A handshake used by Marine Corps soldiers. First invented by Gunnery Sergeant Beatrice Middleton in 1945. Done this way: first, slapping a high five; sliding the hand lower and giving a slightly lower five; closing of fist and tucking the thumb in; then bumping them while saying "Eagle, globe, and anchor"; then as the hand is pulled and shaken and "Away we go!" is said. Also, when the fives are given, "Up high" and "down low" are said as well.
Amos: Hey Sarge, there's a party down in the defac.

Orville: (confused, not knowing what Amos is saying) This crazy thing. What's this hand thing they're doing? Are they trying to show off?

Beatrice: No, it's the Gunny Five. I invented this. Let me show you how.

(Beatrice gives the Gunny Five to Amos. Amos passes the Gunny Five to Orville)

Beatrice: You do it that way, it's easy!

Martha: These men are going crazy. What's with all these fives? I want to learn how.

Beatrice: (demonstrating to Martha) Up high, down low, eagle, globe, and anchor, and away we go!

Martha: (yelling) That's funky. I'm going to have to teach all the soldiers that.

(Orville and Amos wink at each other then look at Martha and give the Gunny Five to Martha)

A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.
