Title: Brokeback Through The Looking Glass (the Malaysian subtitles thread)
Post by: Sheyne on April 04, 2006, 08:38:25 am
Okay, I've lived long enough to know that ANYTHING can happen.  So although I have no memory of ingesting ANY hallucinogenic or psychotropic substances prior to kicking back and watching my newly-obtained bootleg copy of BBM over the ironing tonight, I have to concede that perhaps it happened.

See I decided to turn the volume waaay down (son in bed asleep didn't really need to be awoken by some hot n heavy 2nd tent scene action) and switch on the subtitles.  Also to see if my copy shed any further light on the c'mere, c'mere / s'alright x 3 debates.  Forgetting, of course, that my copy (which was given to me by a Qld Police Officer no less!  ;D) came from the shores of Malaysia, where its granted they may have some difficulty in their grasp of the English language, not to mention dodgy hearing.

I'm glad I have seen Brokeback and know it by heart, cause otherwise I fear these subtitles may have lead me a tad astray! Check it out:

The lines (so far - haven't even watched the whole film yet) range from the bad:

LINE: Your folks just stop at Ennis? / Del Mar
SUBTITLE: Folks are here? / Balmore

LINE: You pair deuces lookin for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in here pronto..
SUBTITLE: You pay look for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in your pronto

LINE: Thought I'd asphyxiate from the smell
SUBTITLE: Thought I've to fix it from the smear

LINE: ..unless you wanna sit around tyin knots all day..
SUBTITLE: I'll get this one and see around town, that's all

To the WAAAY off-topic and incorrect:

LINE: Beats workin for my old man..
SUBTITLE: he used to work for my old man

LINE: So why didn't we get the powdered milk and the spuds?
SUBTITLE: Yes, why don't we get a pail of milk on the spot?

LINE: What if Aguirre finds out, hunh?
SUBTITLE: What if Gary finds out, huh?  (gary??)  ???

LINE: Spend half the night checkin for damn coyotes..
SUBTITLE: Spent happy nite and checking for damn Kyle  (kyle?!?!!?)  ??? ???

LINE: I am pretty good with a can opener though..
SUBTITLE: I'm am pretty good with a canoe though  (uuhhh.. good)  :-\


To the somewhat prophetic:

LINE: Tomorrow mornin we'll truck you up to the jump off
SUBTITLE: My man will check you out at the jump off  (i'll bet he will... binoculars an all)

LINE: Only thing, don't ever order soup
SUBTITLE: Only thing.. your man will order soup   :-*

LINE: I'm commutin 4 hours a day
SUBTITLE: I can meet you for hours a day  (we wish..  we also wish for it to be filmed..)

LINE: Aguirre's got no right makin me do this.
SUBTITLE: Gay's not rite to make me do this


I'm going to attempt to watch some more tomorrow.. I can't believe I didn't make it to the first reunion kiss!!

SUBTITLE: said my uncle went died, says you bring him down  (WTF?!?!)

LINE: You boys sure found a way to make the time pass up there..
SUBTITLE: You boys should find a way to make a turn pass up up you  (see above)

LINE: Twist your uncle Harolds in the hospital with pneumonia
SUBTITLE: you uncle is in hospital of ammonia (let this be a lesson to you - cleaning is BAD)

LINE: i'm gonna go up to the sheep now..
SUBTITLE: I'm going outta this sh*t now..

I cannot wait for the next installments of this.  Sheyne - too too funny. Thank you!
 I'm laughing so hard my dog thinks I'm barking at him.
You know those moments when somebody says "Tell ya what", or "soup", or anything else from Brokeback, and Brokies' eyes get that faraway look?  Now there're going to be moments of inexplicable laughter when somebody says "Kyle", or "ammonia"....

hahahhahah...very funny....

the scary thing is I have watched newsclips from that part of the world....mind you important serious NEWS!!

the person being interviewed says one thing...

the translation says something completely different...

here I am jumping up and down saying...that not what he said!!!!

sigh.....Malaysia has English as part of their school curriculum....

obviously these fine folk failed it.

I can't stop laughing.  I love language so much.  This is better than chocolate in the deliciosity department.

I rmember being in Malaysia very briefly once (I think it's a coincidence that my story, too, involves Malaysia, I'm not picking on them) in 1990, and being in a shopping mall.  Much of it looked exactly, weirdly like what it would have looked like in the United States, certain same brands (for some reason I remember Casio). 

