Shawinigan Handshake is the epithet given to a chokehold executed on February 15, 1996 by Jean Chrétien, then Prime Minister of Canada, on anti-poverty protester Bill Clennett. The phrase comes from Chrétien's birthplace of Shawinigan, Quebec, as the former prime minister often styled himself the "little guy from Shawinigan".
"Yesterday I won the fucking lottery so I shat on my bosses desk then gave him the Shawinigan Handshake."

"Margret is soooooo annoying during meetings. Sometimes I just want to give her the ole' Shawinigan Handshake."
