Mainichi Newspaper / August 16, 2013 (goofy Google Translate)

The final curtain is dropping on the Nikko Monkey Corps (nikko saru gundan), the famous monkey school in Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture at the end of the year because lack of foreign trainers. Nikko Monkey Corps had been highly visited theme park…but after Fukushima nuclear accident the foreign trainers abruptly ran back to their homeland. In addition, the Monkey Corps was aging thus making training difficult

after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, there was a shortage foreign trainers since they all returned home. To teach the monkey tricks difficult and monkeys can be gay, was aging [sic]. (loose Google Translation)

  1. It is almost impressive that machine translation can convert 芸ができるサル to “monkeys can be gay.”
    (芸が = the arts)

    Oh, it gets better…

    Google-Translate-gay

    So google translation also joined the dark side ? Was one of the last thing working half decently…
    Also…
    If they need someone to sadistically murder the monkeys… They can call me anytime…

    What’s really strange is if you put サルに芸を教えることが難しくなり、芸ができるサルも高齢化していた into Google you get “monkeys can be gay” but if you just translate 芸ができるサル it gives you “monkeys can be art”.