Anyway, the one thing that really struck me as hilariously different was the English sayings on people's T shirts.  Things like "Hello yes happy park" written like it was a sentence that made sense.  "Now girl bunny."  I am making these up because I don't remember the real ones, but oh my god I love this sort of hing so much.  So wonderfully ridickulous.  I can't wait for the next installment, Sheyne.  Thank you for spreadin the joy.

Oh my god, Sheyne, I am killing myself laughing!! My kids have just come into my study wondering what the HELL is happening to me! I don't think they'd ever seen me laughing so hard. My son just asked if I needed a glass of water, and my 5-year-old daughter can't quite understand why I am crying, if I am supposed to be laughing...
PLEASE keep us up to date with the rest of the film as you go along.
One of my friend's got a son called Kyle, and I'm going to visit them soon... And at least now I can laugh instead of moaning when I do the housework!

Sheyne -

OH MY GOD.  I'm just echoing what everyone else has said, but I literally just sat here, by myself, for ten minutes, laughing my ass off.  My dog came running into the room to see what was going on!  This is the funniest thing I've seen in a while - please post more when you get a chance!  And thanks for starting this thread.

What is it that's so hilarious about people from strange lands eviscerating the English language?  It just pushes all my funny buttons.  Ah, the sweet pleasures of laughing at people.

I can only hope that when I speak French, I manage to provide the same high quality entertainment.  It just wouldn't be fair, otherwise.

I think, if I have to choose my absolute favourite, though (and I have so many favourites), it has to be "What if Gary finds out, huh?"  Gary!  The mysterious third angle of the love triangle!  What if Gary finds out?  I shudder to think of the consequences.  Poor Gary.  He'd be so upset.  No cowboy of his own to keep him warm.  You know, I can live with the boys cheating on their wives, but it's the cheating on Gary that I can't forgive.

I know.  I'm sitting here, eating smarties (not the orange ones, they're disgusting), and trying to decide what's better:  Smarties or Gary?  Smarties or Gary?  Smarties or Gary?




Gary.

A smartie is momentary, but Gary is forever.

Thanks again Sheyne for this.  I've been chuckling all day.

and now Chanterais has got me thinking of the 'daddy or chips' advert for mccains. I love that ad!

OT - but I didn't imagine you with a kiddie sheyne - look entirely far too young to have a kiddie! (who must be a gorgeous little 'un given your looks...!)

This line just slayed me:

SUBTITLE: You pay look for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in your pronto


In where?

The 'something lost in the translation' works both ways.  One woman was wearing one of those cool t-shirts with Chinese characters on it, just to be pulled aside by her Asian friend and told that her t-shirt said "I f--k dragons"

Post by: Sheyne on April 05, 2006, 06:22:21 am
Lol.. here we go, Part II.  For newcomers to the thread, we pick up on “Brokeback Through The Looking Glass”, just after the cowboys, the canoe-savvy Jack Twist and uncle-killing Ennis Balmore have left Brokeback Mountain.  The things we have learnt from the story so far is that ammonia is bad, often putting uncles in hospital. We also learnt that Ennis (presumably right after he was denied the pail of milk on the spot) made Jack’s uncle so depressed he killed himself, Jack didn’t end up catching up with damn Kyle, for whom he searched all night and the Lord Sidious of this story is somebody called Gary.  Wait!! I wonder if Kyle is the thus-far-nameless bandy-legged Basque???  Hmm.. the plot thickens!  Here I was thinking this story was just about two men in love.. we’ve all missed the subtle nuances of mental illness, hunger, murder… and canoes.

Onto Part II. (if that was double dutch, by the way, check out the start of the thread)  Please note that any spelling errors / bad punctuation are direct quotes!!

LINE: Ennis, can you wipe Alma Jnr's nose?
SUBTITLE: Ennis could you pump Junior's nose?

LINE: Are you sure the girls are asleep?
SUBTITLE: I should go to sleep. (yes, Alma, you should)

LINE: I'd like to buy Jimbo here a beer.
SUBTITLE: I'd like to buy Jim O'Neal a beer.  (oh, that clears it up..)

LINE: So save your money for your next entry fee, cowboy.
SUBTITLE: So. Save money for next injury feet, cowboy.

LINE: Y'ever try calf ropin'?
SUBTITLE: You're tracked down a bit.

