A couple of points on handshake.

BROFIST, bones or pound - whatever you call it, scientists are pushing for a global adoption of the st bump to replace handshakes.

Lab-dwellers at Aberystwyth University in Wales have proved that a shake transfers more bacteria than other forms of hand-on-hand action.

Here we go again. e health and safety brigade move into overdrive and now want to ban the good old-fashioned handshake.

Well, here is my message. When I feel it appropriate and I wish to greet or respect someone, I will do it with a brisk, friendly handshake not a st bump.

My message to these Welsh bons will not require my whole hand, merely just two ngers of one hand.
