The smoke signal is one of the oldest forms of long-distance communication. It is a form of visual communication used over long distance. In general, smoke signals are used to transmit news, signal danger, or gather people to a common area.(source: Wikipedia - smoke signal)
Now, a new and stupid trend is making a play on this old form of communication: "machine gun talking".
In America today, gun-toting nationalists find any excuse to display or use their firearms in public, like incorrigible perverts flashing their "junk".
It's been recently reported that a group of deplorable morons got the big idea to communicate to one another using gunfire across the great expanse of the American southwest after talking disparagingly in a shitty biker bar, about Native Americans using smoke signals, while making wooh, wooh, wooh sounds.
"What if instead of smoke signals, we communicated in Morse code using assault rifles," one of the idiots stated.
Annoying nationalists are now shooting in the air for various purposes. To notify other nationalists of their presence, especially when entering one another's driveways. Sometimes to describe what beer labels other nationalists are drinking at barbecues, "machine gun talk" is used to scare off groups of liberals from hiking, biking, or smoking pot on desert boulders while picnicking.
To transmit information, the caliber of the ammunition varies, sometimes small caliber, sometimes large caliber, depending on the time of day.
This form of communication is imbecilic and reckless. "Machine gun talking" is not without consequences; it can be misinterpreted. In a recent incident, a rapid report of assault rifle fire translated as "come on over, we're binge-watching pornography, swimming in the pool, and getting drunk" was misinterpreted as "we need reinforcements, we're feeling threatened because we're trapped in the middle of a leftist block party where people are fucking each other, race mixing, cross dressing, playing Reggae music, smoking pot, and running around naked while playing acoustic guitars, and discussing equal rights".
The resulting numb-nuts nationalist assault was a tragic tale of how idiotic and deadly "machine gun talking" is.
