A less excitable version, this substitute is decidedly casual. It's somewhere in between a handshake and a high-five in meaning, combining greeting with familiarity and victory. Two people pump their fists against each other, but like with a too-strong grip in a handshake, bumping too hard is considered rude and needlessly confrontational. Bumping other parts of the arm together instead of the fist is also acceptable, such as in the trope picture.

Please note, if you are visiting England, always perform this gesture with the palm facing ''OUT'' -- if you give this sign with the palm facing towards yourself, you are essentially giving the person the British equivalent of FlippingTheBird.
