    No better or worse than the "Jaywalkers." I'd be more inclined to
    think it's funny if the person doing the captions could spell.

    Amazing!

    Of course, they did not show any correct answers.

    Maybe we should chuck our educational system. I think this video should be
    shown at all Teachers Union Meetings.

    Shame on those people and their educators.

    These answers collectively are the result of a generation currently
    getting all their "education," current events and news information
    from video and audio sources, and texting.

    remember that one ....)

    Speaking of reading comprehension problems, a quote from the web page:

    "A (fake) report by the parody TV show CNNNN"

    I'd be happy to look up any of those words that are too difficult for
    you.

    I thought the video was pretty funny.

    Not necessary to explain. I do know what a parody TV show is as well as
    good editing.

    I also have a pretty good ideal why the Denney's and other Menus are
    becoming PICTOGRAPHS.

    Just in case you have trouble googling the proper terms

    Rates of literacy in the United States depend on which of the various
    definitions of literacy is used. Governments may label individuals who can
    read a couple of thousand simple words they learned by sight in the first
    four grades in school as literate; but the most comprehensive study of U.S.
    adult literacy ever commissioned by the U.S. government argues that such
    adults are functionally illiterate--they cannot read well enough to hold a
    good job.[1] A study by the Jenkins Group has shown that millions of
    Americans never read another book after leaving school.[2][3] A five-year,
    $14 million study of U.S. adult literacy involving lengthy interviews of
    U.S. adults, the most comprehensive study of literacy ever commissioned by
    the U.S. government,[1] was released in September 1993. It involved lengthy
    interviews of over 26,700 adults statistically balanced for age, gender,
    ethnicity, education level, and location (urban, suburban, or rural) in
    twelve states across the U.S. and was designed to represent the U.S.
    population as a whole. This government study showed that 21% to 23% of adult
    Americans were not "able to locate information in text", could not "make
    low-level inferences using printed materials", and were unable to "integrate
    easily identifiable pieces of information."[1]


    The study detailed the percentages of U.S. adults who worked full-time,
    part-time, were unemployed, or who had given up looking for a job and were
    no longer in the work force. The study also reported the average hourly
    wages for those who were employed. These data were grouped by literacy
    level--how well the interviewees responded to material written in
    English--and indicated that 40 to 44 million of the 191 million U.S. adults
    (21 to 23 percent of them) in the least literate group earned a yearly
    average of $2105 and about 50 million adults (25 to 28 percent of them) in
    the next-least literate of the five literacy groups earned a yearly average
    of $5225 at a time when the U.S. Census Bureau considered the poverty level
    threshold for an individual to be $7363 per year.[4]


    A follow-up study by the same group of researchers using a smaller database
    (19,714 interviewees) was released in 2006 that showed no statistically
    significant improvement in U.S. adult literacy.[5] These studies assert that
    46 to 51 percent of U.S. adults read so poorly that they earn significantly
    below the threshold poverty level for an individual.

    I'm sure we all know what a parody is ... my point was, it would have
    been better served by having some semblance of literacy in the
    captions.

    For what it's worth: I commute to New York City everyday. In Penn Station is
    a McDonalds-with pictographs. You cannot order a meal without pointing to a
    picture. If you speak what you want, you are answered with "QUE?", and they
    point to the pictograph.
    You have to point to a picture of the meal-G## help you if you don't-it's
    potluck then.

    I'm assuming (without any certain knowledge) that the spelling errors
    were all intentional. This was a well-known national (and not the US,
    Australia) tv show.
