American Sign Language:  "government"

If you add the "person affix" marker to this sign, it means "governor."

Note: If you do this sign with an "F" handshape it means FEDERAL.


Form a "G hand" and point it at your temple. Draw a circle in the air and end by touching your temple.

 Do you think the government pays well?



Note the similarity between the sign "pea-brain" and "government."  The sign "pea-brain" starts on the forehead and uses a smaller motion.
