Made You Look

For today’s stupid news. A few weeks ago State Rep. Mandy Powers Norrell, a Lancaster Democrat, accused West Point and Annapolis cadets of racist hand gestures.

Well guess what? The Service Academies investigated and found out it was, drum roll please, the circle game. Come on I was doing this in the nineties in the Air Force. Rules are ” The objective of the “circle game” or “basic killer” [1][2] is to form a circle with one’s thumb and forefinger (the “OK” gesture) on the leg below the waist and get someone else to look at it.[2] If the person looks, the gesture-maker gets to hit them,[1] or is simply considered “out” or “killed”.[2] In some variations the target can put their index finger through the hole without looking at it and thereby win the right to punch the maker of the gesture ” Gained widespread use when featured on a Malcolm in the Middle episode.

Unreal. Now they say the OK sign is a hate symbol. Hey proclaimers of the offended. Just because you say something doesn’t make it true. No you can’t have this, it’s not yours. Nobody ere gave it to you. I’m currently using it, go wank off.

Let me know what you think. The comments and pictures are all in fun. No sense of humor? Too bad.
