Now that I’ve joined Facebook, I’ve been browsing several personal photo albums. The thing that baffles me most - aside from the omnipresent fishlips and the mandatory sticking out of tongues - is the ubiquitous flashing of gang hand signs as a means of posing for a photo.
I knew this existed, but I guess I never appreciated how common it is until now. Do folks do this to be edgy? To go along with the crowd? To make others think, ‘ya know, that 22-year-old suburban blonde with the pink nails drinking an appletini might just be a Crip’?
To each his/her own, I guess, but I would feel stupid as hell posing for a photo in such a manner. I guess I’m no damn fun.
