On a Differnet Note

Oh the joys of website translators... I found this juicy tidbit on a Spanish site - Los Secretos del Inmortal Nicolas Flamel about a book called The Magician.

This is drama:

"Californian Its. In the hands of Dr. John Dee and the Dark Elders, the book of Abraham the Mage could pisses the destruction of the world ace we know it. The most powerful book of all Time, it holds the secret to eternal life. To secret one dwells dangerous than any man should to ever hold. And Dee is two pages away from the knowledge that would bring the Dark Elders into ultimate to power. His only obstacle? Josh and Sophie Newman - who plows 8.000 thousands away. Its Paris. After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerges in Paris. The City of Lights. For Home Nicholas Flamel. Only this homecoming is anything but sweet. Perenell is still locked up back in Gannet and Paris is burning - with it, the last hopes for the human race. Nicollo Machiavelli, collector author immortal and celebrated art, is working for Dee. He's to after them, and Time is running out for Nicholas and Perenell.Every day spent without the book they age one to year - to their magic becomes to weaker and to their bodies, dwells frail. For Flamel the Prophesy is becoming dwells and dwells to clear. It's for Time elementary Sophie to learn the second magic. Fire Magic. And there's only one man who dog teach it to to her. Flamel's old student The Comte of Saint Germain - alchemist, magician, and rock to star. Josh and Sophie Newman plows the world's only hope. If they don't turn on each to other first."

Ok we laugh, that was funny. Somehow they translated mean as pisses!

But this is what it would read if it were really translated:

"Its California. In the hands of Dr. John Dee and the Dark Elders, the book of Abraham the Mage could mean the destruction of the world as we know it. The most powerful book of all time, it holds the secret to eternal life. A secret more dangerous than any one man should ever hold. And Dee is two pages away from the knowledge that would bring the Dark Elders into ultimate power. His only obstacle? Josh and Sophie Newman - who are 8,000 miles away. Its Paris. After fleeing Ojai, Nicholas, Sophie, Josh, and Scatty emerge in Paris. The City of Lights. Home for Nicholas Flamel. Only this homecoming is anything but sweet. Perenell is still locked up back in Alcatraz and Paris is burning - with it, the last hopes for the human race. Nicollo Machiavelli, immortal author and celebrated art collector, is working for Dee. He's after them, and time is running out for Nicholas and Perenell.Every day spent without the book they age one year - their magic becomes weaker and their bodies, more frail. For Flamel the Prophesy is becoming more and more clear. It's time for Sophie to learn the second elemental magic. Fire Magic. And there's only one man who can teach it to her.
Flamel's old student The Comte de Saint Germain - alchemist, magician, and rock star. Josh and Sophie Newman are the world's only hope. If they don't turn on each other first."

I think I actually laughed harder! Rock star? Machiavelli?

I want to read this book and I don't care if a computer translates it. I'm sure it will be equally funny either way.
