Wackiest translation I've ever seen:

Storm Make-Up Day (similar to snow days up North, we have them for hurricane school closures)

translated into Spanish as:

Dia de Maquillaje de Vacaciones/Asalta de Estudiante

This literally means--well, nothing really as it is not in any way grammatically sound--but can be paraphrased as:

Cosmetics Day Vacation/Student Assault

In other words, we are giving the students a day off to use cosmetics and attack someone!!

Wow.........we could make a boardgame outta that!
