Socializing Hand Gestures:
For Anthropological Recognition of Familiar Group Members
order to promote cohesion in the ranks, we advocate bonding
through shared experiences. Just as everyone is familiar
with the "Westside" and "Eastside"
symbols employed by L.A. and New York citizens, so too

Tuck in your opposable thumb. Extend your index
finger and pinky! You've done it! Look fierce and
Use this only with fellow Canadians! Many will notice
the symbol is based not only on the "N"

of our soldiers while doing push-ups. No namby-pambies
in our organization!
#2: For outsiders

Use only with those you intend to insult. The powerful
disrespect of the gesture should be utilized only
Note: Careful kids! Not to be confused with Spiderman's
web-spinning gesture. Bend your hand too far back,
making your wrist prominent and you've ruined the
big diss - making yourself look silly!
