"Re: Your Brains" in ASL

Wonderful version.

Link thanks to browngirl.

For more horror and business, see Resume with Monsters, in which Lovecraftian monsters aren't as scary as a bad job.

I was going to ask "Whatever happened to William Browning Spencer?", a mildly amusing thing to ask about a horror writer, but it turns out he's been writing quite a bit I hadn't heard about.

Watching my zombie-loving nine-year-old son watch this is almost as amusing as the video itself.

Thanks for the video link, I will share that with my kids. Isn't sign language expressive?

this is really wonderful. It makes me wonder, though, just how much of the lyric is preserved in ASL: I see a threatening eating gesture but I'm not sure where the brains are indicated... which, because it's late and I'm a pedantic pain, makes me think of Arabic, which can also be really thin on specificity and context-reliant.

I should lighten up... but now I'm all curious about the ASL lexicon.

Why should you lighten up? You got the fun out of the video, and now you're on to a different sort of pleasure of thinking about languages.