*please excuse the graphic language here - its just not as funny with asterixes through it*

LINE: Wooee, look at this crowd!  Be a lotta pussy on the hump in a crowd like this!!
SUBTITLE: Look at this god!  There're lots of pussies on the ground like this

LINE: You need to shut your slopbucket mouth, y'hear?
SUBTITLE: You need to shut your "starbug" mouth, you hear  (I didn't add those quotation marks guys..)

LINE: Lureen Newsome. Her dad sells farm equipment, I mean big farm equipment.
SUBTITLE: Laren Newsom. Her dad sells farmer things, I mean big farmer.

LINE: My daddy's the hurry, sposed to be home with the car by midnight.
SUBTITLE: My body is in hurry, I should be home in the midnite   (well, she's gettin naked with Jake G, can't blame her body, really)

LINE: I can already see what little Bobby looks like.
SUBTITLE: I already see a little barbie she looks like.  (hmm)

LINE: For you forgettin to bring that harmonica..
SUBTITLE: you forget to bring me Hallmark

LINE: New model comin in this week, remember?
SUBTITLE: Your mother coming down this week

LINE: Ennis there's an opening at the power company, might be good pay
SUBTITLE: In the state open and all that power company might pay

LINE: As far behind as we are on the bills...
SUBTITLE: If far behind, we're the best.   (yup, you go girl)

LINE: I'd have em if you'd support em.
SUBTITLE: I don't have you to support em   (i thought this was interesting...)

LINE: Senor..
SUBTITLE: Here we are   (you bet)

*okay I'm only putting in the first line of this.. cause i figure you all know this speech by heart*

LINE: I used to wonder how come you never bought any trouts home...  (etc)
SUBTITLE: I used to wonder how come you never bought any tracts homes. You always say you can't play any. You know how mean the gal like fish. So 1 nite, i got your queer case open up before you win your little trip..

LINE: Price tags still on it after five years..
SUBTITLE: But I take still long after 5 years..

Phew... installment 3 tomorrow night... can't wait to see what they make of cassie...
 ;D

Thank you so much for these, Sheyne.  They're still hilarious.

I love, "I got your queer case open" -- who in the world is writing these things?  Seriously?  I mean, I could understand if you made a few flubs every now and then... but to be in charge of this and to seemingly not know the language at all.  It's just comedic.

I second the person that said if I ever learn a language... I want it to be just as entertaining when I speak it as this.  :angel:
Otherwise, what's the point?

Post by: Sheyne on April 07, 2006, 10:54:27 am

Okay, here it is.. Was almost afraid to watch all the way through to the end for fear that these Malaysian subtitlers would stamp on our holy ground and truly screw up the lines that mess with our heads and hearts..  And yes, there are some doozies... too many to type for nearly 1am Brisbane, Aust time but I'm devoted to y'all and I'll miss some sleep to bring these to yer.

A digest of some interesting new plot developments.. The gal Ennis Balmore was puttin the blocks to was in fact called Patsy, not Cassie, and our main canoe-man Jack Twist was puttin blocks of his own to a guy called Grandall.  As Alma Jnr revealed in a tension filled scene, her mum and Robin have been awful "strick" on her (as for what happened to Monroe, we can only guess.. hope it has nothing to do with ammonia though or we may have to suspect Ennis's hand in it..)  Other interesting developments is that - contrary to what us fans of the "alternate" version believe - Jack's father "doesn't" know where Brokeback Mountain is - I mean, I always thought he did, but there you go.  And that the Twists have a family PLANT where Jack's ashes are going. Oh! And nobody in this tale is being kept on a short f**king leash. All this time, they were just being kept on a short f**king LIST. Hope this clears up any plot confusion for anybody (I honestly feel like I should be dragging on weed typing this...)

But the other butchered prose goes as follows:

LINE: You're safe. My feet hurt.
SUBTITLE: You see, my feet here hope.

LINE: And with the round up coming, I won't ever be home.
SUBTITLE: I want a round up common, I want everybody home

LINE: I guess I'll head on up to Lightening Flat.
SUBTITLE: I guess I had a bone light and flat.  (Mandy, it is in your capable hands to make something truly filthy out of this... its there, its all there, bones, flats...  >:D)

LINE: After we ship stock..
SUBTITLE: after we shit stuff..

LINE: We can hunt in November, kill us a nice elk...
SUBTITLE: We can hug on November, caress and nice oak.

LINE: This is a goddamn bitch of an unsatisfactory situation.
SUBTITLE: This is a goddamn non-side victory situation.  (how COULD they????)

