Finger parentheses

Making finger quotation marks to convey that you're being ironic or quoting something is both annoying and fun. So why doesn't anybody use finger parentheses? It's just as easy to curve your hands like parentheses as it is to move your index and middle fingers up and down. The next time I tell someone about the origins of the name Godzilla (it comes from the Japanese "Gojira"), I'm definitely using some finger parentheses.

Warning: Using finger quotes inside finger parentheses may be hazardous to your phalanges.

I'm a fan of the single-finger quote within a quote myself. The question there of course is space or no space.

I've always been a big fan of the middle finger exclamation point.

What about those little squiggly parentheses-type things? Why do they exist, or is it only on a computer keyboard for fun?

I totally use hand parentheses. My sister pointed it out to me, and sure enough, she was absolutely right. I don't whisper, but I do change my tone a bit. I didn't even know. Maybe you do it, too. Ask your friends.
