Only The Sangfroid

Mark is of fair average intelligence, who is neither perverse, nor morbid or suspicious of mind, nor avid for scandal. He does live in an ivory tower.

The camera’s watching. He takes a breath… @ABCNews24’s captions go wrong (courtesy @screamingwall) #auspol

If you haven’t checked out The Screaming Wall on Tumblr, you should.  It’s the blog of one of my ridiculously talented friends.  By night, he works on all manner of creative works.  By day, he works beneath a television screen upon which ABC News 24 is broadcast on silent with captions.

During a recent appearance by the Leader of the Opposition, the captions appear to have been downloaded for a different program.  Hilarity ensued.  Fortunately, my friend was there with a phone camera to capture the dadaist gloriousness from which I’ve picked out some of the best.  For the full set, check out The Screaming Wall.
