The Dialectizer

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was just reading <a href="http://www.andrewsullivan.com/" target="_blank">Andrew Sullivan</a> a minute ago. He's discovered the joys of the <a href="http://rinkworks.com/dialect/" target="_blank">Dialectizer</a>. Just give them the url of a page you want translated and they'll render it in any one of the 8 dialects - Redneck, Jive, Cockney, Elmer Fudd, Swedish Chef, Moron, Pig Latin, or Hacker - you choose. As an example Sullivan translated a snippet of Anthony Lewis' final column into Elmer Fudd. I just had to see how the rest of the column would be rendered. So I surfed on over and punched in the url for the column and got this message: "Hi. I regret to inform you that the owner of (this page) has requested that this web site not be translated by The Dialectizer." That's just too funny.

<a href="http://rinkworks.com/dialect/dialectp.cgi?dialect=hckr&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.app le.com" target="_blank">Apple</a> has that too.

Off topic, but I also just noticed this banner:


I hate those...
