Hats off to Machine Translation

Hmmm…  I need to rethink the pedagogical value of our videos.  Here is a comment from Youtube:

私は今ているおかげで私と言うのおかげで帽子を教えて
(translation)
thanks. i can now say thank you in japanese

Usually a machine translation of Japanese is funny.  It is funny because you can see how the error erred.  But I have no idea how any of this “translation” became what it became.  I mean, 帽子 boushi?
