No Sign

If you get the chance to watch some of the Mandela memorial speeches, do watch out for the sign language interpreter. I was a bit puzzled watching him do almost nothing, and none of it meaningful, so I was reassured today to find he seems to have been a complete fraud (no shit, Sherlock) and no one knows quite how he got the gig. Even upstages the selfie Obama let himself get into, much to Michelle's disgust.

Actually Michelle wasn't disgusted w/ Obama..the photographer said that just seconds before he snapped the pic she was joking around and laughing too. And also, the mood in the memorial was celebration and jovial. I'm not sure what the deal is with the sign language person though, but I feel better about Obama not making a faux pas.

But she did then insert herself between them, and she still wasn't looking happy. Can't lift a link but it's in today's Metro newspaper online

I gather he claims to have been having a 'Schizophrenic episode' - if he wasn't, that must rate as the best excuse in the history of the world ;0) I also heard them say on the radio that, strangely, they can't seem to get hold of anyone at the company they hired him from.....
