Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

It turns out that Google Translate can do way more than translate a foreign business documents, help confused travelers, or decode what your mail order bride is saying, according to Gizmodo.

In fact, if you go to Google Translate and set both language transition settings to German, you've got a good time on your hands. Copy and paste the following into the text box and click "listen":

"pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch"

Try a few different languages for various effects. Yeeeeah, boy.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
