But as @girlwithout points out, there is something else happening here and that's probably only something that the BRS understands. As anyone at all familiar with the MW/BRS story knows, we believe that Morrissey is giving us signs by hand gesture. It's a game that we like to play. But lately it's also been the band members giving signs, in particular the two-fingered salute, which can be read many ways (there's nothing like plausible deniability): an innocent gesture of peace and goodwill, an "up yours", a symbol for victory, a symbol of membership of a secret society, the Master Number of 11.
So it's interesting that days after bassist Mando Lopez published a couple of Instagram photos featuring the V finger gesture (thereby following Morrissey's own Singapore V gesture), now Gustavo is photographed by Mando giving much the same gesture from his hospital bed, as posted on TTY. It could mean that he's OK. It could be a BRS sign that now the whole Morrissey Band are in on the BRS fun. Note also the Morrissey-esque the finger lingerie :)
A different photo, with Gustavo giving a thumbs up, was posted on his FB page, along with a beautifully written post:
This is, perhaps, a game of ping-pong, like that played out between Morrissey and Marr. If it's not, then maybe we can make it that. I suggest that members of the BRS comment on Morrissey Band-related social media posts with a hand gesture with a reciprocating hand gesture, like this: ✌ or 👍 or 👌 as appropriate.
Then let's see if it continues.
