I saw Madagascar this weekend. In it, there are two monkeys: one who signs, and the other who translates those signs. My ASL is extremely rusty, but due to the wonders of computer animation, the signing monkey uses textbook-clear signs, so I caught bits and pieces (I'm normally lost watching native signers, who aren't nearly as worried about precision as Dreamworks' animators were). I'm such a geek that at one point while the talker was translating, I had to stop myself from pointing out that he was translating words the signing monkey hadn't even used yet.

A movie about black ops penguins and the lasting friendship of a talking lion and zebra, and I get flumoxed by predictive translation of proper nouns. Why yes, I am a geek. ;)
