During an awkward moment, this hand gesture is used to mark the situation as awkward, and, depending on the situation, makes it more awkward or clears the air. The awkward turtle is made by putting one hand on top of the other with the thumbs sticking outward and rotating forward. The speed of the rotating thumbs depends on the degree of awkwardness.
Boy- "I love you."
Girl- "Um...that's cool..."

A sex position in which the woman cocoons herself in a blanket with only her backside sticking out. The man's penis then enters her from behind. A good position while banging an ugly chick.

A word used to discribe the gesture made by your hands after a line or series of lines have been spoken that have now resulted in an uncomfortable silence. The person executing the "Awkward Turtle" is basically, jerking there hands around in rougly the shape of a turtle, unable to speak. And silence ensues
The evening was going smoothly until Merc had to go and tell us his dad used to lock him in a closet when he was bad. Silence ensued. Darrow began to make the "Awkward Turtle" with his hands, and the rest of us stared anywhere but at Merc.

Well known saying for when you make an idiot of yourself. Sadly the hand gesture you make for this Awkward Turtle, is actually the american sign language sign for 'platypus'
"That's not a awkward turtle you moron, that's a platypus"

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.
