I have a few favorites, probably not the oddest, but... in French "Ton canard est parfait!" Your duck is perfect. It's just fun to say, and it makes me think of someone out walking a duck. Also, in Russian, "Эти актеры уже в такси" which is, These actors are already in the taxi. Imagining that conversation just cracks me up. And of course, Spanish, Tu oso bebe cerveza. Your bear drinks beer.
