    sorry about my spelling errors in the title. It's Bill Maher, not mayer. I am not smooth.

    I saw this interview and I was amazed at how much Bill manhandled Snoop. Does he touch all of his guests that much or does Snoop just bring out the love?

    Sort of looks like Maher goes for the bump with his left hand but changes his mind. Snoop still reacted flawlessly though.

    UK brain here; Read Bill Mayer and thought of Bill O'Reilly, gif was blurry enough for me to believe those two were now homies, I was in shock.

    I have to deduct points, Mr. Maher didn't go for a traditional hand shake, he initiated a 'grip-the-thumb' style handshake, as opposed to a 'grip-the-palm' style handshake.

    This made it easy for Mr. Dogg to release his fingers and successfully intercept Mr. Maher's G-T-T handshake.

    It's a curious interaction. You might notice that Maher first goes for the props with his left hand, implying that he acknowledges Snoop's hand-gesture intentions.

    Then he does the open palm with the right hand. He completely ignores the crucial social cue he internalized mere seconds ago. Very curious indeed.

    For me if we were to take a sample of 1,000 instances of that situation occurring it would result in an awkward dance of slap and fist .01 times.

    I think that was Bill saving the day there. Bill was otherwise kind of an elitist snob that evening whose token efforts to relate with Snoop to a backseat to making him shut up when he didn't make every democrat sound enlightened enough.

  • Deinos_Mousike

    What if two Snoop Lions did that to each other? One going in for the fist-bump, the other for a high-five?

    If they both switched, then the "palm-on-fist" would be become inevitable!
