from what I remember it is pretty close to the sign language for DF3. (although you might end up at Cockerforehead if you mix them up)

Get in!

DF3 Are you from Scunthorpe by any chance?


06/03/2013 at 13:23

maybe Marseille? or Cockfosters???

06/03/2013 at 13:24

No, cos then there'd be two c***s in Scunthorpe wouldn't there?

06/03/2013 at 13:25

You would spell it out!

06/03/2013 at 13:28

Oh, was it a joke?

06/03/2013 at 13:35

Shall I start laughing now then?

Like you didnt know ........... playing the 'straight' card doesnt make my joke any less funny.

I think we'll let Skotty decide .......... skotty was it funny?

Does anything make your jokes any less funny?

No, but i do know the sign language for 'F-off'. . . oh and 'BullSh*t'

Since it's a proper noun you would normally spell it out, then agree on a "signing name"

if you had done any sign language you would know that you can not just expect it to translate into english.its its own language that has been around for many years and has evolved........

it has its own specific way of forming sentences and the best part it gets rid off all the bullshit and the unimportant parts of languages and so its very very direct.........

Max's Mum. Did you learn that from Mr Tumble?

Sussex, no just from a friend who is a teacher of deaf children (and she learned it from them!)

I told my husband to F off in BSL the other day while we were waiting on a childrens ward. I was horrified to see a kid watching intently then tell his mum what I signed. It was only said in jest, by the way

06/03/2013 at 18:48
I thought it was the middle finger.
06/03/2013 at 20:34

No, that's an "i"

How do you sign it by 'eck?

It was actually one of the first signs I learnt.
