WHAT? (or) FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO, LIKE ME, HAVE SOME HEARING LOSS & HAVE TO WATCH TV WITH CLOSED CAPTIONS (PART 2)


(I did this theme with the same title in 2015.  
For Part 1,  click here.
But this entire post is new.)

Whether the captioning is done by machine or by a live person,

 it is not always exact.
I am often amused & sometimes confused.

A lot of them are in the news:












This probably sums up the news:


or in debates:

Sports has its fair share: 


And let us not forget movies & TV shows:











This one is my favorite:



                                    















I've run this one before, but I love it:

P.S.  My favorite author, Carol Wyer has signed for 2 brand new comedies with Canelo publishing. The first ‘What Happens In France...’ will be out Feb. 4th, 2019 & the second in April.

  1. Hi-deaf made me chuckle.
    I still remember being taken to a Russian version of King Lear as a child. In the scene where eyes were poked out the sub-title read HOWL, HOWL, HOWL. Which seems appropriate.

  2. I thought I had hearing loss for years, turns out I just wasn't paying attention. I don't have any need for closed captions yet.

  4. Firstname Lastnanme cracked me up. When my company was here we decided to watch Ozzie and Son. I said, it had better be closed captioned for I have never understood a word he says. We both laughed when we saw Ozzie actually was CC. I felt sorry for the poor soul who had to translate what Ozzie said.

  6. That batter would need more than five home runs for me to consider him a pimp hitter. I like the dog movie captions!

    1. How many would he need to be a pimp hitter?

Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
