This is hilarious.
Just now on Channel 2 News from Portland, OR, they had to explain that last night they did NOT say that Joe Biden was "prone to gas." A woman wrote in asking: "Do you mean that he burps and farts? What an odd thing to say." In fact, they had said he is "prone to gaffes," but the closed-captioning-for-the-hearing-impaired person misheard them.

As Emily Litella would have said: "Never mind."

3. " the closed- captioning- for- the- hearing- impaired person misheard them." O RLY ?
Edited on Thu Aug-21-08 08:34 PM by ColbertWatcher
I think closed-captioning is read (seen) not heard.

(ON EDIT)
Oh, wait, you mean the person who makes the closed captioning?

"I had a successful dump. I dropped everything at the dump. It all worked out and by the way I got a second load, guys, ..."

14. it's never a good idea to throw the captioner under the bus....

24. Hillarious. Just emailed it to a friend in Portland
about those captions: Jay Leno once tried to imagine close captioning "The View" where they, apparently, talk into each other and over each other and pretty soon his imaginary screen was filled with "blah blah blah..."
