If you have at least one ounce of cool inside, you’ve done it. The Obamas made it part of the media cycle for a few days back in June 2008. Even the Dalai Lama has been on the receiving end of one.
The first time I noticed it was in the early ‘90s when a team wearing Michigan basketball jerseys did it after every score during the championship game at Hoop-It-Up in San Jose.
The Fist Bump.
From playgrounds, to the Senate floor, the Fist Bump makes everyone feel pretty cool. Whether you ride dirty, nerdy, or simply want to activate your Wonder Twin powers, the fist-to-fist gesture is cooler than a high-five, hipper than a handshake, and let’s face it, transfers fewer germs.
So give someone a “pound” today, and exercise your coolness.by
