    How far can you get in his text before wanting to “monocle” him yourself? I got as far as “Good day.” Then I got as far as “My name is Clifford Conley Owens III.”

    I am a fan of weird hand gestures that communicate things to a speaker- especially if the communication is “you’re a ponce.” However, I’m not sure the monocle gesture is effective. I want it to be lower than the eye, as if you’re picking up the monocle from it’s sitting place above your cheek. Not actually MAKING a monocle with your hand. For that silliness we have the thing where you turn your hands upside down and form a circle around your eyeball.

    @Brachinus: The pretension is feigned (though all the details are true).

    @Mary Jeys: Yes, I’m confused about that myself. I did not expect that people would express such an interest in this gesture. I’m trying to get back in touch with one of the Maracuchans that I saw do it to find out if it is supposed to go under the eye.
