So, ive been trying to figure this out. by definition, a pimp slap is performed with the back of the hand, coming from the shoulder in an outward stroke, and a bitch slap is from above the shoulder with the palm of the hand. is that correct or reversed?
therein lies the weeks most enigmatic question. there are many schools of thought on this. i believed it to be the way i had originally stated it until a friend of mine at work and i debated on it. the only thing we can agree on is the context with which they are delivered:
A Pimp Slap: Delivered without warning when dealing with someone who is in debt to you and has not delivered (usually giving a pathetic excuse instead). This is followed by restating the request for payment as if the stroke itself will remind the recipient of their obligations.
Dan: Hi Jim.
Jim: Hi Dan.
Dan: Whats up, man?
Jim: Look, i'm going to need to get my shovel back. the one you borrowed last week.
Dan: Oh, hey. I took that to mother's i was helping her with something in her yard.
Jim: Well you need to go get it.
Dan: Well, i cant do that today. So you're going to have to wa--
Dan: *PIMPSLAP* I said, im going to need my shovel mother$&^#er!
Dan: [holding face] You didn't even let me finish! I was saying, you're going to have to wait for thirty minutes while i drive over and get it.
A Bitch Slap: Delivered with strong warning, usually in response to someone popping off at the lip who should not be and is a result of a bitch or bitch-like individual not respecting their place in the world. this is often followed by the choke and another slap, depending on the mood.
Frank: Hey Mike, whats up pal?
Mike: Hey Frank. How have you been?
Frank: I've been alright. I see you're still driving the same beat up old truck.
Mike: Would you mind not leaning on it like that. please, Frank.
Frank: Whatever, like it matters.
Mike: Seriously, If you don't stop leaning on my truck, Frank, I'm going to have to bitch slap you.
Frank: *Leans harder and rocks the truck laughing at Mike like its all funny.*
Mike: *BITCH SLAP*
Frank: *falls off the truck* I'M SORRY, I WAS JUST KIDDING!
Mike: *Grabs frank by the collar and slaps him again* What wrong with you Frank? you cant hear when i'm talking to you?
Frank: It wont happen again! I'm sorry!
I'd like to point out; situations where you are bitch slapped and pimp slapped are easily avoidable.
hows this for one..
a bitch slap was created by women, combining the sudden correction of a pimp slap with the high handed open handed striking posture of a bitch slap. thus it was so named for its inventor. "that bitch slapped me!"
The one thing I picture when I hear the term bitch slap is that it's usually a quick slap. A quick little jolt that says "Stop being a stupid bitch and do what I say or else I'll REALLY hit you"
In my mind it usually follows the pimp slap, thus balancing out the sling of your hand (e.g. left to right, right to left)
