Throwing Signs - Family Portrait

“My parents are both very serious people and do not joke around. My brother and I joke about my involvement in my sorority, Alpha Phi, and my minimal commitment to my chapter. After taking a Thanksgiving family photo, my brother and I asked my parents to make the “throw what you know” Greek Alpha Phi sign with their hands and mouth. They had no idea what was happening and complied out of confusion.”

    The blue shirts and complete absence of red leads one to the conclusion that this gangsta family must be Crips.

    I’m guessing either mom and/or daughter is in Alpha Phi sorority. I’ve seen other hand signs like that. (And yes, we did stuff like this when I was in college, too. KKG)
