This one's a hoot. I just got a 419 written entirely in French from the Ivory Coast. Fortunately, I speak French fluently so I could read it. It's even written in grammatically correct French with all the proper accents and plurals, unlike the usual hilarious "all your base are belong to us" English letters we see.

Here's the joke: the lad is claiming to be the only daughter of his dear departed parents. But he forgot to switch the adjectives refering to himself to the feminine form. ("petit" for "little" instead of "petite"). No real girl would ever make a blunder like that.

Mr. Bone almost feels like taking him/her on.

What was that song by Julie Brown? "I like 'em big and stupid!"

Almost?

Take him on! When the proper french changes into machine translated lad english, you know he's off script.

It might not change. French is the official language of Côte d'Ivoire, and used in schools and in business - unlike English, which is taught as a foreign language.

Yes, this is definitely not a machine translation of anything. It's clearly someone with a decent education. But now that I think of it, I'll take a pass on him. I mean half the fun is sharing the results here, but if I have to translate everything back into English - too much bother.

Still - it might be interesting to match wits with someone who isn't completely unarmed for a change. What to do Twisted Evil

Hmm, maybe Mr. Bone could be a rich playboy vacationing in Monte Carlo visiting his good friends the Baron and Baroness de Beaujolais to sample the 2009 vintage. He's looking for some company to bring him luck at the chemin de fer table. Perhaps he could send his private Gulfstream down to the Ivory Coast to pick her up. After all, she's got $5.5M in a suitcase that she needs to dispose of fast Smile

From my basic knowledge of French the language puts more emphasis on Male and Female nouns. So it's doubly funny. We have already come accross exactly the same in English, changing the masculine to feminine but not in the rest of the script.

What would be funny is use Babelfish to translate back and forth to the non-english scammers. That program screws up languages so much.

That's not a bad idea. Only don't even bother doing the initial translation of their message into English. Just type something like, "I do not speak your language so I translated your message automatically. I understand you are saying that you are a psychopathic sexual pervert who enjoys wearing dresses (or whatever). You want me to help you stop the voices in your head (etc. etc.)"

Then translate that into his language and send it to him Twisted Evil

I'd do it myself but I'm still waiting for my free Kia and 200 kg. of gold bars. And I just applied for a job at the Day's Inn in Canada (don't know which one yet Smile

Frank Zappa, I believe, is dead but his kids, Dweezil and Moon Unit are still with us. Frank was a one of a kind.[/hijack]

Great idea. First though, I need to find out what color this Kia is, and exactly what options it comes with. Then I'll need the EPA mileage (no, I can't look it up myself). Next, I'll be moving to Califonia so I'll need to know if it is CARB certified.

Regardless, I'll talk it over with my pals at work who tell me that in my country only girly-men drive Kias and if I show up in one they will laugh themselves silly. However my best friend Joe Kerr tells me that I should ask for a German luxury car, specifically a Trabant. Now I've never heard of this brand but I know the Germans build some great cars, and he assures me that this one is astonishing (you betcha).

Hmm, I wonder if my lad can supply me with a Trabant. Twisted Evil
