Now we do. :D
Saw him last night at the Blender at Gramercy in NYC, and it was truly life-changing. Thought you guys might appreciate a shout-out from Mr. S. himself.

That's cool! We'll start our own UU gang in the Caribbean, and use that as our sign!

Uh.....The double U is normally interpreted as two dead C's lying on their backs. Children...if there are real thugs where u live.....do not throw your UU gang signs in public. LOL :D(No really:()

UU signs ONLY go to UU members or Ukulele players.

THAT IS HOW UKE THUG LIFE GOES!

I can't wait to start using it.

We won't get challenged to a fight by another ukulele gang, will we, if we start flashing that sign?

Ahahaha. Wow. I can picture it in my head. I would honestly love to see that happen. And if this does happen, someone please record it.

And yea be careful where you throw your gang signs. I don't think we are responsible for any deaths...nor do we want anybody to get hurt just because they don't understand its a ukulele thing...

Gang sign? As in the company of criminals, drug runners, pimps, murderers and rapists?

I'm not sure anyone whose life was ruined by a gang would think it amusing or cute. Ask one of the young women who were kidnapped into sexual slavery if they find it endearing that we have a 'gang symbol.' Or one of the addicts whose lives are shattered by drug dependencies.

No thanks. Even if meant in fun, it's just a tad offensive. It's like wearing a swastika "in fun."

Perhaps we could emulate someone or some group that contributes to the betterment of the world, not the lowlife component that preys on it.

I have to agree with ichadwick. Let's not call it a "gang sign". We all know the familiar two fingers "victory" or "peace sign", the "thumbs up" positive encouragement sign, and hawaiians and surfers ever present "shaka sign". Heck, Parrotheads even greet each other with they're familiar "fins up" shark fin over their head. These are all positive gestures. This should be a positive gesture. Someone needs to change the title of this thread.

How about we call it a "hand sign"?

nikolo727
11-13-2008, 06:17 AM
yea I do agree, it can be taken literally on way to many levels and could be dangerous. how about we stick with the "hang loose" sign lol. cuz even if we say its just a hand sign, and someone sees it that.....umm....would take offense and perhaps physical action against, such hand signer, I dont think they would stop the beating if your pleading, "Its not a gang sign, it's a hand sign, honest!"

Good thinking. I'd rather not have UU be responsible if someone flashes the sign in the middle of Harlem to a bunch of strangers and is never heard from again. :eek:
