"If I really am the father of Italian Western, how many bastards I've impregnated!" -Leone (Or something like that. I translated that from Finnish.)
Any thoughts?

There's something wrong with either your translation or Leone's original formulation. "How many I've impregnated with bastards" gets at the idea but is inelegant. I would go with "How many bastards I've sired." (or "spawned").

I knew it was bad idea to try to translate that by myself Grin! But do you get the idea?

"How many I've impregnated with bastards"


the exact quote is...

"How many S.O.Bs do you think I have given birth to?"

Thanks! Afro I really should have sought that and not tried to translate it by myself. (If you understand what I'm trying to say here.)

  I've got an idea, Ms, why don't you start this whole thing over again? Afro
