Facepalm Gloves

When a normal facepalm is not enough.
  [vote for,

Today I had cause to apply facepalm. My hands, although large, felt inadequate in covering the shame and confusion I was empathizing. This set of large foam gloves would have helped. Sets are individually vacuum sealed in easy tear packaging and can be kept in the pocket or purse until needed. Useful in meetings, the classroom, and all about town.

Somehow, yours seem more user-friendly. [RayfordSteele, Jun 30 2014]


       You should sell these in a gross of 365. I'll order yearly as a regular account holder.   

       What happens if the vacuum seal is broken? Could you imagine being the quality control guy in charge of root causing defective facepalm glove bags? Would he need to tear one open just to lament his frustrations?

       What the hell is facepalm. Never heard of it. I'll Google, but not now, I'm at work. Ha!

       A facepalm is the gesture of placing one's hand(s) across one's face. The gesture is found in many cultures as a display of frustration, disappointment, embarrassment, shock, surprise or sarcasm. The double handed facepalm (Double Facepalm) is a magnitude higher than the single handed facepalm. The Ultimate Facepalm, as linked by [RayfordSteele], and which appears to involve an alien facehugger xenomorph putting its vagina on you, is undoubtedly several magnitudes higher than that. Facepalm gloves find their spot in the void between Double and Ultimate.

       What did you read anyway?   

       As if I weren't confused enough already, I had to look at the link, (bleh), and read what [LimpNotes], (not so bleh) wrote.   

       In yoga, we do a double face palm then, right after we rub our hands together, and then we cover our eyes with both palms, before opening our eyes slowly to the world.   

       I'm guessing this is not the same thing.

Close enough.

       Technically, it's an ovipositor...we provide the other bit.   

       I'm still thinking Geoffrey Prout had the gift of genius in this respect, not only having come up with a boy's book "Scouts in Bondage", he went on to entitle a book "Trawler Boy Dick".....yes, he was a nautical type...   

       As for me, I'm still wondering about the Japanese band named "Bump of Chicken"....

       [+] And, as gloves, they can be applied to other people's faces when they are not showing as much shame as we feel is warranted.
