It's Good Work...

...if you can get it.

I have been very busy lately at work....but had to post.

This is one of the best stories in a long time.

You have to know the system, to work the system.  Or, to work in the system.

This guy (below) hit the jackpot.  Mandela's funeral.  He was chosen to be the sign language interpreter for the world's leaders.  More heads of state were at the funeral, than, well...ever!  Millions watching.  The only flaw in his plan.  He doesn't know sign language.

Or....he is the African Mr. Bean?

And nobody had the courage at the moment to take him aside and ask him what the heck he was doing. It speaks to the human condition and the generally cowardly nature of world leaders --- partly the fear of seeming racist.

After the fact, people have shined a spotlight on it but nobody did at the time. Nobody bothered to vet this moron.

I only have one thing to say about that, but I don't know how to sign it.
