Noun; Part of the whole awkward "family" (i.e. Awkward Turtle). Used when someone says something awkward, and no one knows what to do. Used mostly when someone says something to try to be funny, and it doesnt work.
One makes the awkward flagpole by making fists with both hands and staking them on top of each other 3 times. On the 4th time, the hand on top opens, and the fingers start to wave and look like a flag.
My english teacher said something awkward the other day, and our class didnt know what to do, so I made the awkward flagpole and we all cracked up...except my teacher who looked at me weird.
