Crap Captions: ‘Dimi Berbaton’ Is 195lbs, Has Brown Hair And A Swastika?

Massachusetts Channel 5 News very nearly got their caption right (a damn sight closer than ESPN managed the other day) for Berba’s post-game interview, bless their little hearts for trying…

We can’t help but notice that they’ve also spelt ‘swastika’ wrong. Nearly chaps, nearly.

    Making him look like Megatron lol, silly americans

  2. Anon says:

    Amber Alerts are alerts put out on Freeways and TV stations when a child has been abducted with the make and model of the car and any description of the abductor.

    Nil points for Berbaton and SWATstika mind you.

  3. Dave says:

    my god, fucking americans, they really are the stupidest bunch of mugs on the planet

  4. fafaf says:

    Chris, I’m guessing that you do get that the caption has nothing to do with Berbatov, but posters like Dave seem to miss the point. As Anon says it’s a police warning that is unrelated and this is just a bit of unfortunate timing.

  5. Red Devilish says:

    The guy with brown hair and swastika tattoo is the subject of the amber alert, in other words a child has been abducted by this person. Noting to do with the Berba story, news tickers at the bottom of the screen are common on US news. Someone here is a stupid,fucking mug but it’s not the americans.

    Looks like Dave is a stupid fucking limey cunt.

    Thanks for pointing that out for Chris guys. We dont have scrolling unrelated news tickers at the bottom of our simpleton European news coverage. And swastika tattoo’s on footballers are very popular nowadays.

  8. Chris says:

    @Red Devilish & Bully: C’mon guys, give my cerebral faculties a little credit here. ‘Tis but a joke, try and get your heads around it.

  9. Red Devilish says:

    Wasn’t for you Chris. For the non-American stupid mugs posting. (that’s you Dave)

  10. bullybully says:

    was being sarcastic

  11. Chris says:

    Okay, snarky rebuttal withdrawn. Kiss and make up?

  12. Montesquieu says:

    Stop the bickering, your geographic position has nothing to do with how stupid everyone is. The Brits might have better accents than the Americans, but they’re just as ignorant of the customs and culture of other countries and members of the European Union they are a part of. Ignorance, arrogance and stupidity is not just an American trait.

  13. Montesquieu says:

    It’s the human condition in other words.

  14. healtheworld says:

    If Michael Jackson were still alive there wouldn’t be any of this bickering *sob*

  15. Montesquieu says:

    Yes, but more innocent children would now be suffering from mental distress.

  16. me says:

    americans could give two shit covered bollocks about berbie and who can blame them

    Boy, am I not surprised your ignorant and arrogant Non-American people are bashing Americans over this little thing!! Before you start calling Americans stupid for apparently labeling Dimitar Berbatov “195lbs, has brown hair, and a swastika,” maybe you should do some research. The caption has NOTHING to do with him. It is an Amber Alert, ALERTING the American public that a child/children has been abducted by a person fitting that description. You ignorant fools are always quick to judge and ridicule Americans, but look at yourselves before you start your name calling.
