A bit embarrassing
Here's a sign that a friend posted on his blog a few days ago. The embarrassing thing is that I had to think about why it was supposed to be funny.
I've always had trouble with left and right. The way I tell (still) is to hold my hand with my thumb perpendicular to fingers, making an 'L' shape. The hand with the L going the correct way is Left.
L for 'left' and L for 'loser'....
