What's with the "arms apart" pose?

Thread Starter 
Seeing some pictures of people doing the arms wide apart pose for the camera in the WAYWT thread. What's with that? Looks kind of pretentious to me.

some of the posters have very well tailored jackets, and raising their arms doesn't raise the bottom of the suit. I believe that is what they are doing, and you are refering to. I may be wrong, of course.

The pose kind of reminds me of a penguin.

That pose is what educates the lesser knowledgable folk about what high or the correct armhole height should be.
"Looks like a penguin"....if you did it with low armholes you would look like a bat or a flying fox.

For some, it demonstrates joy.

Fixed. I can't take credit for The Holdfast (tm). He is a pioneer. I only walk in his shadow.

As long as you do it with your arms out.
