a mighty, one-of-a-kind hawk that is constantly on the prowl, looking for awkward situations. It often soars through the air, looking for its prey. Once it finds its victims, it often swoops down at them, sometimes resting on the shoulders of its prey. It has been common for the awk hawk to stick around with its victims, causing them great emotional pain and physical discomfort until the great hawk gets tired to the point where it needs to take a power nap in its awk hawk home. The universal symbol for the awk hawk is to (1) make a flapping motion with your hands as if you had wings, (2) awkwardly look around at the people you are with, and (3) if the situation is awkward enough, one might incorporate their entire body in this action, where it almost looks like they are having a seizure. Although it appears the hawk flies solo, it is unknown if the awk hawk does in fact have a family. Perhaps it is related to the awk ant, as well as the late awkward turtle. There is no possible way to stop the awk hawk; researchers have been studying this new species and are yet to discover any type of repellent. Be safe. The hawk could be anywhere, at anytime, soaring high above you waiting for the right "awkward" moment for it to feast upon.
"The post-prom lakehouse incident of '10 is never to be forgotten; the awk hawk certainly left its permanent mark on that house, scarring its victims for life."

Gretchen - "Well... this is awkward."
Regina - "No! Don't say that or you will summon the awk hawk!"

when something awkward goes above and beyond awkward turtle status, the Awk Hawk can be utilized.

To perform the awk hawk gesture, one must place their hands together so that both palms are facing the ground, the sides of the thumbs are pressed together, and the fingers are all straight out and pressed together. then, one must move their fingers (except for the thumbs, which stay in place) up and down in a repetitive, flapping position, like wings.
this is the Awk Hawk.
