The closed captioning feature has been subject to numerous parodies prior to the emergence of the single topic blog, beginning with a photoshopping thread submitted to FARK  on November 7th, 2006. Fuck Yeah Subtitles  , a Tumblr blog dedicated to humorous subtitles but not limited to those of sounds, was launched in September 2009. Additional instances of comically closed captioned photos, which may have occurred as a result of errors during real-time captioning or mistranslation from another language, have appeared on humor sites including Smosh  , Uproxx  , World Wide Interweb  and the Chive  between December 2011 and September 2012.
You don't have to accept this conclusion yourself to see that the choice of language involves deep questions of who we are and how we envision our relationship with society at large. For that reason, pronouncements about language can provoke strong reactions. When someone tells us that the way we use or understand language is inadequate, it's only natural to bristle. A challenge to our language can be tantamount to a challenge to our inner selves. So when disagreements arise over how we use language, the emotional stakes are higher. Over the years, we have developed a strong intuitive sense of what language is. Most of us probably find ourselves much more detached from questions such as, "How did the universe begin?" or "What happens if you travel at the speed of light?" If our assumptions about physics are wrong, we don't take it personally.
