Muh shekels! Muh shekels!
Chaim Weitz, better known as Gene Simmons of the 70s glam rock group KISS, wants to patent the hand sign you see above.
One problem for him is that I believe the University of Texas at Austin (the Longhorns) has been using the sign forever. The students make the “Hook ’em horns” sign at football games.
In any case, muh Jew shows muh chutzpah much.
Gene Simmons is attempting to trademark a hand gesture. The Kiss frontman has filed an application with the United States Patent and TradeMark Office to mark the sign of the horns hand movement (seen above) as his own, according to The Hollywood Reporter. On the application, Simmons describes the movement as “a hand gesture with the index and small fingers extended upward and the thumb extended perpendicular,” and claims that he first used it on November 14, 1974, which is when Kiss were touring behind their second album, Hotter Than Hell. Simmons later flashed the hand gesture on the cover of 1977’s Love Gun.
KISS was one of the manufactured recording industry attractions that debased American culture in the 70s. Can’t this Jew be happy with his millions and his retirement?
It’s not in his “genes” to be content and leave people alone.
