Hippie Sign Language

Hippies at the Occupy Wall Street protest (in Portland) have created a new sign language to communicate with each other:

..

How the guy kept a straight face through explaining the difference between Twinkles and Down-Twinkles is amazing. Oh, wait, he wasn’t kidding?

There is an obvious and appropriate response to this nonsense, which the lovely Angeline Jolie is happy to demonstrate:

take that, hippies

  1. I can’t figure out why you’re calling this guy a “hippie”. Hippies have a certain lingo, like “Far out, man”, yet this young man sounded as articulate as anyone else.

    I presume you’re not referring to the fact that he’s at a protest, or all Tea Partiers would, according to you, be “hippies”.

    I also have to presume it’s not his long hair, or Mozart and Steven Seagal and Hulk Hogan and a lot of other people would be “hippies” as well.

    Maybe if you started making sense you’d be getting more than the three or four comments I see every time I drop by. As it is now, you’re just coming off as some kook groping for a whipping boy, scapegoat or boogeyman — and making a really bad choice in the process.

  3. Perhaps i can help, Dr. Douchewhistle.

    He’s a hippie because of his participation in the Occupy Our Rectum movement. He is a hippie because he represents people who want a western standard of living and all the cool stuff that entails, but do not wish to work to achieve them, instead wanting to ride the coattails of the successful, the industrious, those who risk to achieve, all the while cussing at the evil capitalist for ‘taking’ what is being freely given to him by those who wish to buy his products or services.

    Hope that clears things up for you; but somehow, I doubt it.

  5. No wonder they need hand signals – he said “The first of these is twinkles – this is used to signify agreeance with something.

    I note Dr. Mercury seems to think “this young man sounded as articulate as anyone else”.

  7. Doc,
    Thanks for commenting, I hadn’t realized I’d fallen behind in the all-important comment count. Your contribution is much appreciated, I can only hope that it’s enough to propel this backwater blog into an LGF-type comment frenzy. Or something.

    To answer your question, I like to call lefties with rambling incoherent messages and those of the eco persuasion ‘hippies’. It’s a label readers here are familiar with, so I stick with it. Mostly I continue to use the anachronistic term because it annoys lefties.

    You’re welcome.

  9. He’s a hippie, Dr. Mercury, because he’s associated himself with a far-Left Dirty Socialist movement that’s doing little more than inviting mass Marxist ideology to this little Republic. That he can do so with a smile and no obvious outward flaws in appearance is a credit to the assholes who’ve educated him; like you, if you’ve a PhD and teach some some ‘ethnic studies’ nonsense that’ll never be marketable.

    You, if you are one of those radical profs, and he, since he is taking a route that will never give him anything more than a dead-end leftist life featuring needy neediness and reliance on Nanny Statism, should take your disagreeable selves to a country that’s already far-Left and try to fit in there. You are becoming less and less welcome here, I’m afraid.
