Default Strangest language of all ?

Aside from English, which has sod all consistency in pronunciation...are there any others which you look at and think "hold on, that's just mashing a keyboard"?

I just read this, posted on a YouTube video from Malta:

"ma kelekx alfej tikteb isem pajjizek laqi wliba li amiltu kontra lpulizija biss qas kin jimporta xejn"....WTF ?

So Maltese is up there definitely, and I have never seen the logic with Dutch or Afrikaans words either

Any others which look gobbleygook to you ?

Huh ? Incontinence knickers ?

Or does PMS stand for something other than 'pissed my self" ?
