Curly , that was some funny shit !
If I'm not mistaken, both the "bullshit" and the "I love you" meanings derive from American Sign Language, but the b.s. sign involves the other hand positioned behind the "horns," flicking the fingers in a manner that suggests dropping something on the ground . . .
"I love you" is turned ninety degrees so the little finger is pointing at "you" and the thumb is pointing at "me."
Bottom line is: They are diggin' yer ride:
That backround music scared me, I'm sleepin with the light on tonight!
Here's an older one for you......."peachy keen"
What really gets me is the kids that say "like" in every sentence.
See the post "OT We got a lot of snow today."
It's a salute to punch press operators of days gone by
Used by candy-assed wannabes who want others to think they're tough and evil. No such thing as evil, the devil, Lucifer, Satan as a figure head, etc. Anyone who cares to look it up will no doubt figure out how those characters came to pass. I agree with the "I'm a fuckin idiot with no original thought" description.
And yes, like, I, like, hate when kids, like, can't tell, like, a story without, like, using the word like. It's like, well, like really dumb, like, ya know?
And another one is when people describe a conversation with "...so he goes 'yeah right', and like I go ' yeah for real!' ". Like listening to a bunch of kids on a short bus.
Did you ever notice when you tighten up on your vocabulary and sentence structure how intimidated people seem to be? Sure makes it hard to communicate at times. I guess I'll stick with old hand gesture in my avatar
Jessie James does it all the time.
I do too sometimes and I'm 48.
I don't think it is hurting anyone
Not any older than DIRT!
Nice to see you at the Hot Rod A Rama. We finished our summer tour by attending the Hot Rod Reunion at Famoso.
Oh! When I was a kid, a mere 60 plus years ago it meant to double screw ya!
The thing that annoys me is saying, "You know what I'm saying?" all the time. You should see the look I get when I reply, "Uh, no, What are you saying?" You know what I'm saying?
Right on, Oilcan!!! You know what I'm sayin'? WTF?
Who's da maaaaaaaan...?
You da maaaaaan...!
OH... I'm so wasted!!!
Rock out with your cock out!!!
This is seriously some John Stewart in the movie 'Half Baked' sh#t here-I love it.
In Texas, it's "hookem Horns"
I Think it means you don't have arthiritous yet. I pull my two middle fingers down and the others follow.
Its also the gang sign for "MS 13".
Watch out for those guys....they're bad news.
you'd think the Feds learned their lesson when they deported Lucky Luciano way back when.
Arthiritous, shit, I've never been able to do that... dunno why. I think my last 2 fingers are connected somehow.
"Super!!!" or maye older, "Thats real George!!!"
Hmmm, dunno about the second one these days
There was a time...
...when men with big arms, and big families, would leave for work in the morning for some big factory or some big railroad...
...and when they came home and found out some punks were upsetting the quiet in their town... not their "neighborhood" or their "turf"... but going against all the good that the town stood for and the wishes of the peaceful people of that town...
...they'd crack a brew, call all the other big-armed men in town...
...and it would stop...
You can fear 'em or you can fuck 'em up.
Maybe traditions shouldn't all center around Christmas and cars...
You guys are just TOO macho for me.
It's Italian for good luck/ward off evil spirits.
I'm just sayin'... if Ward Cleaver and Mr. Mondello would have got together and kicked the living pissbag out of Eddie Haskell... this country would be alot better off...
Separate names with a comma.