LINE: Ennis, girls don't fall in love with fun!
SUBTITLE: Ennis doesn't fill and live and fun

LINE: He was cremated, like he wanted.
SUBTITLE: He was cramp at it like he wants it.

LINE: We got a family plot and he's goin in it.
SUBTITLE: Where you get a family plant, he's going at it...     (Hmrrmm, well, we can only wish he's goin at it BEHIND this plant.. and that somebody's filming it for us...  go Jack..)


There you have... The credits roll on Brokeback Through The Looking Glass...

Of course you can, Jude..  hope they get a giggle out of it...  Honestly, some of the lines myself - the caressing nice oak one... oh god, you have just got to hope that some people aren't relying on these subtitles to understand the film because you're going to get some poor viewers walking away and trying to discuss it on a forum somewhere and wanting to know where in the hell in Wyoming Jack was able to get good with using a canoe??  And did Ennis ever have to face judgment over depressing Jack's uncle to death.  And what ever became of Kyle, Gary, Patsy, Grandall and the family plant??  Not to mention who else was on Ennis's short list?? hmmmm

I think there are some interesting developments on the canoe front! I mean in november they can hug and feel up some oak, hey maybe the canoe is made of oak and that is what Ennis is refering to! And he has been asking Jack to show him how to ride the rapids! Oh never mind the actual storyline, this has just got interesting people! :o

Sheyne, as you requested, for the first time ever, I tried the merge function, and now your two threads are one.  What I didn't understand would happen, til after I merged them, is that it melded the threads, sorting all the posts by date, so that the two threads are now mixed into one, all posts in chronological order.  Hope that's okay.  Seems to be, in this particular case.

I also changed the subject line of your first post to reflect the merging - temporarily, of course, til you change it to whatever you want it to be.

I should not have read this thread at work--thought I'd asphyxiate tryin' not to laugh out loud.  ;D

I wonder whether the Malaysian subtitlers have since moved to Philadelphia to do the close-captioning for the local evening news? In several rooms at my gym, they have TVs that are usually tuned to the evening news while I'm working out. The sound is turned off, and the close-captioning is turned on, and some of the bloopers are almost as bad as these from the movie.

Thank you so much for these, Sheyne.  They're still hilarious.

I love, "I got your queer case open" -- who in the world is writing these things?  Seriously?  I mean, I could understand if you made a few flubs every now and then... but to be in charge of this and to seemingly not know the language at all.  It's just comedic.

I second the person that said if I ever learn a language... I want it to be just as entertaining when I speak it as this.  :angel:
Otherwise, what's the point?

I always thought "creel case" was a bit odd. The thing is a creel - a basket with a slot in the top for just-caught fish, that's what a creel is. Or did he never take his creel out of its creel-case....?

I wonder if there's some audio version of Babel Fish they're using, or Dragon Dictate?That would explain it, a little.

But we should be charitable. I bet your Malaysian is a bit rusty, I know mine is.

In honor of more than a year of this wonderful thread, I am going to repost Sheyne's first post here...enjoy, all.



Okay, I've lived long enough to know that ANYTHING can happen.  So although I have no memory of ingesting ANY hallucinogenic or psychotropic substances prior to kicking back and watching my newly-obtained bootleg copy of BBM over the ironing tonight, I have to concede that perhaps it happened.

See I decided to turn the volume waaay down (son in bed asleep didn't really need to be awoken by some hot n heavy 2nd tent scene action) and switch on the subtitles.  Also to see if my copy shed any further light on the c'mere, c'mere / s'alright x 3 debates.  Forgetting, of course, that my copy (which was given to me by a Qld Police Officer no less!  ;D) came from the shores of Malaysia, where its granted they may have some difficulty in their grasp of the English language, not to mention dodgy hearing.

I'm glad I have seen Brokeback and know it by heart, cause otherwise I fear these subtitles may have lead me a tad astray! Check it out:

The lines (so far - haven't even watched the whole film yet) range from the bad:

LINE: Your folks just stop at Ennis? / Del Mar
SUBTITLE: Folks are here? / Balmore

LINE: You pair deuces lookin for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in here pronto..
SUBTITLE: You pay look for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in your pronto

LINE: Thought I'd asphyxiate from the smell
SUBTITLE: Thought I've to fix it from the smear

LINE: ..unless you wanna sit around tyin knots all day..
SUBTITLE: I'll get this one and see around town, that's all

To the WAAAY off-topic and incorrect:

LINE: Beats workin for my old man..
SUBTITLE: he used to work for my old man

LINE: So why didn't we get the powdered milk and the spuds?
SUBTITLE: Yes, why don't we get a pail of milk on the spot?

