Statue of Liberty
 n.— «Whether it’s frenetic fanning or the stock-still pose known as the Statue of Liberty, overusing the paddle is the easiest way to come off like a neophyte. If you’re throwing around that much money, don’t worry: the auctioneer will keep his eye on you. A simple nod or hand lift will suffice.» —“Rule No. 1: Don’t Yell, ‘My Kid Could Do That'” by Greg Allen New York Times Nov. 5, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
