FREE NELSON MANDELA.....FROM BEING ASSOCIATED WITH HIS MEMORIAL SERVICE. WHAT THE FAKE SIGN LANGUAGE EXPERT FOR THE DEAF REALLY SAID.
It doesn't end there. When the NBC "Today" show in the US realised what was going on, one of their producers came up with some fake sign language of his own.
As the Daily News reported:
A producer on NBC's "Today" show clearly misread the signs Wednesday.
Reporting on the uproar over the apparently fraudulent sign language interpreter who worked the stage during the Nelson Mandela memorial service during the morning show's "Today's Take" segment, an unidentified producer popped in an inset and mimed his own fake sign language.
Seeming to catch on to the tasteless attempt at humor on the monitor, co-host Natalie Morales said, "That is horrific."
The inset disappeared and Morales, Willie Geist and Al Roker attempted to steer the discussion back on track to the news of the day.
'We aired a joke in our 9:00 hour that was offensive. We apologize to our viewers," a rep for "Today" said in a tweet sent minutes after the sight gag aired.
The offensive visual was removed on the video of Wednesday's telecast on the "Today" show site.
The incident comes amid the major international scandal that unfolded in Johannesburg after the disclosure from the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa that the man who stood inches away from President Obama and other world dignitaries was just "flapping his arms around."
"He was moving his hands around, but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for," the director, Bruno Druchen, told the Associated Press.
The South African government is investigating how the embarrassing gaffe could happen.
UPDATE ON NELSON MANDELA'S MEMORIAL SERVICE WITH HELLE (PRIME MINISTER OF DENMARK) THE PRICK TEASER.
I said in the first post that Obama's wife didn't look happy. I wonder what will come out next, an image of him giving her one?
The other thing that occurred to me after I made the first post is:
"If she is Neil Kinnock's daughter in law, how come her name is Thorning-Schmidt?

A SURE SIGN OF GLOBAL WARMING, NOT....YESTERDAY, THE COLDEST DAY EVER RECORDED ON EARTH WAS ANNOUNCED, -94.7C (-135.8F)
Isn't global warming called climate change now?
It has changed. It was announced yesterday that in August 2010 a temperature of -94.7C (-135.8F) was recorded in East Antarctica.
They need to rehouse Al Gore's polar bears from the Arctic, where they are sitting on bits of ice which are melting beneath their feet, to the Antarctic, where they can have all the ice they want.
