Chase found himself a prisoner in an experiment to first lipread onscreen movies, then provide live sign language "captions" for deaf :deaf: patrons of the theater. :applause: :applause: :applause:

Happy captionin' and have a Jolly TLAPD!

Kudos were given to the Australian Navy for unleashing one of the most diabolical naval weapons, adorable kitties who become psycho raging, war machines when wet. They are undefeated in naval battle to this day.

It's time for the traditional non-political picture to unwind from this especially stressful Election Day. Have a hamster, folks!

Please Santa, give me an e-reader for Christmas. I need to know what happens on page 3, and I can't turn the paper pages myself.

It's A Daft Punk Christmas! Out now on iTunes and Spotify, and on vinyl wherever such awesome things are sold.


ETA: Holy smokes, it actually exists, folks.

ETA2: Or it doesn't. Agree with the article; it's a darn fun spoof in any case.
