1. when a person is unable or incapable of clapping in a conventional way.
if someone has broken their wrist but is at a play and wishes to show their appreciation for the actors, they try to clap but it hurts their wrist. they are then deemed "handiclapped."
*often marked by a person clapping awkwardly or slowly, in attempts to look like they're clapping normally when they really just can't.
2. it could also refer to people who try repeatedly to give each other hi-fives but keep missing or doing it wrong. (an easy way to prevent this from happening is to watch the elbow of the person you're hi-fiving while you hi-five them.)
Pedro kept trying to clap for the dancers, but he couldn't, because he had just banged his hand on the edge of a table, rendering him handiclapped.
