    I came across this the other day, and it bowled me over. Can anyone explain what they are doing and why?

      The pinky, thumb and index finger extended is a sign language symbol meaning I Love You, with the thumb closed in I'm not sure, that may be it's opposite or just a I don't love you...?
      The thumb and pinky finger only means 'hang loose' on the islands of Hawaii.

    It just looks like a popular sign to me.  The people who are using it look like they're messing around, trying to be "cool" and therefore funny tongue

    I saw an interview about this with Ronnie James Dio.
    He learned the gesture from his grandmother. It's doesn't mean "devil". He said it is done to ward off the evil eye.
    Rock on lol

      Now that you mention that, I use to live in Italy on the island of Sardegna, they would use both hands and do the Index and Pinky fingers in a downward motion to ward off evil, or as you said the evil eye.
