while i do not think that a jazz hand has the same effect at the end of a speech, it's a very nice way to appreciate something in a non intrusive way so the speaker can go on without those annoying fuckers who clap all the time.


Clapping at the end of every sentence is very annoying, but it tends to only happen on televised debates or panel shows (like Question Time in the UK), where it is actively encouraged. I've never actually witnessed people do it in person.

A friend of mine when I posted this on facebook claimed that clapping "excludes" deaf people in a way that jazz hands do not. I wonder how clapping looks to people who are deaf? My guess it looks like a bunch of people moving their hands - as opposed to jazz hands which look like.... a bunch of people moving their hands.
Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself.

Actually that's something to put in the pet peeves question in my introducion topic :p

You're kind of missing the forest for the trees.

That's like if leftists get offended by laughing and decide to spread the idea that it should be discouraged out of sensitivity to the deaf and mute community and then you say, "Hey! That will probably have really good health effects on our vocal chords!" It's kind of missing the point that the left wing is slowly creating its own band of Tea Party-type nut jobs.
Blow: "Nowadays even Liam can release an album of his screechy vocals and it'll probably go #1..."
Ramzus: I can admit that I'm horny just about 24/7

Hunter: sometimes I think I was literally born to be a pornstar

I don't think waffles was saying that because deaf people use it to indicate clapping that everyone should out of sensitivity. He was just saying that they use it, and then unrelatedly saying that it's less intrusive on speakers than clapping in the middle of their speaking.
