“I’m such an expert on palmistry, I’ve written a handbook”

"Handbooks” are usually not about hands, but sometimes they are. “I’m quite the expert on palmistry, I’ve written a handbook” was posted on Twitter by sikjokes2011 on July 18, 2011. “I’m such an expert on palmistry, I’ve written a handbook” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on August 8, 2019.

A book titled by Rosa Baughan has gone through several editions since the 1880s.


Wikipedia: Palmistry
Palmistry, or chiromancy (also spelled cheiromancy; from Greek kheir (χεῖρ, ός; “hand") and manteia (μαντεία, ας; “divination"), is the claim of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of the palm, also known as chirology, or in popular culture as palm reading. The practice is found all over the world, with numerous cultural variations. Those who practice chiromancy are generally called palmists, hand readers, hand analysts, or chirologists.
