What are your most memorable Spanish-English translations on Duolingo?

I'm interested to hear some of the comedy gold that Duolingo supplies... My favourite so far is "I am eating bread and crying on the floor"!

I really liked, " Tu camisa, por favor." :-)

Wait a minute, is that a pick-up line or a stick-up line?

haha I like that one because it could be translated two different ways:

1). My cat speaks english! 2). My car jack speaks english!

what a quality sentence :)

I like this! It is quite funny though. When I was last in Tenerife I had to give a dog commands in Spanish, my mum thought it was hilarious but the poor thing wouldn't understand English!

My favorites are, "I am a horse. I speak English."

"The girl eats spiders."

"Are you an engine?"

"The birds read the newspaper."

“I am a duck. I speak Spanish.” Soy un pato. Yo hablo español.

There are some crackers, I agree, but none as bad as my attempt in Spain earlier this year, which had the owner of the property in stitches when I told her about her livestock, explaining to her the following in my perfect, hem-hem, Spanish:

-"Your black biscuit has laid an egg."

Evidently I was supposed to use "gallina" and not "galleta".

"Usted corta el queso."

The formal "usted" adds a lot.
