I Think I’m Offended…

So I’m watching American Pickers on the Hitler History Channel, and they’re visiting an older gentleman in my home state of Tennessee. That’s fine, but I’m a little galled that they found it necessary to subtitle him. Hell, he’s probably kin.

    I think subtitling is a bit much, given the Closed Caption option on televisions. I’m not a normal CC user, but I generally turn it on anytime I watch an episode of ‘COPS’. While I am fluent in ‘White-trash’, I have trouble with the drunk version of the dialect, and the CC helps a lot.
