It reminds me the translation of Ronsard "L'esprit est fort mais
La chair est faible" (The mind is powerful but the flesh is weak)
which has been translated in english by some computer program by
"le whisky est bon mais la viande n'est pas bonne" that is
The whisky is good but the meat has bad taste!
