There's this dude asking me to copy-edit for him on my talkpage, and I have a job that pretty much takes up all my time. Do we still have a group of fearless copy-editors about?--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 23:45, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

What exactly needs done? --ChiefjusticeDS 23:48, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
S/he says s/he needs someone to correct the English on an essay on The Canterbury Tales.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 03:37, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
The post in question--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 03:40, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
And he came here? That boy ain't right in the head. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:49, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
Tell him to just copy and paste Wikipedia:Canterbury Tales. If that doesn't work, tell him about UN:PS. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 04:59, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
What he said. (Although if it's not related to the site the priority for me on ESL editing would be lower.)  Avast Matey!!! Happytimes are here!* Happytimes.gif (talk) (stalk) Π   ~ Xkey280 ~  05 Jan 2010 ~ 06:28 (UTC)
Well, forget about that, it's to late now. Hope they'll like the french accent my copy have. (isn't this rabbit soooo cuuuuute eh ?) Akromax 11:39, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, the UN:PS link was the one I was looking for. Thanks, Syndrome. Sorry, Akromax... you caught me as I was getting ready for work, Yesterday, otherwise, I would have been happy to help.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 12:31, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
No problem. By the way, my proposal is still valid : you can give me some articles you'd like to see translated into French, except if there are too many unstranslatable jokes, of course. Akromax 13:38, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
At first blush, I thought, "Hell yeah!" but looking over my articles, I doubt many would translate well. There's Braille, but I don't think that really counts. I suppose Super-intelligent pigeons could use the French touch, but, again, I'm pretty sure most of my work is untranslatable. Leporiphobia really isn't funny in English, to be honest, so if you wanna take it and make it better in French, you have my blessing.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 02:24, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

Here's Super-intelligent pigeons's translation :

And here's one article I made, and that really needs a correction. Someone motivated ? I'll give him a candy. ★Akromax★ 21:45, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

I played with it a bit. It's still a little rough. I think you could use another pair of eyes before moving it to the mainspace. I tried to tone down the overt racism without compromising the integrity of the joke, and that was hard. Too hard. I need a nap.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 00:00, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
Well, in fact, the racist tone IS the main humor part of this article. And I also wanted to receive threatening letters from Al-Quaïda, I confess... ★Akromax★ 12:40, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
Naw, you have to be famous for that to happen. Necropaxx (T) {~} Thursday, 16:47, Jan 7 2010
