Hi. I have to chuckle at both you and Judge. First, I thought that was cool to spell cat and dog at the same time, but I must be finger impaired! I can't do it! I can put my head and rub my tummy at the same time, but for the life of me, I cant seem to spell both at the same time. Grrrr.....

As for Judge, I haven't seen the NJ sign for dog, but when you showed us, I was on the floor rolling! You gotta wonder where those NJ dogs have their noses! Bhah-ha-ha! :)

I can do the reversal.

I can do M-O-M and D-A-D.

I can YUMMY and HAT.

What else? I'll let other commenters throw in more ideas.

I like the Judge's example, hahaha!

hola! CAT/DOG has been around for awhile- always so funny to watch anyone who tried this :-) and I wondered who invented this CLASSIFIERS tool?

Hi!
I wonder if you can do A to Z and Z to A at the same time? My class students and I tried to do that, but it's never that easy!

I second, third, fourth, fifth!
Hearing people have no two vocal
cords.

So unique that I think that
deaf people have TWO languages:
one functions in the right
hemisphere and the other in the
left hemisphere!

ASL is THE unsurpassable
language!

By the way, welcome back to the
world of the deaf blogosphere!

Grins. I did something like that in one of my vlogs back in January.

Wonder if you can switch words, and spell cat on your left hand and dog on your right hand? (or vice versa).
