A Waldo joke, with therapeutic value; slapping a table 3 times with one flat hand, yelling “no! “. Each consecutive “no!” is a more-demonstrative greater mock, and release of the emotion of anger. A rarely seen antic …so expertly done by Waldo Dave.
Undercurrent of Waldo usage:
Let’s face it, there’s a lot of people, ideas, orders and requests in life you’d like to say no to but you can’t … and you don’t. So we would take some time to jokingly act out saying “no” and/or ridiculing the inability to say no—amongst our Waldo group.
It’s a little bit of a primal scream therapy. Finally saying it in front of supportive friends, the chance to demonstratively and therapeutically emote “no” ….even if it is not in the presence of the person you’d really like to say no to… it feels great.
