The Sideways Peace Sign: An Epidemic

  • Dec 1, 2009
  • by
The sideways peace sign is a gesture that is plaguing America.  What began as a way for rappers and hip-hop artists to express their jubilance while holding stacks of money and popping Cristal has grown into a national, if not international way for teens and young adults to pose for pictures. 

Nowadays, one cannot view a Facebook album without seeing at least one person "chunkin the deuce."  And it doesn't stop there.  Like it's predecessor, the double thumbs up, popularized by the late-great Billy Mays, the sideways peace sign has spread faster than California wildfires and swine-flu—combined.  Even it's younger brother, the regular peace sign, has faded into dullness and mediocrity.  While the regular peace sign continues to promote peace, albeit in decreasing doses, the sideways peace sign promotes bro-love, hats with the golden stickers still on them, and Ed Hardy clothing.  And let's not forget the sideways peace sign's evil step-brother, the downward-pointing peace sign, which continues to pick up steam in college parties across the country.

The sideways peace sign has served as a remedy for those who feel smiling does not accurately depict their happiness.  Getting a picture taken at a party but don't want to look stoic and creepy?  Chunk the deuce.  Caught doing something stupid or awkward?  Chunk the deuce.  Don't want to be "that guy" in every photo? Better not chunk the deuce.

So when is it appropriate to chunk the deuce?  Simple: when peacing out.  That's right.  If you are not leaving, there is no need to throw out the sign.  Like anything, the sideways peace sign is palpable in moderation.  

Peace out.

Holding stuff sideways is definitely an epidemic! It does stem from "the rapper" or even "gang" thing... holding guns sideways, and cellphones as they yell into it... The gesture of the sideways peace sign to me, is an off shoot of that. It's all stoopid!!! Gregory

I live life in the fast lane. And that means there are no stop signs,no red lights,and no pulling over to take pictures.
