In the 18th and 19th centuries, grabbing someone’s nose and giving it a twist was an insult that often ended in a duel. Although I am against dueling (most of the time), I would like to see the nose twisting custom come back into style. Grabbing a person's nose firmly between the 2nd knuckles of your index and ring finger and giving it a good twist gets the point across without any actual blows being struck. You can intensify the insult by either leading the insultee around the room, or by increasing the torque of the twist to the point that his nose snaps, or both. Proper execution involves extending your hand, as if to give them a handshake, and then quick as can be, grab their nose and twist and then lead them around while they go, "nyah!, nyah!, nyah!". And if they swear out a warrant charging you with assault, everybody will laugh at them during the trial, especially if there is video. I can think of quite a few politicians' noses (and reporters, pundits, and other progressives) that I would like to twist.

Not one single nose twist in that video. All I saw were some punches, slaps, and two nose hooks. Nose hook is a different thing.

Not a traditional one. Tools are not allowed. Here's an example of an actual historically documented nose twist (or tweak) that I stole off the internet: A personage no less than President Andrew Jackson possibly suffered the dishonor of a nose tweak—while he was president! (Where was the Secret Service?) Five years after Jackson had removed naval officer Lt Robert Randolph from military service, the disgraced man approached Jackson, made as if to shake his hand, and then reached out to the jutting appendage instead. (As we know from our twenty dollar bills, Jackson had a good-sized one.) In response, Jackson tried to beat Randolph with his cane but was prevented by the other men in the room. A friend immediately offered to go kill Randolph, but Jackson refused because one’s honor could only be defended by oneself.

I don't want to twist your nose, North. Just some of the professional progressives. Also, they make nose trimmers for that bird's nest in your nose.

A good nose twisting would just about piss me off enough to want to duel.

That was the point I believe.

So then... you all do get the purposes of all my 55,000k symbolic postings! Whew! I thought for awhile the point had been totally missed! lol!
