When two people are attempting to shake hands and some sort of mishap occurs such as one person partially missing the other person's hand and ending up shaking just their fingers.

Grabbing just fingers is terrible and is sometimes misinterpreted as giving someone a limp fish handshake. Both the limp fish and just fingers make a terrible impression on both close friends and complete strangers leading to harsh reactions ranging from a moment of unspoken awkwardness, to outright ridicule or even death in some cultures.

Therefore if a handshake mishap occurs the best resolution is to immediately ask for a handshake reset. While this will not completely absolve the handshake mishap it does go a long way towards making things right.
Guy 1: Damn it! I was on my job interview and there was a handshake mishap and I ended up grabbing just fingers.

Guy 2: Did the interviewer say anything?

Guy 1: No but I could tell there was just a moment of unspoken awkwardness. He probably thought I was giving him the limp fish and was put off by it.

Guy 2: Did you ask for a handshake reset?

Guy 1: No I totally blanked!

Guy 2: Dude you're fucked! No way you're getting that job. You should have just walked out mid-interview and saved everyone's time. At least be glad he didn't kill you because he was within his rights to do so. I know I would have.

Named for the astonishing water landing of a passenger jet in the Hudson River by Chesley "Sully" Sulenberger III.

A sexual maneuver that takes place in an area that is either tiled or covered in a linoleum or other laminate floor. The act begins with the man on his knees, holding the woman in front of him, supporting her weight with his arms, facing one another, penis inserted into her vagina. The man, who has a full bladder, pulls his penis out of the vagina and urinates on the floor behind her. He then re-inserts his penis into her vagina, lowers her back onto the fresh urine, and with one big thrust of his pelvis/penis he sends her gliding across the floor like a jet coming in for a water landing. The true HM includes the man throwing his arms and head back in celebration at the moment of uncoupling after the thrust.
So Jimmy says, "My girl can't get enough of my giving her the old 'Hudson Mishap,' but I hate cleaning up after it."
