ASL: "Pepsi"

Imagine using the tip of your little finger to draw a big "check" mark on your forehead.  The sign doesn't actually touch your forehead though.

Yes, I know I look like a bum in these pics. Apologies tendered. I could just leave 'em blank, but that wouldn't help you learn sign much would it?


Pepsi or Coke -- you prefer which?

Etymology of and/or perhaps just a memory aid for PEPSI:
In the "old days" some people would sign BLACK-SHAKE-(small-canister-onto) to refer to "PEPPER."
The sign for PEPSI likely originated from people doing the sign for BLACK using the hand shape of the last letter of the word "Pepsi."
