What Jersey can learn from the ‘NCIS head slap’
Not only are TV shows airing their season finales, but several shows are airing their series finales. It’s time to say good bye to “The Good Wife,” “Person Of Interest,” and “Mike and Molly.” In some cases, the show stays on but a character leaves.
A perfect example of this if you’re an "NCIS" fan is Michael Weatherly, who played Anthony DiNozzo. One of the things DiNozzo will be most remembered for is being the butt of the “Gibbs head slap” which was delivered by Mark Harmon who plays Jethro Gibbs in the series.
I think the “Gibbs head slap” should not only be legal in New Jersey, it should be mandatory. First of all, it’s the perfect Jersey move, you never see it coming. Secondly, it’s a great way to quickly blow off steam if you’re the slapper. Thirdly, it gets the message to the person who's slapped that they’re annoying you.
Example: you’re driving down the road and someone cuts in front of you, only to drive 20 mph less than you are. You should be able to get out at the next light and deliver the old head slap. No matter how far you had to follow that idiot, I'm certain you'd feel better.
It would be great for teachers, if little Johnny acts up, he gets a slap in the back of the head. If Johnny were to go home and tells his parents, he gets it again, just like when we were kids. I can’t tell you how many times my father slapped me in the back of the head. In fact, back when I was his original remote, that’s how he used to get me to change the channel!
