2. He's playing with a joystick
I've always thought it looks more like he's thinking, tapping his head and writing with a pen or pencil, but if you look closely you'll see the joystick.

9. Yeah
I think it was originally intended to mean video game freak, but I guess you can use it any way you see fit.

13. You know, like for a video game
that kind of joystick. You can see the base, and the handle is in his hand. Look closely, and you'll see at one point he's pulling the trigger on the thing.

15. I always thought he was digging his brain out with his finger
and what you call the joystick base was the pile. :shrug:

19. I am serious here
I thought it was a guy picking his nose and building a big pile of boogers with it. I am kind of let down if that is truly a joystick.

DAMMIT, I think my interpretation is far more true to the 'freak' aspect. So that is how I will always see it. :freak:

21. Yeah, I just don't buy the whole "joystick" theory...
That's just taking the easy way out... I mean, since when the hell does using a joystick imply "freak" ... no, it's not a joystick...
