Too Slow Buffalo

I've been doing a lot of research lately to learn more about one of my new tricks: The High Five. Naturally, my thirst for knowledge has led me to the fountain that is WIKIPEDIA. And I've been drinking it up. The only thing more ridiculous than the written content of the High Five article are the pictures that a few of the "authors" added to help demonstrate High Five variations. I must emphasize that I do not know these people; they're just helpful citizens of an online knowledge bank. Yep.

First we have Too Slow:
Here an initiator engages in a High Five with the would be victim. (Be sure to mouse over the pics to get the full effect.)

The initiator then lures the victim in with an offer of a Low Five.

The initiator then pulls back his offer of a Low Five prior to the victim making contact.

The initiator then takes the opportunity to taunt the victim.

The second section demonstrates the Air Five:
Here an initiator expresses interest in a high five but due to her proximity to the other participant, they cannot physically touch. The participants then "pretend" to High Five which is often accompanied with a "mouth-noise" imitating a slapping sound. In this instance, the initiator has accessorized her Air Five with a "Shooter." This is a rare combination and is seldom captured on film. Bask in its glory!

I really enjoyed this Wikipedia article so I thought I'd share. I'll leave you with a video clip demonstrating one of the more intricate "Fives" out there. Cheers.

Here's a picture of me "fiving" my high chair. After all, this blog's supposed to be about me right?

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
