Fist bump heard 'round the world
The hoopla about Michelle and Barack's fist bump is kinda puzzling.
The fist bump lost its novelty for me when Jean-Claude Van Damme did it with monks in Double Team. Nowadays it is just as normal as a handshake or a high-five (and especially convenient if you have sweaty palms).
And you know it has really gone mainstream when two sixtysomething lady senators do a fist bump on CNN.
But to be implied by Fox News (a.k.a. Republicans' mouthpiece masquerading as a news network) that it is a "terrorist fist jab" is downright ridiculous it's hilarious. C'mon people, it's just a fist bump. No biggie.
