Here's a mirror of the The English-to-12-Year-Old-AOLer-translator.

I can't find the email of the site owner, so if he or she wants I'll take the temporary mirror down, in any case it's a temporary mirror.

If you put OMG OMG LOL!!!1 into it, you get

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief,
That thou her maid art far more fair than she:
Be not her maid, since she is envious;
Her vestal livery is but sick and green
And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.
It is my lady, O, it is my love!
O, that she knew she were!
She speaks yet she says nothing: what of that?

Really weird.

From this we conclude that a steady state of idiocy is reached within two iterations. Discuss possible sociopoltical ramifications.

Civil, not one but 2 "i don't like it/this is not a valid fpp" posts in the same thread? Bad form.

The fact that you came back 9 hours later to again protest the thread's existence probably speaks volumes about you.

Also, dg wins.

Make it three.

The first was commenting on the actual wording for the text on the front page, not the content. The second was to point out that everyone seems to think it very entertaining to essentially repeat the same joke, which wasn't very funny to begin with. And this third is a final revisitation, to see if anything funny or interesting has come up in the meantime. I see that it has not, save for a personal attack, which I feel honor-bound to respond to.

Note that I never said this shouldn't be a valid FPP, nor did I say that I didn't like the link itself, so both your points are simply wrong. I don't know how many "volumes" this says about me except that perhaps I've got too much free time at my place of employment.
