Thumbs up

Chris has a penchant for the terse. When agreeing with me online, he would find himself writing "OK" or "Sounds good." But really he didn't have anything to say; he just wanted to say he agreed.

So now we say:


This means "thumbs up."


This means "thumbs down."

(Why "b" and "p"? They look like thumbs-up and thumbs-down.)
