Englishman in Yandex Traps

I use to read English blogs, those who succor themselves with Yandex or Google translators too. But what I saw today pushed me into white despair! Being not Russian but being able to read Russian texts and having inquisitive nature I check every Yandex translation. Such stupidity, not funny, I’ve never seen yet. See for yourself.

seasons greetings from the land of … well …

Correct forms:

Ребят, как праздничное настроение? = Guys, how’s your festive mood?

Хорошо. Слепили грязевика с друзьями = Good. I’ve sculpted dirtman with friends.

Description:
Слепили – past time of с-лепить (sculpt, carve, shaping)

гряз – dirt
снего-вик (without -) = snow man = snowman
грязе-вик (without -) = dirt man = dirtman aka snowman

Published hyperlink to the picture suggested the correct translation. But blogger has to do the checks!

Have nice Christmas days! 🙂
