From more than a few people who sent this marvelous link:

You want link? You can has link.

According to the description, this is a college-level ASL class final, and the girl in the video, Anna, is not hearing impaired, though apparently she is VERY fluent in all the right ways! May your weekend be full of clever people who are able to communicate in fun and funky ways.

    I love this! I started to learn ASL a while back and then I quit. I’m going back, I want to be able to do that. She gets an A+ from me!

    Amazing! SO much better than “Wind Beneath My Wings” and the usual stuff people are asked to sign.

    I hope she got an A.

    There are a ton of ASL songs on youtube – my favorite interpreter is kmklined (http://www.youtube.com/user/kmklined) – everything she does is awesome.

    When I took ASL it was nowhere near that fun. Probably because the classes were at church.

    This absolutely made my day. I had to tell a story in my senior ASL final. The Three Little Pigs. It was nowhere near as entertaining.

    Ahhh.. memories. I did some schmaltzy Kenny Loggins song for my final, but one of my classmates chose a Bette Midler filled with double entendre about getting drilled by the dentist. Definitely the difference between a B and an A.
    And then there was my first ASL teacher who started the first class with all the bad words so we could “get it out of our systems”.  Her day job was in a hospital kitchen. She new A LOT of bad words.

    Thanks. My morning turned rotten for a while, was reprieved (when someone calls you from home to say they discovered mold in a closet, ALWAYS have them send a photo to your phone to so you can explain that what they saw was really old carpet backing), and then I watched this to top it off. My afternoon is going to be a breeze.

    I saw that a few weeks ago.  Could not stop laughing.  Best final ever.

    Jennifer Armintrout says:

    I would never be able to sign and mouth the words.  I envy people who can do a 50/50 ASL/English split, LOL.  Grammar correct and everything, dang.

    Since we’re all sharing… I did Cake’s cover of ‘Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps’ and added a hand tango during the instrumental.

    I can’t stop smiling!  Or singing it!  Which s a little awkward now that DD is home from school ;)

    @Christina – sounds awesome, got video?

    I only took one semester of ASL and my hands were so wild the teacher said it was like I was really angry all the time.  *sigh*

    @Melanie—thanks for the link to kmklined on YouTube. Just watched her Grenade by Bruno Mars…. OMG. Breathtaking!

    So this is why the ASL classes at my university were always full before I could sign up!

    I had to settle for Spanish as my language instead, and it wasn’t nearly as entertaining

    The first thing my husband asked: “How many marriage proposals do you think she got after that performance?!”

    We loved it!

    I love it.  Now a whole new way to tell some to F*** off.  :)
    Thanks for sharing that.  A+ from me!

    I want to go to all y’all’s colleges. Mine has: French or Spanish. That’s it. It’s a relatively new college (opened about 4 years ago). I wanna learn sign language. Mostly because I have a near deaf godmother and it’d be nice to communicate over the 50+ volume TV.

    Carmie says:
