How do you show you're really pissed off, but don't want to FlipTheBird? Raise a clenched fist to the sky and shake it, as if you're contemplating punching/strangling God! Even better if you have a GlovedFistOfDoom, or there are a ton of fellow angry citizens raising their fists with you to show their solidarity and defiance towards The Man.

Will often result in MilkingTheGiantCow if overdone by a LargeHam.

Can overlap with SayMyName, BigWordShout. Compare BicepPolishingGesture, FistOfRage, FistPump.
