My Blackberry isn't working!

Click here to see the video on youtube (subtitles available): BBC short video by The One Ronnie

Here you have a website with the puns and double meanings explained in Spanish:

Exercise 1. Write the explanation for at least one pun that Eduardo couldn't. If you can't find one, can you at least explain at least one better than he did?

Exercise 2. Write at least a new line for this dialogue. Try to imagine other puns or jokes that could go down in the same conversation. For example, when the Apple was 'rebooted', he could have added that it crashed because Apple isn't compatible with Windows.

Machine translators are too literal

We all know many of you use machine translators for writing assignments, but machines translate literally and don't take the context into account. You usually trust them too much and don't revise the resulting translation, which often is rather hilarious for your teachers (well, when they manage to understand what you meant, that is.)

Here you have a funny example of a literal translator:


Can you think of other funny literal translations? Come on, contribute with your comments!
We will enjoy like midgets! (=nos lo pasaremos como enanos)
