"...bitch slap of change."


One of the funniest things I've seen on the interwebs in a long long time:

{Fisty-come-lately. I know, I know. Stale news.I'm behind, I have to catch up!}

My mom doesn't understand the whole fist bump phenomenon. "Why don't they just jump up and bump chests?" Then out of no where, she fist bumped me in the car yesterday. When two Chinese ladies are doing it speeding down Baseline Road at 51mph, then why the fuck wouldn't TIME dedicate an entire article to it? Call me ol' fashioned, but I still prefer the high five.

Highlights from the article:


  • "the fist bump heard 'round the world."

  • Deal or No Deal host Howie Mandel reportedly adopted the gesture as a friendly way to avoid his contestants' germs.

  • Human Events racily suggested it was closer to "Hezbollah-style fist-jabbing," (the phrase was later removed from the article).

  • One Internet poster even referred to it as "the fist bump of hope."

  • ...botched a high-five on national TV during the 2005 U.S. Masters Golf Tournament.
