Robert of Lincoln/Robert Lincoln [excerpt]
By William Cullen Bryant and the EastWestern University Dada Cluster

The EastWestern University Dada Cluster is a society dedicated to using Microsoft Office®'s built-in dictionary and grammar checkers to correct works of literature. It has also been charged with using Babelfish to translate works of literature into foreign languages and back again.

[ Original -> Autocorrected by Microsoft Word 2007 -> Korean -> English ]

New Version

Enjoyed the Brier and weeds, swing
   His small fence near the nests of
Mountain side or Mead,
   Robert Lincoln was saying his name.
         Link o ' Bob Bob o ' link,
         Spink, butt, ass,
Friendliness and safety is our nest
Summer flowers are hidden.
      Cheek, cheek, cheek.

Original Text

Merrily swinging on brier and weed,
   Near to the nest of his little dame,
Over the mountain-side or mead,
   Robert of Lincoln is telling his name.
         Bob-o'-link, bob-o'-link,
         Spink, spank, spink,
Snug and safe is this nest of ours,
Hidden among the summer flowers.
         Chee, chee, chee.
