    Wouldn't it simply be better to have it as: "Selene facepalms." ?

    @margaritte You shared a Star Trek facepalm meme that wasn't Patrick Stewart? What kind of world are we living in?

    But seriously, we'll discuss this. Thank you for your input, everyone.

    Facepalm
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A facepalm (sometimes also face-palm or face palm) is the physical gesture of placing one's hand flat across one's face or lowering one's face into one's hand or hands, covering or closing the eyes. The gesture is often exaggerated by giving the motion more force and making a slapping noise when the hand comes in contact with the face. The gesture is found in many cultures as a display of frustration, disappointment, exasperation, embarrassment, horror,[2] shock, surprise, exhaustion, sarcasm or incredulous disbelief.[3]


    Origins[edit]
    The term facepalm (often used on its own in the same manner as an interjection might be) means that the palm of the hand is brought to the face with fingers splayed as if grasping. According to Macmillan Dictionary, the word "facepalm" first appeared around 2006,[2] though another source has an earliest citation of 2001.[4] The gesture itself is not of recent origin and, although common, is not culturally universal.[3] Images of stockbrokers facepalming have also been widely used in the media to convey the dismay associated with poor financial performance,[3][5] and a wide variety of regrettable film,[6] business,[7] and political[8][9] decisions have been described as "facepalms" or "facepalm moments". According to Oxford University Press lexicographer Susie Dent, this versatility is one of the reasons that the word has been linguistically "successful".[10] It was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in August 2011.[11]


    This gesture is not unique to humans. For example, a group of mandrills at Colchester Zoo adopted a similar gesture to signal the desire to avoid social interaction or to be left alone.[12]

    Maybe the icemare stretch goal on a winter telethon will return, for the iced coconuts.

    Until then, stay Frosty!

    Technical difficulties integrating the full facial palm emote while holding those things on at the same time.

    Please stand by.

    So, I have to ask, what if you are facing a palm tree, and embarrassed? Face palm Facepalm?

    Well, is it ever enough? I think not!! LOL


    Thank you @SeleneNoctua for bring this catastrophe to our attention. We certainly did not need to see Portalarium need to facepalm in real life!

    FOR CHAOS!!
