Dialectizer is cool ...

Works really well when you take an interview and patch just one side of the conversation ... for example, Clinton denying various aspects of his cigar episode to a journalist; except with all Clinton's replies in Jive

umm .. is that really Sweedish or is it a joke?

It sounds very close to English.

Try reading the following paragraph without looking at the English version .. see if you can possibly fail to understand the meaning:

A closer look at the URL tells all:

LOL!
It does seem to "translate" somewhat freely: typed in "swedish" instead
of "bork" in the url, here's an snippet:

"languages like Ruby an' Python, as enny fool kin plainly see"

I don't remember seeing that last bit on digitalmars.com... :)

It's amazing how Walter managed to time his joke with
our Swedish National Day, which happens on June 6th...
