Roll Up Your Sleeves

A few days later, Worthy advised Brown: "Please roll up the sleeves of your shirt, all shirts. Even the president rolled his sleeves to just below the elbow. In this [crisis] and on TV you just need to look more hard-working."

I remember hearing as a child that if you roll your shirt above your elbows you were lowerclass and below meant upper class. That translates for me, the rolling to below the elbows that is, as, "I'm an upperclass asshole who is going to prettend to work or maybe just work just enough so that we can call it work then I'll turn over the real work to the hippies, negroes and sexual deviants."

Damn; I've always been a below-the-elbow kind of guy. Of course, I have soft, pink hands.
