Do you think the President and all the other people in the following photo have a clue what that hand gesture they’re making actually means?

That’s off of the official White House homepage. For those of you who don’t know yourselves, that’s known as the Shocker and it has sexual connotations. It’s often accompanied by the phrase “two in the pink, one in the stink” which should give you a pretty good idea of exactly what sexual connotation it holds. If you still don’t get it then go read the Wikipedia entry for it.

Maybe they think it’s supposed to be a W or maybe they just thought it was funny to do a “gangsta” sign. I don’t think they realize what it actually symbolizes. Or maybe they do and that’s part of why they’re doing it. It’s the sort of naughty thing I’d probably do if I were a lame duck president counting down the hours till I get booted out of office.

  1. Not to be a party-pooper, but according to various folks over at Boing-Boing, “it’s actually the Arizona State “pitchfork”.

  2. Or possibly the Whitehouse has been a lot more fun than we’ve been led to believe.

    Or the interns still thought ‘helping’ the President was still part of the job description.

    Or we’ve found the real reason for the infamous Bush ‘naps’.

  3. If Dubya wanted a hand gesture metaphor to represent his accomplishments, it should be one with all fingers in the stink.

    Just the standard middle finger would suffice for his presidency.  It’s simple and says all that needs to be said.

  4. I always wondered with the Bush Administration if someone was just laughing his ass off in the background with all the hypocrisy and irony in speeches and events like these. I guess maybe I just don’t want to believe we voted in a president this stupid.

  5. Who is “we”?, I never voted for the asshole and I never considered him to be my president.

  6. Who is “we”?, I never voted for the asshole and I never considered him to be my president.

    Exactly why we need to move to a parliamentary form of government, instead of ‘Winner Take All’.  Even large minorities are virtually unrepresented in our present form.

  7. Moloch,

    But it’s the current administration giving the sign, not our president-elect..  so what is your point?

  8. Its the influence of the “change” he is going to bring. The government is already trying to act like a bunch of negros.

  9. But it’s the current administration giving the sign, not our president-elect..  so what is your point?

    Moloch’s point is getting a response from you. The content of his comments is incidential, though with the usual slant.

  10. This is going to be a GREAT eight years.  I will think with pleasure of Moloch eating his own diseased liver the whole time.

  11. According to one CON website the resistence has already began.  You’ve got to be prepared, take your eye off these liberals for one moment you’ll have had an abortion and be a gay before you have a chance to pray.
