    Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, overjoyed by the better-than-expected results in the UK election, had an awkward mishap after going in for a celebratory high-five with Shadow Defense Secretary Emily Thornberry’s breast.

    In a series of unfortunate events, Corbyn and Thornberry began by posing for a photo-op as several supporters were cheering them on from the sidelines. First, they embraced each other in a bear hug, then Corbyn went in for what looks like a failed fist bump that turned into a finger pointing contest, later wrapped up by a cringe-worthy slap on the chest. 

    ​While the two quickly laughed off the ill-timed high-five, the internet wasn’t quite done with the fiasco and some were left channeling their inner detective to figure out who was at fault.

    ​Others even recognized their own mishaps in Corbyn’s failure.

    ​Though, for the most part, many just saw the incident for what it was— an accident. 

    ​Let’s hope this demonstration on how to properly high-five a person helps out good ‘ol Jeremy on his next attempt.
