Presidential Shocker

Submitted by: fancylad 8 years ago Funny

I wonder if they know what the more common meaning of that hand sign means.

"The shocker should not be confused with similar looking hand gestures such as "The Pitchfork," (pictured above) a Hand signal used at Arizona State University, (notice the spacing between the Index and Middle Finger).[1]"

Just to clear up any remaining confusion.

When I came in here, I thought a president had done something "shocking".
Ahh, mis-communication.

"that is actually a way of saying west side patented by snoop dogg"

I love how people just state things as fact, when actually they couldn`t be more wrong. The sign being thrown by Snoop Dogg is a sign for the 2-1-3 click. 2-1-3 being the area code for L.A., California. CHECK YOUR FACTS BEFORE SAYING THEM FATEX, OR AT LEAST LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT YOU COULD BE WRONG!

"he single handedly turned this great country into a laughing stock in the eyes of the rest of the world"

For a guy as "dumb" as people say he is... sounds like the work of a genius to me. I mean, that is... if he "single handedly" turned our entire Nation into a "laughing stock".

Personally I think people need to quit blaming one man. Bush did just as many great and not so great things with our Country as any other President. I think too many people tend to hop on the Hate-wagon without knowing why or for what reason they are hating. I also think a lot of people will be eating their words 8 years from now.

"Really? How so? Tell us all how the Bush administration did something "bad" to this country that is somehow worse most than other administrations. You lack perspective. "

"It`s NOT the shocker, the main feature of the shocker is the first two fingers have to be TOGETHER. Next time your bf tries to stick two fingers spread that far apart up you, you might get the difference. This is CLEARLY not the shocker."

LOL! :-D Thanks for making my night Lion!

It`s the shocker. What other "variation" is attempted here is meaningless in its lame rhetoric because the signals are exactly the same. Ring finger down is the shocker. It`s co-opted. Now let`s all move on with our lives and laugh at president Bush yet again.

From Wikipedia:

" * Arizona State University students also use a variation of the shocker but with the index and middle fingers spaced apart to resemble a pitchfork, a reference to the Arizona State Sun Devils. [4] United States President George W. Bush made the gesture with Arizona State`s track and field team.[5]"

It`s close enough! I think pretty much everyone who sees this would know that they aren`t "doing the shocker" but it`s at least a decent enough proxy, and from W himself, to be pretty funny. Enjoy the pop-culture cross-over.

Thats obviously not the shocker, but front row, far left is pretty close to it...lol.

As I always say for awesome stuff....

GOD BLESS AMERICA....
Because we live in a land where people would even consider that the president would do something like this.

i think its a W. Damn you all are dumb. Nonetheless, it is probably Bush`s way of giving the finger to America. HEHE, EVIL DOERS!

Other people have already pointed out that it isn`t the shocker, but the `pitchfork`...

Oh my god, you people are the largest collection of morons I have ever seen. Do you even know what the "shocker" looks like? it certainly doesn`t look like what everyone in this picture is doing. What next? A picture of them giving the "We`re #1" sign and all you idiots screaming like monkeys- OOH THEYRE GIVING THE FINGER OOOOH

HA! This is awesome. As much as I hate W, I gotta say it.

What a way to leave office. The Shocker. OUTSTANDING! Probably the coolest thing he`s done in 8 years, even if he doesn`t know what that gesture actually means. (And I`m aware of the ASU sign, but I prefer to believe they`re all making a W, for George W. Still an outstanding photo for the end of days.)

Not "proof" exactly, but this site does make the reasonable point that "everyone (well, almost everyone) in the picture has their index and middle finger spaced apart, which makes the gesture `the pitchfork,` which is the sign of the ASU Sun Devils."

Shopped? I doubt it. They just don`t have the street smarts to know what that is. I even had to look it up because that`s how lame I am.
