Fun With Captions

It's probably no shock to readers of this blog that I am a huge fan of the show Justified on F/X. I'll record a show and then watch the bits that I like a few times.

In the episode "Outlaw", Wynn Duffy informs Boyd Crowder that a hitman has been sent by a mobster from Detroit:
"Theo's got a guy on the way down who has apparently killed more people than malaria."
So I'm watching it, the phone rings, and I hit the mute button instead of the pause button. And this caption popped up:
THEO'S GOT A GUY ON THE WAY DOWN WHO HAS APPARENTLY KILLED MORE PEOPLE THAN MARIA.
I'm imagining a few thousand deaf folks reading that and wondering who the fuck this Maria is and how many people has she killed.

This Maria?



Or this one?

Cute. My dogs name is Maria and sometimes when I am calling her I think of this song but couldn't remember the words.
"They call the dog Maria"
