People Are Totally Confusing Their Significant Others With This Viral Hand Gesture

Take your eye off the internet for even a minute these days, and you might miss the latest viral craze.

And while it's usually fun to share a new meme with someone , this time it's been far more hilarious confusing everyone who was out of the loop.

By some counts, the English language has over 170,000 words in it, so as far as words go it looks like we have got the bases pretty well covered.

Even with all those words at our disposal though people still love to find other ways to communicate -- in this case, hand gestures.

Whether it's a thumbs up from your friend, a friendly wave from your neighbor or an angry middle finger from a drunk guy on the subway sometimes hand gestures can communicate more than words ever could.

Than again, if you're not familiar with the particular hand gesture in question things can get a little confusing, and very funny.

All across Twitter people have been clawing at their significant others like ornery lobsters and the reactions have ranged from mild apathy to utter confusion.

And if you're not in the loop you might also be asking yourself "what in the actual hell is going on?" So let's clear that up.

The viral craze all began with this 15-second clip.

The short compilation from a young couple shows an excited girlfriend running across a number of different rooms to place her chin in her boyfriend's hand after he makes the gesture.

The clip itself has caused a number of different reactions.

While some are labeling it "relationship goals" others aren't so sure about it.

After all it can be kind of hard to it "cute" when you're summoning your significant other like a dog.

Seeing people who had no idea what was going on trying to figure it out made it all worth it though.

And Twitter couldn't get enough of the perplexed reactions.

But you might want to think twice about trying it out for yourself. Your mileage may vary.

Though a few of the successful attempts were undeniably adorable.

But nothing could the purest reaction ever.

A T-shirt worn by a child became a point of contention between two mothers whose kids are in a playgroup together.

The offended mother, codenamed "Karen," disapproved of the phrase on the toddler's shirt to such a degree, she confronted the child's mother through a series of texts and threatened to ban him from their playgroup.

They say that some of the greatest comedy springs from the greatest tragedy.

And that sentiment is most certainly true when it comes to Stephen Colbert.

While many know the comedian as a smart, funny, and charismatic late night personality from critically acclaimed shows like The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, it may come as a surprise that Colbert has dealt with an incredible amount of loss in his life.

Let's be honest, divorce sucks pretty bad in the traditional sense. There's a lot of heartache and paperwork involved - and that's if it's an amicable divorce. If there's some animosity, the process can be straight up traumatizing - but it's 2018 and we're all about making the best out of the worst, so let's find those silver linings, shall we? Divorce isn't all bad. Turns out, it's gone some pretty sweet bonuses attached.

Full confession, my closest friends often tell me I'm the dumbest genius they know. I breezed through school, handle advanced concepts with ease - and I spent ten minutes looking for my phone in the dark by using the flashlight app on my phone. The saddest part is I didn't even realize how dumb I was being on my own. I tried to recruit my ten-year-old to help me and she just stood there staring at the phone in my hand with the sort of silent pre-teen judgy face you see in sitcoms.

I'm not a people person...

Some of us are gregarious, loud, thrill seeking (often obnoxious) introverts. We love everything and anything social. Are opposite friends are introverts. We look at them and can't help but feel... they just need a little friendly shove into the fun. Not so. Often they are perfectly content in their quiet company of one. Many do have a crippling social anxiety that can drive them to some interesting predicaments when they are thrust into a public situation.
