A form of applause whereby the middle finger and thumb of both hands are repeatedly snapped/clicked instead of clapped. Beatnik applause was developed in the cafes of the 1950s/1960s by the Beatnik/Beat Generation. Many "Beat Poet" fans of this period now suffer from severe arthritic inflammation of the thumb and middle finger.
POET: "The room suddenly went into a mad darkness. A spotlight pierced blackness like a white devil's knife. A voice rose and screamed. Words of beauty cutting my throat. A poem of life, of love, of doom. My years on Earth summed and fooled."

This ambiguous sound can be noticed when a rather large person's double, triple, or quadruple chin has accumulated enough mass to slap against their neck, creating a subtle clap-like noise that is produced by the movement of their jaw while eating or sometimes talking. Sometimes mistaken for lip-smacking, if you are chubby enough to have a pelican's applause, you might as well just keep eating because your ass will never be thin.
Roseanne Barr is so lazy she just flaps her jaw for her Pelican's Applause instead of exerting the energy to move her arms at awards shows.

A phrase coined by the infamous engineer, Cameron Vant, on March 3rd, 2016 that describes the awkward feeling a driver experiences while entering or immediately after entering a vehicle when coming to the conclusion that the passenger doors did not unlock; especially after repeated attempts to unlock the door, usually remotely. The phrase derives from the feeling a gladiator would experience in a large, audience-filled coliseum after a poor performance; usually a feeling of embarrassment, shame, or stupidity. Often times after such an incident, the passengers would ridicule the drivers actions by use of a sarcastic applaud; similar to a displeased crowd demanding the observing emperor to signal for the gladiator’s death.

The antonym of colossal applause is “chariot’s itch”. See “chariot’s itch”.
Listen guys, I don’t need to hear your “colossal applause”, let's just go.
