Mystical head

Started by: jacks (435) 

I have a lot of poems on a site called Poemhunter. There are poems on there by people who's first language is obviously not English. They translate them somehow, and it usually ends up not working at all. For example this is the title of just one, “A place where love fits on mystical head” I get hours of enjoyment reading them.

Jacks , the same thing happens on Amazon reviews . The rendering of some idiomatic phrases are brilliant.

The problem is, translating from another language into English is nigh impossible, because meanings can be lost in that translation. I have a funny label but I can't post it as it's in Microsoft Photo Editor, so there's no link, but I'll type out part of it for you verbatim, except for the named product:
