Mad Dog Minute now offering sign language for the legally stupid


We’re learning lately that it’s possible to get more out of Chris Russo’s Mad Dog Minute on MSNBC simply by watching it without sound rather than listening to the accompanying words that go along with his animated gestures.

There are several different things that could be going on here, and to play it this way makes it much more of an adventure.  Here are some ideas:

– He’s explaining his side of a traumatizing encounter with a police officer

– He’s just trying to show us his version of "the move"

– He’s seeing one of his own sex tapes for the first time

– This is the strip of pictures he got from the photo booth at Golf N’ Stuff last weekend

– He’s discussing in great detail one of his intensely boring tennis matches

– This is what he does every time he watches the scene where Elliot’s bicycle leaves the ground with E.T.

– He’s going through all the faces he makes when Francesa opts for the 35 cent wing special

– He’s putting forth a very confusing effort in trying to spell out "Ass Man" with his hands

– He’s showing all the possible ways he might react when approached about his Alf hair wisp

– This is the range of emotions he displayed to producers after catching wind of the "Sneakin’ Nuggets" post

– He’s foolishly trying to give sign language to a blind person
