opening theme closed captioning

I always find it interesting when a show's opening theme is captioned differently on a different day.

Example one goes to Samurai Jack. Sometimes it's captioned as "Gotta Get Back... Back to the Past." Other times it's "Gotta Be Back... Back to the Past."

Example two: Family Guy: sometimes it's captioned as "All the things that make us laugh and cry." which makes perfect sense. Other times, it's captioned as "All the things that make us effin' cry."

yeah. okay. i'm done now.

lol, wtf.
That's bs.

I'm guessing it's not very strict.... :P Captions aren't used that much I guess. (I do however favor condoms-- I mean captions, though.)

captions are typed in by someone on an episode basis. i think some people just don't hear the words right all the time.


i favor condom captions too. :)

Condom Captions...
Once upon a time, the owner of the Internet company I used to work for asked us to try coming up with some promotional give-away ideas for our enhanced network for an upcoming trade show.

My friend Mike (R.I.P) and I came up with printing slogans with our corporate logo on custom condom wrappers with the following captions:

[Company Logo]: Because we're up 99.999% of the time
[Company Logo]: Working hard to get you your porn.
and finally
[Company Logo]: We've got you covered.

Needless to say, they didn't take any of our ideas...

You know, that might make sense. Because sometimes I hear "laugh and cry" other times I swear they say "effin' cry." If I were the caption typist, I'd probably get it screwed up half the time.

jamey and i have actually argued (not really argue, but discuss. and i'm right.) about whether they say "laugh and cry" or "effin' cry." he says it's "effin'". i say it's "laugh and". i didn't realize it was an issue outside of our apartment. hehe. amusing.

a long time ago, edie brickell and the new bohemians came out with this song called "What I Am". Most of the words in the song were pretty indistinguishable, but the biggest debate i had with some of my friends was whether or not one set of lyrics was "shove me in the shallow waters before i get too deep" or "choke me in the shallow waters before i get too deep." The first one makes more sense, and that's what i thought it was. Then i got the album and discovered that it was "choke".

we weren't friends after that.

well, not really, but makes for a funny story.
