To all my mainstream people who read the site regularly this may not apply. But the term the ‘fist bump’ is what the msm dubbed this practice, but it actually is called ‘a pound’. Anyway the Dalai Lama got a lesson in how to be cool from the mayor of Memphis.

Ha! Great comment Suzan David. I guess you guys are also aware of how to sneeze because a certain MSNBC reporter was schooled earlier this week. Anyway being safe is cool!
Oh yea, and the story DOESN’t say that Mayor Lowery checked in advance and both the bump and the Hello Dalai comment were approved in advance.
Actually here in Memphis, we started doing the fist bump instead of shaking hands due to the recent outbreak of H1N1. The city council introduced it during a televised event. It’s not cool – it’s safe! Suzan David
