How do you sign the phrase “zero fucks“, because that’s exactly as many fucks the no language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s memorial gave about translating the speeches for deaf people. During the memorial, a supposed ASL interpreter stood to the side of the podium and signed the speeches, but many deaf people, including Bruce Druchen of the Deaf Federation of South Africa, tweeted that he wasn’t signing in South African or American sign languages.
For deaf people, watching this scammer sign was the equivalent of hearing people listening to Kanye rant. It was all gibberish.
I know I shouldn’t blog about a fake language interpreter, but the audacity of it all is just too ridiculous to not mention. The man stood there for close to 5 hours!!!
I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity and God gave me brawn and brains to work.
I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome.
I asked for patience and God placed me in situations where I was forced to wait.
I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities.
I asked for everything so I could enjoy life.
Instead, He gave me life so I could enjoy everything.
I received nothing I wanted, I received everything I needed.
#Mandela’s memorial service had some EXTRA ghetto / classless moments. Almost ashamed to be black right now. Almost.
Here are a couple of moments you won’t see televised in the US:
- Obama was like 1h30 minutes late to the service. #AreYouSerious? You flew half way across the world but couldn’t show up on time?
- The MC took the mic out of the Indian presidents hands (while he was speaking) to tell people sitting in the nosebleeds section to be quiet. Erm… #WhatTheFucKAreYouDoing???
- Archbishop Tutu who was was scheduled to give the final benediction got so pissed at the crowd, he yelled at them and told them he wouldn’t “bless them until [he] could hear a pin drop”. #SomebodyNeedsJesus
I can’t… I just can’t sometimes. #Sigh
