Namaste th is, mothersuckas

You know that thing people do at the end of a yoga class, where they put their hands together in prayer-form and hold them up to the chest and bow their heads? Totally fine in the context of yoga.

But when people do that just day to day, to say thank you? You look like giant, enormous sucking piles of jerkhole. Stop it. If you're not the Dalai Lama or living on a mountaintop in a turban, just stop.

Or you could be Thai. I think that's not uncommon in Thailand, though I could be mixing up my Southeast Asian cultures.

We all look the same to me.

Ok, there's a generalized Native Culture Exception. But Americans? No.

What about clasping hands at the waist and bowing? Do you just hate yellow people?!??!!?

When white people do it, yeah, I hate them. When actual Asians do it, it doesn't signify.

So are arya and I allowed to clasp one hand at the waist and... half-bow?

No, but I'd only half-hate when you do pretentious yoga shit.

If you aren't Thai, it just looks dumb.

I thought that was Californian for "Y'all come back now..."

And that, my friend, is what you get for living on the West Side. In Venice.

Personally, I like to occasionally roll my eyes skyward and say "alhamdulillah" at appropriate moments while at work. Just to watch the Muslim hating Republicans' faces twitch.

It's a little hobby I have.

No one has ever done this to or around me in Venice, as a matter of fact. Santa Monica...now that's a different story.
