Real sign language interpreter translates impostor from Mandela funeral

Jimmy Kimmel got a real sign language interpreter to translate, and put into words, what the fake sign interpreter was actually saying at Nelson Mandela’s funeral.

For any who missed it, the guy signing at Mandela’s funeral was some kind of nut who was just faking it. Rather disturbing, considering world leaders – including President Obama – and other important people were permitted right next to the guy who clearly wasn’t vetted.


Here’s some of the translation – I love this:

“Hello, welcome so far. Well cigarette join, bringing in different to you – a circle – and I would like to pray this offering, basically this is fun, all of these balls, to prove this is good, I’m sorry.”
