6. Cover your base...
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 06:16 PM by RobertSeattle
Say "According to British Intelligence, you are a major league asshole". Then you have plausible deniability!

4. Part of me thinks...
it would be fun to just cut loose and tell him off about all the things that I'm furious with him about. But I don't think it would do a damn bit of good so I'd probably make my momma proud and just walk away.

7. The trick is to squeeze directly on the line of the knuckles
It's incredibly painful, even if you don't squeeze that hard.

I'm just saying...

8. other
And I'm dead serious.
I would not shake his hand.
(my mama raised me better)
I would not say a word.
I would just look him straight in the eye and not break eye contact and wait for his reaction.
I think he would look away.
If people did this to him I think the shame would overwhelm him.

But that would leave him with one!
Did you mean his real hand? Or those fake rubber ones he's carries in his jacket pocket?

11. First, I'd wonder how I ended up at a Radcliffe Mixer...
...then I'd shake his hand really firmly, a la Christopher Walken in "The Dead Zone", and call him asshole to his face.

12. Look around quickly
No sign of Alan Funt? Run. It's a trick, and this time the men in dark suits aren't Mormons on mission. :)

14. I've met three presidents...
Ford and Regan being two of them. I was happy to shake their hand. But Bush? I wouldn't go out of my front door if he was standing in my yard. I certainly wouldn't shake his hand.

18. I would be compelled
to sock him one for all the people he killed, but then again I don't want to spend the rest of my life in prison.

I would probably just cross my arms and shake my head in disgust.

19. If I knew that the chance was coming, I'd wear a wire.
Then, while shaking his hand, I'd say, "You are pushing us into WWIII for the enrichment of you and your friends."

I would love to get a "Who cares what you think" or similar response on tape.

20. Shake his hand and rant
You've met people like that - they shake your hand and shake and shake and shake and shake and shake and shake and shake and shake and they talk your damn head off and by the time it's over and you've got blisters and bruises and you use your hands for a living (typing and keyboard).

Most people who do this are Freeper types.

Return the favour.

23. In the Nicest Possible I Would Say:
"Mr. President, there will always be an asterisk under your hat."

That should give me enough time to get away.
