True or false: giving someone the thumbs up sign down under is the same as telling them "up yours."

 

I've got a lot of thumbs up memes I use in the celebration thread, but I'm not looking to pick a fight with an entire continent.

^False...🤣🤣.. "Thumbs up"... Is good, well done, goodonya....use ya memes without fear. 

 

Did some Aussie tell ya that?...cos they were probably just havin a lend of ya...cos that's pretty funny.....although until we got flooded with yanky tv shows in the 80s the 2 fingered salute (ala the poms at Agincourt) was the preferred offensive hand gesture...even as a little tacker I knew that was bad (the reverse V for victory) but I remember wondering what was so bad about the single finger.. then in 90s they were interchangeable...but now the one finger is the more common....which I get, we are essentially lazy so one finger is easier than 2. 

 

Just remember....this is the country where we call our mates cvnts and people we hate mate ....so if you were confident in ya friendship you could use the up yours finger an be cherries anyway.

Aw Geez.  I thought all those people were complimenting my driving.  Do you think my husband knows that.  I always tell him that I am the better driver because I get so many thumbs up.

Look out @Boo I am headed your way!

Hey @Boo you sure they didn't say the peace sign was the up yours...cos that's kinda true...if you give the peace sign down here but with the back or your hand facing out that's the same as flipping someone the bird...

I vaguely remember when George H.W. Bush was our president and he inadvertently flipped off a bunch of Aussies on an official state visit down under.  He was flashing the "V-sign" unaware of what that meant in Australia.

 

It's probably a bit like the telephone game.  Someone said the peace sign means "up yours" and somewhere along the line of communication somebody confused the hand gestures.

I would LOVE for Australia to take over the world right now.  I would even consider taking a bite of that vegemite stuff.  And then puke like the image @Rozuki used.  Sidebar- i should probably learn how to insert the gifs and memes and stuff other than emojis :)   If not for the laws of physics and what not- I would gladly have my toilet water flush the other way.  If Australia took over the world and dropped their infamously GIGANTIC spiders on us all- I would scream expletives and take cover- but I would welcome the new world order.

I have a cunning plan...courtesy of my first trimester quit insanity/insomnia...and it doesn't even require spiders, or snakes, or drop bears 😉

 

Oh and I wouldn't be dissin Vegemite, it's grouse as, you'll soon be eating it for breakfast, lunch and tea...and you'll be happy about it!

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
