GT Funny Translations

I'm not sure if there ever was a thread like this, but I'd like to share some funny GT translations.

There have been multiple threads like this, though not in a long time. Finding examples is all too easy.

This was so funny to me that I had to screenshot it and add the picture with memetext:

Pretty much any sentence with まんこ, which often gets translated as various things like "pencil", "squirrel", "man" or anything else that isn't what it really means: cunt, as in a vulgar term for female genitalia. In katakana, マンコ, though, it does get translated as "pussy". Strangely enough, I could've sworn I posted this before or at least saw somebody post about it... but there are only two results when searching まんこ on this forum and neither one has anything to do with Google Translate, so apparently not. Maybe on some other forum or something...?

I know both manko and avici. I'm bad. :)
