Weirdest Duolingo Phrases

What is the weirdest thing you have ever typed in a Duolingo lesson? Mine was "Yo soy un caballo. Yo hablo Ingles" which means "I am a horse. I speak English!"

When I was contributing to the Spanish course for English speakers I added many funny sentences. It was me who included "Yo soy un caballo. Yo hablo inglés". I also created these ones:

  • Luis eats soap.
  • The cat cooks a mouse.
  • My boss is a monkey.
  • I'm not a horse.
  • Luis is an elephant.
  • Luis is a duck.
  • The spider eats birds.
  • I'm a duck, I speak English.
  • Juan is a bull.
  • The girl eats spiders.

I just was tired of seeing sentences with animals drinking milk and eating bread so I decided that we needed something "different". :0)
