Loosens tie. Flexes entire body far more than the simple act calls for, straining to display every part of my physique that might be considered a muscle.
Hey there, cool readers.
Puts on a plain knit beanie. Slowly turns the beanie around until it's backwards.
We have good times together, don't we? Joshing around online. Guffawing and enjoying a relaxing time on the internet.
Turns a chair backwards. Slouches on it, chin resting on the backrest and arms dangling to the sides for maximum coolness.

I feel like we've bonded through online humor. This bond is stronger than any I have cultivated at a comic book shop - or even a comic book convention. I trust you implicitly. This is why I feel comfortable coming to you with this today.
Holds an iPod, iPad Retina, iPad Mini, and iPhone, each playing a different rap song. Wears an enormous pair of Beats By Dre headphones, which are not plugged in to anything.

Video games make it socially acceptable to point at Jane
