Google Translate Turns LaLaLaLaLa into Bjork

Google Translate is fantastic and ever developing service provided by Google. My staff sometimes finds things that are to say the least strange. This is one is a good sample; when you translate from English to Icelandic the “words” Lalalalala (five times) Google will translate it as Bjork, the famous Icelandic singer. Not sure where they pull this from (maybe some funny Icelanders contributing and having fun while they are at it), but being an Icelander I can say for sure Lalalalala does not translate Björk.
