Watch it here: Fist bump called "terrorist fist jab"
In something of a fatal gaffe, Fox News anchor E.D. Hill lost her show a week after suggesting that an innocuous fist-bump regularly performed by Barack and Michelle Obama on the campaign trail might constitute a "terrorist fist jab." Upon hearing the news of Hill's firing, thousands undoubtedly engaged in celebratory fist jabs as well. This prompted a national security crisis of the yellow variety, which meant people should basically freak out, but quietly, without waking the neighbors.
