"All of these balls to prove this is good, I'm sorry..."
Unless one may have been living under a rock high in the Himalayas, the entire civilized world is still abuzz over an admitted violent schizophrenic who fooled the South African government, the US Secret Service and the entire world as he fraudulently posed as the official sign language interpreter at the recent Nelson Mandela memorial as reported by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer on Dec.12, 2013.
Looking like one of the backup dancers on Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 Tour, initially able to pass random hand and arm gyrations as actual sign language, Thamsanqa Jantjie stood within literal arm's reach of numerous world leaders, to include Barack Obama.
In the meantime, late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel invited American Sign Language expert Justin Maurer to hopefully translate Jantjie's falderal.
As Maurer verified, "I’m not fluent in South African Sign Language (SASL), but it was proven by a number of sign language experts that the man interpreting at Nelson Mandela’s funeral wasn’t using SASL, Afrikaans, a tribal dialect, International Sign, or ASL."
As seen on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Maurer breaks down the faux-sign:
I support basic salutations here, salutations.

All of these balls to prove this is good, I'm sorry.
