Donald Trump has announced a ban on fans performing the Mexican Wave at sporting events. The President-elect of the United States has announced that the wave, in which people sit and stand in time to create the appearance of a tidal wave, is history. From now on, everyone’s doing The Trump™.
Large screens at sports stadiums and concert venues – any location in which a Mexican Wave could possibly break out – will show details of the new wave to fans. The Donald has demanded that all participants follow these steps:
- Stand in unison.
- Take a hand, and sweep it sideways across an imaginary comb-over (or a real one if you have it).
- Push the hand forward at shoulder-level, until arm is at full extension, with the palm open and facing the ground.
- Raise the extended arm 45 degrees upward.
- Shout: “TRUMP”.
Taking back America
Trump spokesman Dick Moove told Off The Perch:
We’re taking back America. For too long, foreign influences have eaten away at everything that makes us great. French fries, taco stands on every corner… bagels! We need to return to the real America.
The Trump™ is authentically American. You won’t have seen it anywhere else in the world. Totally new. 100% American.
The Trump transition team has released a handy visual guide to performing The Trump™, so Americans can get in plenty of practice ahead of his inauguration on 20 January 2017:
