High Fiving: One Hand Slap for All Mankind Google Roulette Monday

Knock Knock High Five

Without chance, the world would just be boring. And without Google Roulette Mondays, in which we put a chosen word into Google Images to see what comes up first, frivolity would have no meaning

We may have created the paper High Five, but here in the Knock Knock office, we don’t seem to have that much high fiving action—neither paper nor flesh. It has to be a pretty special, exciting occasion for us to slap the hands, which is why the first Google “high five” result confuses us—is it not incredibly frigid and awkward, not to mention business-suited?

For those reasons, we have little doubt that the founders of the National High Five Project (and progenitors of National High Five Day—and yes, both are very, very real) would frown on Google’s poor first choice.

Most likely they’d be happier with the second, Andy Samberg celebrating with what appears to be a baby bobcat, because high fives are supposed to be easy-going, loose, and fun, are they not? At least as easy-going, loose, and fun as the song created for National High Five Day (NH5D) by the Bo Dukes, which is so easy-going that the term “high” may have a double meaning.

Update: The “high five” force was strong with us. Check out our new High Five Sticky Note.
