The alpha and omega of the curtsey

1st and last lines from the Wikipedia "curtsey" entry:

A curtsey (also spelled curtsy or even incorrectly courtsey) is a traditional gesture of greeting, in which a girl or woman bends her knees while bowing her head. It is the female equivalent of male bowing in Western cultures.


While some have argued that "men don't curtsey," others claimed that on May 20, 2017, US President Donald Trump appears to curtsey for King Salman of Saudi Arabia during Trump's first trip abroad as President

1. republicans felt that their Draft-Dodger-in-Chief was absolutely adorable

as he meekly bowed his head and then curtsied so daintily to the Mighty MegaBucks Petrol Potentates of a foreign nation.

republicans are in a sweaty swoon about just how fabulously cute their family-values role model, Comrade Casino, was.

2. Wonder if he will genuflect

in front of the Pope? The proper way is knee hitting the floor and then bounce back up!

3. I don't think he was trying for a curtsy

I think he was trying to keep from falling flat on his face when he bent over. He skipped an event due to heat. I think he is seriously ill.

4. IIRC rigidity of the spine and fusion of the vertebrae...

are long term effects of syphilus.



And, of course there is always his gut. Like an old friend commented once when having difficulty bending over, "Did you ever try to fold a grapefruit?"
