My history teacher recently challenged us to take this paragraph:

Laffes, your Mother asked you to make some forced eggs. Use ye wee Pipkin and make sure that ye Beggar's Velvet are taken care of before you go to ye Dance. Pick some Sallats for your Pottage.

and translate it from that into modern english. That's the language that the colonial era settlers and english speaking peoples would have used. So. Who thinks they can do it and do it correctly?

Post your translations here and I'll PM you if you're right, but don't tell anybody! I'd like to keep the answer secret for a few days, just to see how many people get it right.

Son, your mother asked you to cook some eggs. Use your napkin and make sure the dirty laundry is taken care of before you go to the dance. Pick some vegetables for your food.

Haha. That was way off.
