Obama’s funny hand gesture
Posted by americandust on March 10, 2008
Quick… someone tell Obama he looks even goofier (in a litte-boy way) when he does that phone hand-gesture.
The reason is that by sticking out your thumb and pinky you’re pretending to actually be the phone also! This is stupid. What other hand gestures/mimicking do we do where you pretend to be the object? If you were playing charades and your word was “baseball bat” would you hold one hand outstretched like the bat while the other hand choked up on it? If you were pretending to drive the car would you use parts of your body as the steering wheel? I hate the phone gesture. It’s stupid. It looks more like a bad 80’s movie version of a surfer telling me “surf’s up!”
