And now for something completely different

And this certainly is different!

... the signature sound of legendary alternative rock band, Depeche Mode has been translated to The Sims native Simlish language for the first time ever. ... The Sims development team created the unique Simlish language by experimenting with fractured Ukrainian and Tagalog, the language of the Philippines. Inspired by the code talkers of WWII, Sims creator Will Wright also suggested experimenting with Navajo.

Guess it's an illlustration of how language evolves?

Wow - the kids are going to be surprised to hear their favorite game is half Ukrainian.
