Ridiculous translations provide the simplest and funniest comic gambits in David Henry Hwang's Chinglish, which generated roar after roar of hilarity when it opened Berkeley Rep's season in the Roda Theater a few days ago.
Bad English translations from Chinese have long been a comic favorite. One I like is a menu that offers stir-fried Wikipedia (does it let you edit your own meal?). Another great one I recently came across is a Chinese restaraunt called "Translate Server Error". Oops.
