I've been thinking about this ever since. And this morning, I Googled "geek hand signs." And all I found was this:
Don't get me wrong. This is cool and all, but I think it's totally unfair that computer geeks get gang signs (and a t-shirt!) and the rest of us geeks are totally unrepresented.
But then I thought, "Hey, maybe all is not lost. Maybe there ARE other signs, and my Google-Fu is to blame." So I Googled "zombie hand signs."
Then I figured maybe I should go for something a little more mainstream. Vampires have got to have some good hand signs, right? And I got this.
Disclaimer: I know this is a Vampire Hunter D reference. I have not lost any Geek Credits in the writing of this blog.
I should also mention that when I Googled "vampire hand signs," I got a picture of the pope.
And then when I Googled "merpire hand signs"? I got THIS.
It's true. You can try it yourself. And I'm speechless.
