Apparently, when monks were sworn to silence etc, they still had to communicate without breaking the vow of silence.

This was done through sign language :Biggestgrin:

The one for "Where's my underpants?" is stroke with two hands up your thigh :hahaha:

There are 126 more signs like "Where's the soap?"
