You twist your thumb, unnaturally behind your pointer finger knuckle, to the point where your thumb can go no further. Then you make a fist with the rest of your fingers, and it looks absolutely awkward.
Person 1: Hi, my knee is really killing me today.

Person 2: Man my head is killing me, we drank too much last night.

Person 3: Wow, my ass is really sore from all that butt sex.

Person 1 and 2: *awkward fists*

The pose made when you have to take a photograph with a person you do not feel comfortable with, yet you are required to put your arms around him or her for the sake of a decent photograph. In this pose the hand does not grasp around like a normal embrace, but rather clenches into a fist in case you have to escape this creepy person.
