Oisín?

Someone's posted my photo on this site, and I'd like to know what they are saying about it. I can get the gist of some of it with the translation widget, but some of the text is embedded in the picture:

http://jiyuzine.grandfun.biz/archives/youtube/post_213/

What kind of site is it and what's the context? If any of the comments relate to my photo, that'd be good to know too

It's a "news site" which has been running since August '07.

This particular blog entry says "Pictures of animals. I have one dog at my house, and I really think animals have facial expressions just like humans. lol. The expressions which animals suddenly show us every now and then can make us feel better, or can make us smile. lol. These are some pictures of cute animals."

The writing next to your picture says "Koara no machi! Hi, I'm Mimi. This is a koala which looks like it's plotting something. lol. Animals really make me feel better. When I see my lovely dog's face, I don't feel tired anymore!"

Strange....

Now I sit and wait for Oisin to come and tear my translation apart.(笑)

I think it's something about violent porn comics.

You should pick up Welsh and Gaelic.

^ Nah, I’ve got the Icelandic ones pretty much okay (usually). The Finnish ones are causing me a bit more trouble.

I know that's Welsh from the quadruple consonants.

I picked up maybe 6 words in that, but I still don't know what you said. I think the Irish call it Irish and not Gaelic. My Irish is about as good as my Italian, which is 1 semester good.

That's what it says... I really have to question the news-worthness of the blog post that used your picture though.

I think the translation says "Tentacles insert in various orifices."
