Gang Sign of the Times

September 3, 2009 at 1:04 am (By Amba)

I mentioned that I worked out with Icepick the salutation for the times:  “Glad to hear things could be worse!”

Ron then said, “We need a gang sign, too.”

So now we have one.  Icepick:

I see Ron wants a gang sign to go with the salutation. I suggest an outstretched middle finger pointed at ones own temple, shorthand for “Still fucked.”

    I admit to a fondness for a hand with just the little finger outstretched: “When you don’t care enough to send the very best.”

  2. Ron said,

    If we raise the thumb in the “cocked gun” position with the middle finger next to the temple, that means we doubly fucked and left for dead….

    gang signs: Not just for lifers anymore!

    wj, that made me HOWL.

    Ron, that’s easier said than done. Try it!

    Some time ago (before the current economic troubles) Amba and I dialogged on Ambivablog about the appropriate name for this decade, ala the “Fabulous Fifties,” the “Soaring Sixties,” or the “Me Decade.” She liked the “Oh Ohs,” if i remember correctly. It seems more apt now than ever.

    You remember correctly.

    Should have been the “Oh shits!”
