for the desire of an emotional relationship, not a straight physical?
T'Pol: Exactly. A due man would have left my calls in the middle at the night and never returned.[/colorost_uid0]
