Google Translate Fail

Here's something funny that I wanted to share to you.  Last night, my best bud and I chatted through Facebook and he told me about Google translate not doing its job.  He was trying to translate the phrase you are bad in Vietnamese but he accidentally clicked Filipino and the result was hilarious!  I tried it myself:

Ikaw ay maganda means you're beautiful  in English.  You are bad in Filipino is ang sama mo or masama kang tao.  

Then when he translated you are bad in Vietnamese and sent it to our common friend, it turned out that the translation was you are ugly.  LOL.  Google is really trying to offend people huh?

Nonetheless, Google translate sucks.  Never use that tool or you might offend someone.
