I'm sure if you've been around this Internet thing for the past little while you've checked out Google Translate. It's also possible that you've heard about the German Beat Boxing trick you can do with Google translate(click here if you haven't). It's pretty neat, basically you put in a series of consenents into Google translate and tell it to translate German to German, then listen to the results. Well I decided that I wanted to take this idea a step further. I entered part of the recipe for chicken soup and translated it from English to Swedish. To my disapointment it sounded nothing like the Swedish Chef.

Birdy stuff that hits my feet,
Boy I think it's really neat.
Doggy Doo makes me slip and slide,
It's hard not to fall, believe me I've tried.
Horse stuff is kinda green,
I saw a sheep make a brown jelly bean.

That's it for my poem about sh...

Allison and I decided that it was about time we visited one of our favorite stores in the world here in Greece. IKEA is a great place to buy furniture, eat hot dogs, and generally goof around, all for under 20 bucks.
This trip to IKEA was a little more special than any trip before. And it's not because of this ironic lampshade with... lampshades on it.
The reason this trip was so special was because my friend Alex decided to show us around the Greece IKEA. See my friend Alex is from Sweden and he knows his IKEA.
Alex spent the whole day teaching us how to properly pronounce the names of the different products. Did you know the "D'aim" chocolate cake/bar is actually pronounced "dime"?
We also got to see the differences between North American and European IKEAs. Here in Europe the books on the shelves are all in Swedish. Can you guess what "JAG" means?
Alex taught us about the famous Swedish Christmas goat who delivers cans of beans to all the local children and then eats the cans or something like that.
We also got to try a Swedish delicacy called meatballs and fries. Man this European culture is just crazy.

This is, what I assume to be, the "what to do in an emergency" sign in an elevator here in Athens. Sure it's kind of funny that I wouldn't really know what to do in such an emergency. However funnier still is the fact that they offer a fax number. I mean just in case you happen to have your fax machine in the elevator during an emergency.

Secondly I'd like to ask who in the world thought it was a good idea to use an elephant to advertise ice cube trays. I guess someone thought it was natural to assume that elephants enjoyed the cold.
