I have a theory regarding the well-known “spell out the letter” gestures people do during the Village People song YMCA.
Basically, men commonly make the "C "by placing their right hand over their head, i.e. so the “C” is the right way to someone looking at them. Women, on the other hand (ha!) make the “C” with the left hand on the top, i.e. as if they were looking at the “C” themselves.
My wife and I have gotten into serious arguments over which way was correct (we attend a lot of Cubs games, and until recently there wasn’t much on the field to talk about). At first I thought that she made the “C” the way she did because she was left-handed, but after talking with others and watching people in the park it seems to me that it’s correlated instead to gender, not handedness.
On the scale of trivia, this definitely ranks at an extreme (I won’t say which one…), but what say you dopers?
