Back when I had my job as a Captioneer for TV/Video, my fellow coworkers and I used to play a game…We’d send around the “Best Line Of the Day” or “Night” depending on the shift. And there was no requirement for what was sent. It was whatever struck us as particularly funny, ironic, or just plain dumb on whatever show we were working on. There were some winners, let me just tell you. You haven’t truly experienced the depths of the bottom of the TV barrel until you spend an entire shift captioning Irish porn about a family of shapeshifters. Or “Shark Attack IV: Megaldon!” (Which I still haven’t picked up on DVD yet. Hmm…)
And because I know y’all are wondering it was… [SEDUCTIVE MOANING] and then later [MOANING CONTINUES] With an ocassional “Ooh, baby! Oh, yeah!” thrown in periodically.
Sorry. I digressed.
ANYWAY…I am out here in DamnIt’sHotVille, AZ and surfing the California sites and keeping an eye on the fire in Griffith Park. And in scrolling through the photos I came upon a Best Line of the Day…
“Dante’s View was destroyed by the inferno.”
Do you think the guy has any idea how entertaining that caption is?
Knitting content soon…Promise. I have another Clapotis on the needles as well as a lace snowflake, and a number of scarves, including one for my friend in Alpaca and Silk.
