"Voilà l'anglais avec son sangfroid habituel", translated as "There goes the Englishman with his usual bloody cold".

The best mistranslation I ever came across, though, was "Rose, émue, répondit", valiantly mangled into "The pink emu laid another egg".

I'd laugh, but my throat hurts too much. I am a wimp when it comes to colds.
