i think it would be cool if someone wore those stainless steel banjo picks, but at all times.
for most of the day, they’d have them turned so they’d be over their fingernails, like shiny claws. if it’s a girl and they had some black leather, they could look like catwoman. a guy could look pretty goth if his hair and clothes are right. but then, if he comes across a banjo somewhere, he could turn the things around 180 degrees and start picking up a storm, like earl scruggs. when he finishes the song, he’d just turn them back around and walk away like a vampire or something.
people would be like, “what the fuck, did that vampire dude just play a mean black mountain rag??!!”
it would also be good for self defense situations. not because they’re claws, though. because if you see some unwanted blacks come around, you could turn them around again and start playing dueling banjos. as soon as blacks hear that shit, they’re headed the other way. they know what that means.
i guess i could’ve been more clear about the axis of the turn, and it would also be a little more or less than 180 degrees for the index and middle fingers. but i know FL readers are highly intuitive and would figure this out.
