Bicep Kiss

Go To

"Look at that showoff, kissing his muscles."
Homer Simpson, The Simpsons, "Bart the Daredevil"

A narcissistic character (usually if not always male) loves how much time and effort he's put into his enormous arm muscles, and shows how much he loves (or shows off to others) them by kissing his own biceps.
