English term or phrase: Frase terrible.
Es una frase en un juego de cartas, que no tiene que ver en nada con el juego ni con las cartas. A ver quién es capaz de traducir esto. (Es para niños)

The water must loosify the ollycules and wetly crossbounding happen. Sticky rice ball theory? Hmmm!

Explanation:
...pegajoso? Hmmmm

This is the way I understand it: the water will loosen the molecules which, when wet, will bind with each other. Likewise, when you make certain types of rice wet, it will stick together.
So you translate that and just move it around so that it doesn't make much sense anymore...
Anyway, that's how I approached it.
