Breaststroke of the East

I don't use my hotmail account anymore. The junk mails piss me off. I used to be popular I guess, receiving invitations for this and that. Nowadays it's all penis enlargement advertisements. That's why I stopped using it. It's depressing.
Anyhow, yesterday out of the blue I decided to revisit my shrine of abandoned emails. To my surprise, amongst the sea of Herbal Viagra ads, I saw this forwarded mail by Parky.
And it seriously made my day.
It's been a while since I laughed this painfully.
It's a blog address of a Leibanese guy. Just that he decided to show the translation of Star Wars 3 from Chinese to English. Get it? It's an English translation from Chinese from English, get it? Ok ok, first they translated the movie into Chinese. After that, they translated it back to English. Get it? Get it?
It should be the same you say?

You'll just have to explore the humour of linguistics.
Again, so thankful I'm Chinese.
