An Open Letter to Everyone Who Makes That Hand-Heart Symbol on a Regular Basis

To Whom It May Concern:

I am requesting that you cease and desist this smarmy form of communication.

Failure to immediately discontinue this cloying behavior will result in me quitting my job and uprooting my life so that I may wander the Earth, breaking the fingers of all who refuse to comply with this request.

I'm Not Kidding

Yesterday, I saw a post where there was a picture of the blogger and her boyfriend doing that. If my guy ever suggested we do that, I'd suggest that he start wearing panties.

That Janie Girl said...

What? You don't like the heart symbol, known the world over?

You made me laugh, then So. Cal. Gal's comment was the icing on the cake!

The wife and I tried to make that symbol once. Due to the vast differences in our hand sizes, you wouldn't know what the heck we were doing.

Which made it funny.

At least people aren't throwing "the shocker" |_|| anymore.

When you start planning your Trail of Broken Fingers Tour, please let me know. I have a few cities I'd like you to visit, and the photographic proof, just in case.

Also, regarding Scope's comment, if you Google "The Shocker" the first image that comes up is Chuck Norris.

haaaaa Trail of Broken Fingers Tour...

i hated it a lot more until Melanie on SYTYCD started using it all the time, because it seems i'm incapable of not loving everything she does.

First rule of the internet is, "Anything worth doing is worth doing until it makes you want to kill them with a spork".

OK, maybe I made that rule up.

words...words...words... said...

Not only do I approve, I will bestow a grant on the tour.

The only way that hand-heart symbol should be allowed is if the perpetrators made the shape of an actual heart - ventricles and all.

How do you feel about the next up and coming fad, the hand-kidney symbol?

The Vegetable Assassin said...

Oh my fucking God of fuck, pardon my fucking French. THIS. They need to be impaled on something hot and sharp right now along with all those people who still use "SQUEE" to convey excitement and anyone who uses "air quotes" or says "axe" instead of "ask". That is all.

Logical Libby said...

I heart you. But not with my fucking hands.

Cora said...

But I can still make the Depeche Mode alien face with my hands to convey my Depeche Mode-iosity though, right?


Cora said...

Whoa. Did Veggie just threaten to impale me for saying "squeee" in my blog posts?


*hiding under my bed*

dmarks said...

At least it isn't the shape of an elf

Billy said...

Whoa whoa whoa. Don't make me stop using The Shocker as a hand gesture. You can have that heart, but you'll never take The Shocker!!!

gweenbrick said...

Awesome! That is one of the worse symbols ever, up there with the "air camera click" Very funny


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
