The Dope Slap is a (generally) lighthearted slap (or knuckle tap) to the back of the skull that is intended as a disciplinary move by one character when another character does, says, or even ''thinks'' something that is uniformly stupid, or just to [[BeQuietNudge shut them up]]. The slap is almost always in some way played for laughs; think of it as an attempt at PercussiveMaintenance on somebody's brain, and thus occasionally overlaps with GetAHoldOfYourselfMan. Another variation is [[BeQuietNudge a "shut up" poke]] [[CherryTapping to the ribs with the elbow]].
