Backwards Masking

The little bride tells me that I'm crazy.

While I won't argue that point, I will insist that something just ain't right with the folks that do the closed captions for Christopher Lowell.

The bride likes to watch his show for "decorating tips" but I think she really has fantasies about "converting" him. Just a theory. But back to the point at hand.

If you turn the sound down and start the closed captions, it really seems like some kind of backwards masking is going on. Or something. Something evil. Here's an example of what I'm talking about, you tell me if I'm wrong. If you need a better look, click on the picture and it will get scary big.

Not convinced? Okay, here's another example. What the hell is he saying? Whatever it is, he seems pretty confident about it.

There's something evil afoot. I don't know exactly what. But I don't like it...

I think those closed caption folks like to have fun with the deaf every now and then.

by the way, my mom, whose first language isn't english, calls it "club captions" no matter how many times I correct her. I think she does that to annoy me.
