On the Importance of Handshakes

Travelling to work in the car this morning I listened to a radio piece on the importance of handshakes in aiding the assessment of people, even in this technological age with its detailed psychological questionnaires etc. There was even an interview with a women representing a recruitment agency describing how they give their clients lessons in how to give a favourable handshake!

Special handshakes that were secret in the past are unlikely to remain so in the age of Google and the like. A very simple search reveals the "secret" of the Masons' Handshake (or, rather, Handshakes), as well as many of their other bizarre manoeuvres.

Our old friends at the Landover Baptist Church have also done us the favour of revealing the secrets of the Homosexual Handshake. This should make it easier for right thinking Christian Folk to thwart The Homosexual Agenda.

Isn't it amazing what a little bit of physical contact can signify?
