dontcry commented on the word jazz hands
Ah, yes, I forgot to mention that jazz hands only can be understood by people with gnarly feet, like dancers. Oh, and also by people with un-sanitized feet, like everyone-else-in-the-world-except-yarb.My bad. ;-)

I've never seen it. It must one of those things that happens to other people, like you-know-what-jam.
Like you are about 8-10 inches from putting your thumbs in your ears (palms forward). Kind of like a "Ta-da" flourish.
So, I'm trying to picture this. Are the hand palm-out? Palm-up?