LINE: What if Aguirre finds out, hunh?
SUBTITLE: What if Gary finds out, huh?  (gary??)  ???

LINE: Spend half the night checkin for damn coyotes..
SUBTITLE: Spent happy nite and checking for damn Kyle  (kyle?!?!!?)  ??? ???

LINE: I am pretty good with a can opener though..
SUBTITLE: I'm am pretty good with a canoe though  (uuhhh.. good)  :-\


To the somewhat prophetic:

LINE: Tomorrow mornin we'll truck you up to the jump off
SUBTITLE: My man will check you out at the jump off  (i'll bet he will... binoculars an all)

LINE: Only thing, don't ever order soup
SUBTITLE: Only thing.. your man will order soup   :-*

LINE: I'm commutin 4 hours a day
SUBTITLE: I can meet you for hours a day  (we wish..  we also wish for it to be filmed..)

LINE: Aguirre's got no right makin me do this.
SUBTITLE: Gay's not rite to make me do this


I'm going to attempt to watch some more tomorrow.. I can't believe I didn't make it to the first reunion kiss!!

I was reminded of this thread by a story on the news last evening about a couple of dogs who have been trained for the war on bootleg DVDs. The dogs have been trained to scent chemicals used in the process of manufacturing the DVDs, so they can be used to sniff out counterfeits.

Yes, interesting story, Jeff.  And apparently the dogs are so successful that a price has been put on their heads by the bootleggers.  Too many sniffs can get you snuffed!  :P

Aw, this is fun.  I can’t believe I missed out on it when it was fresh and new.  I think I saw the thread title, thought it was some weird fanfic, and skipped it.  Belated thanks, Sheyne, for sharing this with us. 

LINE: Your folks just stop at Ennis? / Del Mar
SUBTITLE: Folks are here? / Balmore

I hear that “Balmore” is how natives of the area pronounce “Baltimore.” 

Quote
LINE: You pair deuces lookin for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in here pronto..
SUBTITLE: You pay look for work I suggest you get your scrawny asses in your pronto

I once knew a boy who could get his ass in his pronto.  He was a FREAK! 

Quote
LINE: What if Aguirre finds out, hunh?
SUBTITLE: What if Gary finds out, huh?  (gary??)  ???

Girl, you musta been watching an old episode of “Knots Landing” on Soapnet, not “Brokeback Mountain.”  I liked to have died when Valene was finally reunited with her kidnapped babies. 

Quote
LINE: Spend half the night checkin for damn coyotes..
SUBTITLE: Spent happy nite and checking for damn Kyle  (kyle?!?!!?)  ??? ???

I once saw a personal ad from a guy who listed all the things he liked. . . “music, dancing, and guys named Kyle.”  Come to think of it, there are a lot of cute guys named Kyle out there.  And Todd. 

Quote
LINE: Twist your uncle Harolds in the hospital with pneumonia
SUBTITLE: you uncle is in hospital of ammonia (let this be a lesson to you - cleaning is BAD)

Ole Uncle Harold clearly didn’t read the directions on the back of the bottles, mixed bleach and ammonia, and inhaled the fumes. 

Quote
LINE: For you forgettin to bring that harmonica..
SUBTITLE: you forget to bring me Hallmark

Next line:  When’d you get so uppity that a damn postcard ain’t good enough fer ya? 

Quote
LINE: New model comin in this week, remember?
SUBTITLE: Your mother coming down this week

So, in the Malaysian version of the movie, Lureen and Mrs. Twist did meet each other.  That’s nice. 

Quote
LINE: After we ship stock..
SUBTITLE: after we shit stuff..

Two cowboys, one cup. 

Quote
LINE: I'd like to buy Jimbo here a beer.
SUBTITLE: I'd like to buy Jim O'Neal a beer.  (oh, that clears it up..)

This my show my ignorance, but Who is Jim O'Neal?

Jim O’Neal is Jimbo’s Christian name, dear.  They musta cut out the part where Jack introduces himself, Jimbo introduces himself as “Jimbo,” Jack says, “Your folks just stop at Jimbo?”, and Jimbo says, “O’Neal.”

