A distinctive characteristic of an individual who has too much to drink. One would have raptor hands when one places their upper arms flat against their sides, only to have their forearms erected at a 90 degree angle, looking much like a raptor. Although scientists have studied raptor hands relentlessly, it is unclear why this pose is a side affect of intoxication.
"As soon as Steven began walking around the party with raptor hands, everyone knew that he had consumed the perfect amount of alcohol."
Whenever an individual gets so drunk that at least one hand will pose as a raptor and the other is found either eating or drinking more beer. The elbow is by the side with the hand up near the chest region, the hand is limp with relaxed fingers pointing down.
