I’ve been doing this since I was a kid. Didn’t know people couldn’t do it.

I recall hearing Leonard Nimoy say he got the idea because that’s how his rabbi used to hold his hands while he was addressing the congregation.

Edit, found it....

Love this:

Aww, the video won't play for me. Nimoy grew up in the North End of Boston where my friends and I hung out when we were kids.
