Our logo this week was suggested (sorta, not really) by DJ Frosty Freeze.

Those of us of a certain age knew "ASL" first - or only - as the acronym abbreviating "American Sign Language." My avatar is spelling out - wait for it - "CRZ" in ASL. That, and the "W" are borrowed from the "ASL Fingerspelling Site" which has a pretty neat CGI script thing that will spell out almost anything for you.

Would you like to learn more? (where.com)

Although technically this is week three of 2004, our anniversary logo didn't count for a week. The Walgreens logo probably shouldn't have counted, either - experience the joy of LIVE abitrary dictatorial decisionmaking

As always, logo suggestions or actual graphics can be sent via email or private message.

And, of course, I spent a few minutes wondering "Age/Sex/WHAT?" before I checked here...

The "other" A/S/L?, for those who stay away from random on-line communications

"a/s/*" is always "alt.sex.something".
I wasn't totally sure whether we were ordering 3 lesbians, or paying tribute to all the leather-loving threesomes in the WWE.

Nah, it's chatroom lingo now. Age/Sex/Location. So 45 year old men pretending to be 15 year old lesbians can pick up other dirty old men pretending to be girls with a minimum of hassle.

Learned ASL at camp when I was 12 - our 2nd baseman was deaf so the whole team learned so we could communicate with him both on & off the field - haven't used it for a long time now - thanks for the link, it may be time to teach my kids

I wish you luck with going weekly, but there are only so many W's and pictures of hotdogs out there. How long until we resort to cheap porn tactics?

This is where you may have missed the boat, CRZ. If you were still doing recaps (and the WWE "researchers" were still reading to see what happened and when), you could have floated the idea of:

"WOW! Wouldn't it be GREAT if Austin would PROMOTE a sign language response from the crowd! He could teach them the SHORT way of saying WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT is the MIDDLE FINGER! It would keep in line with his gimmick and, in lieu of us having to hear WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT, we could *see* thousands and thousands of middle fingers fly through the arena and REGALE in the SILENCE!"

It would have been HUGE!

(and yes, I thought before I posted. But I figured me having you use the phrase "in lieu of" was poetic license on my part.)

And what's wrong with cheap porn tactics?
