Bush Hand Gesture Furrows International Brows
President George W. Bush shot an unusual hand gesture to the crowd during yesterday's inauguration ceremonies, and now the Associated Press
says the international community is abuzz with speculation.
So what's this all about? Bush acknowledged the University of Texas Longhorns' marching band with the school's customary "horn" symbol (pinky up, index finger up, ring and middle fingers tucked beneath the thumb). Unfortunately, this same gesture also represents another "horned" beast -- the Devil. Whoops.
As international dust-ups go, the "horny hand affair" doesn't add up to much. Nonetheless, expect to soon see this image on a full line of t-shirts and bumper stickers. -- Mac
