The Ebonics translation Game

We have classes to teach Ebonics, but I enjoy taking it in the other direction, and translating Ebonics back into English. I'll give an example that I did a while back:

Ebonics:
Quote:
WESTCHESTER HIGH LETS GO MA NIG. REP DA HOME OF THE BAD 1s WIT PRIDE FOLK. FROM 1 chester to another i wanna say keep goin hard. no homo. U came a long way since 4D. We used 2 mash yall. LOL. But look who n da NBA and look who lookin him up on youtube. Lifes crazy. Good lucc ma nigga and keep it cali
English translation:
Quote:
We both attended Westchester High my friend, so please represent our educational facility with as much pride as possible. From one alumnus to another I would like to say please keep working hard and strive not to be a homosexual. You have gained a great deal of experience and success since I knew you back when we lived at an address that included the number and letter combination of 4D. At that time we used to play basketball in a profound and violent way with a lot of success. But as times see themselves it seems it is you who has achieved the ultimate success and it is I looking in from the outside. Things do not always play themselves out as we might expect. My best wishes to you for a prosperous career and stay true to your roots.
Give it a try! You can source the original Ebonics wherever you happen to find them. Mine came from a comment on an NBA youtube video (hint, this is a good source!).

Re: The Ebonics translation Game

My whiteness doesn't know if this is the same thing you are talking about but I found this site sometime ago and it translates most sites into ebonics (I believe it is ebonics)
