Shady Tree, Awkward Turtle, what else is there?

I just heard about an uncomfortable moose, no idea how to do it, but what other hand gestures are there to point out those hilarious awkward moments in life?

awkward salmon is my favorite….tap the person against their cheek with the back of your hand repeatedly (like a fish if you put him on grass/dock)

definition via wikipedia:
The Awkward Turtle is a gesture made after something awkward just happened, or when there is an awkward silence. To perform an awkward turtle there are three steps to take. First, place your hands on top of each other with both palms facing down and the fingers pointing forward. Next, move thumbs out and away from the hands. Finally, rotate the thumbs.
