The Benefits of Piracy

From -- Engrish hilarity on badly bootlegged Star Wars DVD

Badly translated subtitles on a pirated copy of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith provide many happy moments of beverage-through-nostrils yukkage. Sample: Anakin to Obi-Wan --"I was just made by the Presbyterian Church." Hard to believe this is real, but even if the post were a hoax, it's a fun one.

Reader Comment (from boingboing): Paul Berger says,
I posted a similar story last week on my blog . Unfortunately I don't have a photograph--it came via an email from my mother-in-law, of all people. She wrote, "My first attempt brought up the subtitles, probably the funniest thing about the film. An attack from the rear is translated as 'he is coming into my behind'."
