A spin off of the awkward turtle
, Awkward Davy Jones is a funny hand sign to use in an extremely awkward situation to ease tension.
Using one hand, place your wrist by your chin so your fingers are pointing away from your face. Wriggle your fingers to mimic the tentacles on Davy Jones in the movies Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3.
John: So I heard some girl got really drunk at a party and ended up throwing up on Rick's shirt.
Jane: That was me...
John: -makes the awkward Davy Jones motion-
