We enjoyed this headline culled from today's Newsbytes so much that that we ran it through The Register's very own BabelFish engine. And this is how it turned out. Sothebys has sex for the first time with leaning prostitute. Translators' notes: Auction site we assume this a noun, not an imperative. Pull is English, English slang for having sex with someone for the first time, as in did you see the beautiful bird he pulled. Listing means leaning dangerously. And if you're interested, the Auction site story revolves around a Thai tart selling her services on an Indian web site. ®
