The "Awkward Turtle" is used during the present moment of a situation at hand. You may use it under the table at a diner outing to relieve some of the awkward tension, or on your way to the restroom as you excuse yourself from the awkward moment. The Awkward Turtle is also used in conjunction with the Awkward Antlers when re-telling the aforementioned events.

A hand gesture created and used to shed light on the fact a certain situation has become "awkward". It doesn't look like a turtle, or an awkward turtle, it's just dumb.
Johnny: So, when she said that I was all like *awkward turtle*
Dave: Dude, that's the dumbest thing I've ever seen, plus, it just makes you look like an ass for making the awkward situation more awkward. It doesn't even look like a turtle.
Johnny: Oh, uh *awkward turtle*
Dave: You're a dumbass.

The awkward turtle was originated from many awkward situations where a man would take his pants off before sex, and due to a lack of girth and or size would make the situation very awkward thus also shriveling the ballsack. The tiny penis/shriveled sack combination looks similar to a turtle with it's head poking out, picture a turtle upside down in its shell.

This phrase was soon brought out of the bedroom and applied to everyday awkward situations, but all refer back to that original awkward turtle moment when the awkward turtle first appeared and the woman mysteriously got a horrible headache...

The awkward turtle is symbolized by placing one hand, open, palm facing down, thumb out to the side on top of your other hand, palm facing down, thumb out. The thumbs are then wiggled or rotated in tiny circles to signify the awkward tension.
Her: Are you ready?
Him: Yeah, let me take my pants off...
Her: *Gasp*
Him: It gets bigger!!
Her: I just got a really bad headache... I think I'm allergic to your tiny, pathetic penis.

This moment describes the awkward turtle.

(adj) The term "akward turtle" was created in Bronxville, NY and spread quickly all around Westchester, and probably exists in different areas around the United States. Awkward Turtle refers to a turtle on it's back, a situation most commonly known to turtles as akward, thus, akward turtle. There is also a hand motion for the "akward turtle...that being the right hand over the left hand with palms facing up, with your pinky and thumb fingers moving about, as if the turtle was trying to get up..