Jim O'Neal stared at the screen, reading the message one more time before he clicked submit. "SWGM, 28 years old, lives in the city. I like music, dancing, and guys named Kyle..."

He sighed. Was this the right thing to do? Place personal ad in the paper? He'd never done anything like this before, but things had been so rocky with Gary for the past few months. He didn't know what was going on. Jim thought to himself, "I still love him...or at least I think I do...."

I have been so depressed recently,I really had forgotten how good it is just to have a proper belly laugh.as opposed to  a wry grin.

In fact my daughter ran up to her brother when he returned fom a friends house and said 'You'll never guess what, mum was laughing so much before she nearly wet herself"

Ok, this is a bit of an explanation, and off topic, and some people may find certain terms offensive.


Over here in the states we have "waist bags" or "fanny packs".  They look like this.


(http://www.holsterheaven.com/handgun-fanny-pack.jpg)


I have one that I occasionally use, but I wear it slung over my shoulder.  I call it my "fag bag".

I was telling the women at work about it and that I call it my "fag bag" and one of the women said that in Spanish they have that term as well, "Mariconera".

It rolls off the tongue nicely and sounds so much classier than "fag bag", so now I call it my Mariconera.

I don't really know what I expected, but probably something much worse than a waist bag!!   ;D

I never understood the word fanny pack, as if if was carried the other way around.

Ok, this is my theory, and be warned, more potentially offensive verbiage below.

I believe the term "fanny pack" started in England.  On a trip to the UK I was told that over there, they call a woman's "front" her fanny.  Apparently it's an offensive term there, much like the American slang term that starts with "P" and to quote a rap song "is another way to call a cat or kitty."

think "pussy willow".....:laugh:

I always wondered why we called it a "fanny pack" here when it's worn in the front, but over here some people will refer to their rear ends as their "fanny".

This really makes me laugh, but I have a friend out in LA who refers to his bag as his "pussy pouch".

:laugh:

But it was originally meant to be worn on the bottom right? Thats why you guys call it a fanny pack and us a bum bag.

I suspect when they were first invented, they were worn in the back. Then people discovered how easily a skillful thief could open the zipper and steal your wallet, or whatever, especially in a crowd, so they started wearing them in front for security.

Sadly no. :(
The pic is long gone and I didn't save it. I googled before, but can't find it anymore.

On a brighter note, maybe Ennis came by and took it with him. ;)
He really needed his queer case for more fishing trips with Jack. :D

The 'something lost in the translation' works both ways.  One woman was wearing one of those cool t-shirts with Chinese characters on it, just to be pulled aside by her Asian friend and told that her t-shirt said "I f--k dragons."

I want one of those t-shirts.  ;)

I was thinking of this thread a day or two ago.

Something new at my gym is the addition of TV screens mounted on the stationary bicycles and stair climbers and such machines. The sets apparently have the closed captioning permanently turned on so you can watch a program without disturbing other people. Anyway, some of the closed captioning, especially for local news broadcasts, can be as loopily wrong as some of the Malaysian subtitles.

I was riding the bike the other day, and a news program featured an interview with a woman who has just published a book about what happens to food inside us after we eat it. Whoever was doing the closed captioning "in the moment" rendered the phrase alimentary canal as elementary canal.  ;D

I vaguely remember it, it had fish on it, it was a lady's purse, IIRC.

Me three. I already tried to google it some years ago, but to no avail. :-\
I still have a clear image in my mind, I could draw it. If I could draw, that is. It was black, with fishes and sequined and made of wicker and looked like a real creel case, only smaller.

Why, oh why didn't I understand the secrets of photobucket earlier? ::) :laugh:

I guess it's a day late and a dollar short to bump this for Throwback Thursday, but this is still the best thread ever.

Whoever did these subtitles must have been doing them as the movie ran--like the people who do the "close captioning" for the TV news. Some of those news captions are as hilarious as these subtitles.

I wonder how Gary, Kyle, and Jim O'Neal are doing?  8)

These Malaysian subtitles are as funny today as they were 11 years ago.

On the other hand, when you read through the thread, it's kind of sad to see the screen names of all the folks who have left us (and moved on with their lives?).

I've always assumed they were created by someone for whom English is not the first language, who was typing these things as the movie was playing.

I've seen goofs that must have been made that way in closed captioning for hearing-impaired people, but never anything as bad as these movie subtitles.
