    I just did figure out what he meant.

    Yeah, it took me a while too. For those who are uninformed, think about “grabbing ankles”.

  3. Whit says:

    Oh, that’s not how I saw it. I understood him to just mean “halt”.

  4. Jeff Hebert says:

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure he just means “Stop and be quiet”. The context is that they’ve stumbled upon a woman spying on their war council and they want to sneak up on her. I didn’t think it was anything dirty taken out of context like this, I just thought it was weird. As if they had a different action for every race they might encounter — “It’s a Black man, wiggle your ears!” or “It’s an Asian hermaphrodite, wring your chins!”

    It just made me laugh looked at as a sentence hanging out there in space, you know?

    Oh, and he’s talking to the other warriors in the party, not to the off-panel woman.

  5. White women are foot-snatchers! Be careful!
