Morgan asked my opinion about a Christmas present for Liz, so I was googling about and discovered that there are a ton of people out there who, for one reason or another, think that the sign for "bullshit" actually means "good luck."

...

I just don't have words.

Cultural appropriation, for the LOSE.

Huh...any chance this is referring to another culture? Not another sign language, but just something along the lines of the hamsa?

It's not impossible, but given that all the examples I've seen have been American sellers, it's not likely.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the Italians use this sign? Um... don't quote me on this, even though I have a hot Italian girfriend... and I really do not feel like researching. I noticed the one negative review noted had a comment to it, and that person noted this was used as "bad luck repelent". Then again, maybe they thart bad luck with lumps of cow poop?
