Mikey1969: Rincewind53: Or maybe people should stop making fun of interpreters.

I've never seen one that looks more like a spastic seal being slowly dropped into a woodchipper, I think this chick sucks at what she does. I didn't recognize a single sign, and she's throwing so much body English into those signs, even if you did recognize one, you wouldn't be sure you were seeing it right. It's like hiring Mushmouth from Fat Albert to verbally translate.


HOLY FARK, you just made me laugh so hard I saw stars!
Thank you! That was the best laugh I had all week. You need to write for a show because that's comedic gold right there.

TomD9938: Smelly Pirate Hooker: The Weather Channel is calling it "Nemo." They've started naming winter storms like the NWS names hurricanes.

Is that for everywhere, or just when it snows in the northeast? If it's everywhere I'm going to get an "I Survived ______ " shirt made up.


Down here in Tennessee, we had winter storm Khan a couple of weeks ago.  (And, yes, you can imagine the fun the local media had with that one)

cretinbob: Let's wait and see if it's a blizzard before we call it a blizzard, shall we?


Well the back half of that has been snowing here near Toronto for over 24 hours and we have an easy foot and change, the nor-easter half looks even bigger... It will be a blizzard.

for those actually wondering what she is saying, and the deal with the tongue, from my friend, a sign language student  "the interpreter is cautioning against people driving far from home - the tongue shows a far distance and modifies the sign for DRIVE. "

A lot of "KHAAAAAAAN!!!" references, I'm sure.

Sure enough, in Minnesota we get ours named now as well. We've got Winter Storm Orko coming in on Sunday night. Look for wall to wall coverage on CNN.

Zeno-25: Why do they have these sign language people anyway? Did everyone forget about closed captioning?


Closed Captioning only works well when transcribers have time to create the CC, proof read it..and production synchs it with dialog.

In live events it's difficult--turn on CC and watch a local news cast you'll see lots of errors in the CC as the typists try to keep up with the unscripted words. That's something you don't want for emergency or press events.

That is untrue. There are many ways to indicate distance, and THAT is not one of them.

look here my sensitive friend. i don't laugh at people who mis-step and hurt their self. in take no delight in the morbidly obese or any of society's other train wrecks. i don't often go out in public but i have noticed it is not at all unusual to see people in diners and restaurants signing. i don't give it a second thought or glance. but corn on the cob is just plain fun to view. i apologize if i've offended your sensibilities. my sense of humor knows no boundaries.

Dude, people making stage gestures in front of a camera (where they're not necessary to the medium) will always be funny, whether it's intentional (there's a large room with deaf people in the far back behind the camera) or not, and whether it's an interpreter or not.

Pictures/videos of stage actors and musicians from front rows are generally funny as hell, too.

Fan Lady. Don't give her any grief. She will hurt you.

She used to be the Men's Heavyweight Champion of the World. But sadly, she fell in love with Cassius Clay, who disappointed her, because Clay don't swing that way.

The sign language interpreter was giving good advice for people trapped in the blizzard: Don't eat yellow snow.

Girl, you don't need a fan you need a SALAD.


Geez it took this long to make the first joke about the fat black biatch fanning herself IN THE MIDDLE OF farkING WINTER!

She looks like a typical southern black lady but in their defense its usually 100+ degrees when they are fanning themselves.

It's not putting on a show, it's relaying critical information. And as someone said up thread, the logistics involved with live CC make it less preferable to a live interpreter.
