The Official Handshake Etiquette Guidebook

Guys, check these out, you never know when they’ll come in handy…

Shaking hands is a greeting ritual that dates back to the early Neolithic period, and it was somewhere around that time when people decided it was more appropriate than licking someone’s face to acknowledge a clan member.
