    Hello. How do you say “That doesn’t make any sense?” Example usage:

    Person 1: Why did you overfeed my cat?

    Person 2: I’m sorry Mr. Rogers, but the cat brought a mouse in, leading me to think it was the pizza man with my delivery, so my first reaction was to feed him a burrito.

    Person 1: Wha…? That doesn’t make any sense.

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    • That doesn’t make any sense? > 그건 말이 안돼.

      Yeah, in that case, according to the context, it can be translated as “그건 말이 안돼”.
