Real tough guys don't need guns, they just need a positive, can-do attitude.

This is fantastic. Two thumbs up (no ammo).

So for all those years the Cunningham family was under constant threat and we did nothing but laugh! Chuck tried to warn us, but Fonzie thumbed him away.

pistols thumbs at dawn

Yeah, yeah, it's all fun and games with the thumbs up. Then you move on to winking and doing that head cocking thing. From there it's just a small step to "double pointing pistol fingers" gestures and saying things like "you're the man." At that point, really, is shooting so bad?

This just underscores the need for serious thumb control laws.

It's all fun and games until somebody thumb-gouges out an eye.

This is very fine.

I am the only person I know who routinely makes the "thumbs up" sign. I love this. It's very validating.

Thumbs up is very useful in restraunt settings when the server asks how everything is and your mouth is full of food.

Duck hunting would be less interesting though.

Does this make Siskel & Ebert two tough guys?

After looking at this site, I find that thumbs look freakishly odd. Thumbs? What's wrong with you?

Doesn't do it for me. I give it a thumbs down...

Well this settles it.

Somebody needs to replace the finger-guns in the Spaced finger-gun shootout with real guns.

Oh, thank God there's a second page, because I couldn't believe there wasn't a Dirty Harry yet.

Out of curiosity I looked for the original Rambo screenshot, and it looks like this was the version that was used for the thumbs. It's kinda funny clicking between them as separate tabs.

Now, Fonzie needs a gun.

I parsed the URL as 'Thumbs and a Mo'.
This could be improved with 'shopped-on mustaches.
