The BBC's automated closed-captioning feed had a rather epic fail last weekend during a report about the Chinese New Year, when subtitles accidentally referred to the current year of the horse as "the year of the whores."

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! Looks like it's going to be a saucy one...
