Octopus

The octopus sign looks like an octopus swimming around in the water. You start by placing the finger of your non-dominant hand on top of the wrist of your dominant hand, to make the head of the octopus. The fingers of your dominant hand become the tentacles of the octopus. Then move your hands around and move your "tentacle fingers" as if the octopus was swimming.
