Do you have a license to fly that bird?

Posted by Non-Hamster on July 17th, 2007

Let this be a lesson to all.  You should always take care when it comes to the use of sign language.  Although I am not a hamster, you can't tell me that the guy who took offense couldn't have been able to tell that the deaf guy was using sign language and not doing someting obvious like flipping him off.

Misunderstood hand signs trigger brawl (AP)

AP - A brawl involving five men apparently began over a misunderstanding when a man who is deaf and mute was communicating through sign language and another man took offense, thinking that the hand gestures were disrespectful. Police say what resulted was a brawl in which a gun was fired Sunday outside a pizza store in east Anchorage.

What happend to this deaf mute guy was inexcusable.  Just because some alleged people with the IQ of a hamster pellet couldn't get enough nurons firing to figure out that it was sign language and not the bird.  And let's not forget, this wasn't just one person.  There were five men involved in this insanity.
