Question Of The Day: What's Your Favorite Bro/Ho Gesture?

by EVAN MULVIHILL · August 5, 2009

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then at least 10 of those words come from your hand gestures. Seeing as you have 5 fingers on each hand, right? Anyway, the question today is what your favorite hand gesture from party pics of bros and their female counterparts. We're gonna categorize some of them for you so you don't have to think so hard. At left is the ubiquitious "ROCK ON" gesture. It symbolizes essentially that you are a bad-ass, but it's also sort of unoriginal way of expressing yourself. It gets the job done, yeah, but just don't overuse it, ladies.

Next, there's the "I'm pointing at nothing!" pose. When executed correctly, it creates a nice "V" shape that makes it almost undeniable that you're having lots of fun. The danger is that your armpits are dangerously exposed, which could reveal unattractive pit stains for bros or poor shaving habits for hoes.

The "Peace, Bitches" sign indicates that you're kind of a gangster. It's particularly powerful when coupled with a hardened facial expression, as the bro above shows. But without the gangster face, it could be taken to mean "Sayonara, suckers," "two more drinks please!" or "peace and love, brother." The first two are clearly acceptable, but the latter is clearly not. Do you really want to run the risk of being mistaken for dirty hippie-dippy pacifist?

Lastly, there's the ambiguous fingers exhibited by this young lady at left. It shows that she is either (a) too drunk to form a coherent hand gestures or (b) not having a good time. And nobody likes a party pooper. She could take some cues from her friend on the right, who has the "Peace, Bitches" gesture down.

So what's your fave? Tell us in the comments!
