Nunchuck Wielding Bookie Communication Protocol

I'd like to see Bookies communicating current odds and prices to one another across dog and equestrian race-tracks using stylised nunchuck techniques.

Given the opportunity, I'd take this a step further and extend the nunchuck thing out into other hand-waving (and under certain circumstances, non-hand waving) professions such as:
Traffic Police
Aircraft Waver-onners
Morris Dancers
Semaphorists
Royal Guards at Buckingham Palace
Black Rod (after a suitable namechange)
and Potentially the Queen - during beknightment ceremonies.

There's no actual point or benefit to be gained, other than stimulating further nunchuck usage in daily British Society.

You mean when I finally get knighted by the queen she's going to bonk me with nunchuks? Great movie, you have to watch it at least once... [normzone, Oct 14 2011]

       [+] I like it. (I also mis-read Nunchuck Wedding- of which I totally approve!)

       //Nunchuck Wedding//   

       [+] for the prospect of Roman Catholic incense- burner nunchucks.

       Well, that gets a bun. [+]

       // stimulating further nunchuck usage in daily British Society. //   

       What other benefit could be possible, or more desireable ?   

       "Nunchuck Hop-Picking"   

       // Aircraft Waver-onners //   

       <psssst> They're properly called "Ground Marshals" or "Apron Marshals", and it's best to be nice to them unless you fancy 150 tonnes of aircraft rolling over your foot ....

       I should think being run over by an L1011 would be an improvement on the state of your average black pudding.
Alterother, Oct 13 2011
  

       Go and wash your brane (if any) out with soap and water. It's only small, so it won't take long ...   

       Black Pudding is a delicacy in Lancashire.   

       On consideration, that probably tells you all you need to know about Lancashire. And Black Pudding.   

       Note that Black Pudding is the weapon of choice for practitioners of the traditional Lancastrian martial art of "Ecky Thump".

       Okay, now I'm just laughing too hard to craft a clever retort.

       Re: link   

       You're funny, but not that funny. Wishful thinking at it's finest, ladies and gentlemen!
Alterother, Oct 13 2011
  

       What, like you wish you were capable of thinking ?   

       Obviously not ...   

       // I'm just laughing too hard to craft a clever retort //   

       Hardly surprising. Glassblowing while laughing is not recommended.   

       Start with something less challenging, like a bowl or a tumbler.

       //        What, like you wish you were capable of thinking ?   //   

       Nice one. Very schoolyard.
Alterother, Oct 13 2011
  

       // schoolyard //   

       Presumably you were always on the outside, looking in ....
8th of 7, Oct 13 2011
  

       Whereas you were on the ground, looking up.
Alterother, Oct 13 2011
  

       "Everyone's in the gutter, but some of us are looking up at the stars ...."   

       And, no, actually, we were usually standing in the background, chuckling malevolently at the fight we had precipitated by careful disinformation of the protagonists.   

       That was before we progressed from malevolent chuckling to "MUHWHAHAHAHAAH !" and finally to "Resistance Is Futile" ...

       Yes, the 2.71 picoseconds that elapse between being born, and the realisation that everyone from North-East of Rochester N.H. lacks that tiny but crucial 0.1% difference in genetic material between Homo Sapiens Sapiens and the Higher Primates (e.g. Canadians) ?

       Are you suggesting that the remainder of the US _isn't_ populated by slack-jawed troglodytes?   

       Oh, nice targeting, by the way. You almost nailed me, I can see your ranging shot from here. Leave it to the Borg to use a 10-megaton nuke as a marker round.
Alterother, Oct 13 2011
  

       (+) This gives me an idea...   

       Stock exchange traders. You missed stock exchange traders.
