Celebrity hand blessings!

Published by at 2:55 am under Jerks


OK, I tried to find a photo or youtube clip illustrating exactly what I’m talking about but after 30 minutes I got side-tracked and started looking at hot tattooed rockabilly chicks on flickr. The internet is an evil time suck! You can relate because at this exact moment YOU are wasting YOUR time!

Anyhoo, I think I can describe this dumb celebrity move without video evidence. Also, I should mention that I already know nobody is going to give a shit about this subject. Tough titty. Do people still say tough titty? Can you tell I’m avoiding the subject at hand? (No pun intended! Seriously, I didn’t notice this hilarious pun until I was proof-reading.)

Fine, fine, here we go…
(Jerry Seinfeld voice) What’s the deal with celebrities always blessing me with their hands? Their beautiful, superior hands. There is something so incredibly annoying when a celeb addresses a crowd, perhaps at an award show, and does that stupid, hippie, hand blessing/bow combo. It feels so condescending and disingenuous. If you could see their thought bubble it would read something like, “me me me me me me me me me me me me.”

I give up, this post is dumb. Forgive me. I’m hand blessing you all right now. Well, actually it’s more of a finger blessing.

    Drives me fucking nuts. I’m not positive, but I think it comes from Yoga. Namaste, I believe it’s called.

    We get it Celebrity assholes! We know you have nothing better to do than take 4 hours of Yoga on the beach everyday, so don’t rub in our faces with your bullshit greeting!

    But it is kinda cool when they put their fist to their chest – kinda saying ‘one love’ to me, you, everyone…

    I think everyone every once in a while likes to sit down at the computer and give themselves a little hand blessing.

    I had no idea the guy running this web-log kept a running tally of how long it takes for people to bring the painful joy of laughter into his life.

    Neish- It’s best to hand bless yourslef at least twice a day. It keeps the cancer away.

    I think you mean the Japanese bow, which Lisa Kudrow does as washed-up sitcom star Valerie Cherish in “The Comeback,” and it’s always accompanied by “Honor the work.”
