Eisely:

This is a tradition into which we have been instructed by the fearless Rapaire, Master of all Things Cloudy and Pretentious: if you have nothing to say of much merit, just run it through Google translations and say it anyway. It will make you look very knowledgeable and no-one bothers to translate it back.

For the benefit of Anglophiles and Hsitory my two posts read:

"Up a long ladder and down a short rope
Here's to King Billy, to hell wit' the Pope.
An' if that won't do, we'll cut him in two,
And send him to hell with yer red white and blue."

...which I believe is an Irish Protestant prayer of some kind.

THe other one was a simple sentiment:

"If I had the wings of a turtle-dove,
I would fly up the long nose of a librarian."
