Hail to the Chimp

The action of greeting between fighting men.

This can be delivered in an efficient, crisp, respectful way that literally screams REMF who has never seen combat OR a slovenly, "I dont give a fcuk cause I've been on the receiving end of 47 RPG's in a snatch landrover and I think you're a cnut" manner.

Salutes can be:

  • Classical - Right hand fist to heart.
  • Medieval - Salute with a sword.
  • Traditional military - Fingers extended and touched to eyebrow in longest way up, shortest way down.
  • Nazi - Arm extended, fingers extended.
  • One fingered - delivered on a regular basis to the UK Government from the oppressed taxpayers.
