Ha, not really, but the real story is even dumber:
Three-and-a-half year old Hunter Spanjer, who is deaf, signs his name by crossing his forefinger and index finger and moving his hand up and down.
To his family, friends and those who know the Signing Exact English (S.E.E.) language that the Grand Island, Neb., boy uses, that gesture uniquely means "Hunter Spanjer."
But to Hunter's school district, it might mean something else. The district claims that it violates a rule that forbids anything in the school that looks like a weapon, reports KOLN-TV....
*it's an old Firesign Theatre joke. Also, BONUS: Stone Cold Steve Austin signs my name for you!

When I was in middle school you weren't allowed to wear hats. A kid had cancer and lost his hair going through the treatments. He was allowed to wear a hat to school. Everyone understood why he was allowed but no one else. This is just stupid.
Luger Axhandle would be a pretty cool porn name.
I knew a deaf kid in school named Walther Blunderbuss who used a double-bang-bang gesture as his name, and nobody gave that kid a hard time.
Yeah, this is the tyranny of the "zero tolerance" initiatives that have taken over schools. It removes any chance for people to use what little common sense they may have.
There's a city in Nebraska called "Grand Island"?
Bushwood Country Club is in Nebraska and it has an inland sea nearby large enough for the Flying Wasp.
