mollusque commented on the word awkward starfish
Similar to facepalm, but used in embarrassing situations. Execute by putting hand over face with three fingers on forehead, and thumb and pinkie over either cheek. See awkward turtle.

I was just coming here to ask about the awkward turtle. Is the awkward starfish another cool, new thing that high schoolers are doing? I feel ancient.

I can't keep up with this stuff. My hand signs are still limited to thumbs up and hang ten.

And junior high-schoolers (7th and 8th grade). My daughter has a real starfish hanging on the door to her room as a reference to awkward starfish.

That's the beautiful thing about words. You can be as greedy as you like, and there's still enough to go around.

You just want an excuse to add more words. ;) Be my guest.
Who needs an excuse?
Now I feel really odd. I know all this starfish/turtle/moose stuff you guys are talking about, but I have absolutely no idea what hang ten is.
