Your printer is misinterpreting GIMP's output as text -- what the
output reads is literal postscript.  Dunno what exactly causes it, but
I know that if you've got a misconfiguration between GIMP-Print (well,
techincally it's Gutenprint now), your printing system or setup, and
your printer, then that's what'll happen.

What version of GIMP, and Gimp/Gutenprint are you using, and what
printing system or setup, printer, and OS (+ version) are you using? 
That might help.

What else did you print, and how did you print it (e.g. from what application)?
