What does this mean?

As of late, I have encountered a new hug. It is done by two men. They shake hands, and one or both pulls the other person forward and taps their right shoulders together, with a pat on the back with the left hand.

Is this symbolic of anything or any group? I have never seen it before about three months ago.

One of those transitory, but non secret society handshakes that have come and gone?

They're all from France. Or almost any place other than northern Europe or the US. We're the most touch-shy people in the world. d8-)

It's the "Man Hug", it's been around forever. )I substitute the pat on the back for a squeeze of a but-cheek...I get some interesting reactions!

Lots of quickies in the backs of their pickups, huh? You go, girl!
