Translation Party!

Saw Translation Party today and found it too fun not to share. Type something in, and it translates back and forth to japanese until it finds a stable translation. Try putting in something with potentially subtle meaning, and hilarity ensues. For example, the following:

What the hell are you doing to my cat?Person A.
It's not my cat? Person B (Person a: No, it's MY cat, you weirdo).
It's my cat? Person A: I mean, I think it is.
That's my cat? Person B: obviously confused.
What is my cat? Person A: Says something deep and meaningful.
My cat? Person B: Still focused on the here and now.
What cats? Person B again: Cat? What cat? I don't know what you're talking about. I never heard anything so ridiculous.
Cat? Person A: trying to verify that person B speaks english.
Cat? Person B: No, I don't speak english
