The cut down is a hand gesture use to symbolize a "diss" or a "put-down". To administer the cut down, you extend your left arm fully to make a 20 degree angle or so, to your chest. Then slide your right hand from your shoulder to the end of your left hand. You can also say the word cut down while doing the motion for added effect.

When you are losing an argument so you you take a 5.8 inch Swiss army blade and use it it to cut all the way down the opposing side of the argument’s body. This is highly effective as it will cut through their brain (reducing intelligence), their throat (preventing breathing, also stopping intelligence due to hypoxia from lack of oxygen), their vocal cords (preventing speech, stopping them from arguing back), their oesophagus (preventing food consumption, stopping them from ingesting vitamins and memory supplements), their intestines (stopping digestion of memory supplements) and their testicles and penis (preventing them from producing offspring). This is a very effective method for turning an argument if your favour.
