Sometimes you just have to go

Translation programs on the web often give amusing results. Consider this post about the rules of the game of chess from the Italian Blog Scacchierando. Under the section on draws, a Google translation of the page produces this gem:

When one of the King is found in "stall"

So apparently if you are losing the game, all you need to do is pick up your King off the board and take it to the toilet with you.

Obviously, the correct translation would have been something like 'When one of the Kings is in "Stalemate".'
