Sign Language Guy At Mandela Memorial Wasn't Channeling Sarah Palin, He's Just Actually Mentally Ill
You guys, now we are sad, because thepossibly fake sign language guy at Nelson Mandela's memorial service is actually schizophrenic, and, according to him, "violent," "a lot," and was "seeing angels" while he "signed." And that is why you get today's dose of kittens, because sometimes things make us sad, and then we insist on making you sad, and then we give you kittens. We are basically an abusive husband, now that we think about it.
“What happened that day, I see angels come to the stadium … I start realizing that the problem is here. And the problem, I don’t know the attack of this problem, how will it comes. Sometimes I react violent on that place. Sometimes I will see things that chase me,” Jantjie said.
“I was in a very difficult position,” he added. “And remember those people, the president and everyone, they were armed, there was armed police around me. If I start panicking I’ll start being a problem. I have to deal with this in a manner so that I mustn’t embarrass my country.”
Asked how often he had become violent, he said “a lot” while declining to provide details.
A million cheers for Thamsanqa Jantjie for keeping calm and carrying on -- GOOD JOB THAMSANQA JANTJIE!!! WE ARE PROUD OF YOU!!! -- even if that carrying on did look an awful lot like third-base coaching for the Mets.
