A Chinese journalist—and Google Translate’s—take on the Everson family’s Thanksgiving

A Chinese journalist (and Google Translate's) take on the Everson Thanksgiving

Chengdu kitchen into the American family to experience the Thanksgiving Day dinner

Remember last Thanksgiving when my family hosted seven Chinese journalists? I just found one of their recaps online:

chengdu.cn: Chengdu kitchen into the American family to experience the Thanksgiving Day dinner

Of course, it’s in Chinese. And I can’t read Chinese. So I ran it through Google Translate. The results aren’t quite What’s Up, Tiger Lily?, but the translation has some hilarious moments. I’m not going to bother to correct Google Translate, as it might hurt my SEO. I’ll just let you, gentle reader, guess where it might have gone wrong.
