That's brilliant. I put it into Google Chrome and it did an automatic translation of he text. I also got to read about what Paddy Power had done to the poor Cerne Abbas Giant. The National Trust must have been furious.

The Google English translation is hilarious.

Quarryquest recently posted a picture of a similar plant, though I'm not sure if it was the identical species.

I guess they really have no idea just how bad the translation is.

Czech isn't a language Google will have such a big database on.

Without the original, you wouldn't have a chance of doing a decent job, especially on anything scientific.

"With the first rays of the sun the whole thing collapses, the tip lays aside from his quiver and such a hood, roof, which opens above the genitals plants, so there it rained and nehnilo. And I hope there will develop seeds."

I didn't invent it :)

It did read a bit like a fan porn story...
