The Shocker

Okay...it's well known that I'm not always up on urban lingo and whatnot. After all, it took me years before I'd learned of expressions like: aight, burners and holla. Many I learn by watching "The Wire" off HBO. Others I've picked up just living in the city. So...you'll forgive me for only learning about "the shocker" the other day, when it was allegedly used by Duke player JJ Redick after a 3-pointer against North Carolina.

According to the Urban Dictionary, the shocker is more than just an obscene sexual act...but also some sort of urban form of giving the finger.

Okay...now that's great and all...but this is even better. I think I need one for my office.

The high school team in Waterville, WA is the shockers. If I'd known anyone at the time who knew what it was, I'd have gotten a picture to share the chuckle.
