It's a conspiracy, I tell ya!

Go to Google Translate and translate "Heath Ledger is dead" from English to Spanish.

UPDATED: As Matt pointed out in the comments, the "conspiracy" is over. Apparently after it hit Fark, it got enough publicity that someone from Google thought it would behoove them to fix it. People at Google read Fark? GBTW!

Anyway, for the record books, it was translating "Heath Ledger is dead" to "Tom Cruise esta muerto."

And it was really funny to go to the Fark comment thread after it was fixed and read all the comments of people saying that they didn't get the joke.

They fixed it. :-(

For posterity's sake (if you ever look back on this post years in the future) when you typed that in, the translation came out as "Tom Cruise està muerto."
