Comedians and talk show hosts had a field day after the massive, apocalyptic blizzard forecast to slam NYC, Philadelphia and the New Jersey shore never really materialized.

Leading up to the blizzard, many mayors and a few governors in the threatened region held press conferences to warn people about the approaching storm.

At each of these press events, a sign language interpreter was conspicuously placed to the left or right of the platform, drawing considerable attention.

This writer noticed the animated nature of some of the interpreters and tweeted about it on Monday night.

Comedy Central star Jon Stewart also spotted the over-the-top sign language interpretations happening from city to city and dedicated a slice of his opening monologue to it.
