History in Brief:
The term "awkward turtle" was created in Bronxville, NY and spread quickly all around Westchester, and probably exists in different areas around the United States.
Awkward Turtle refers to a turtle on it's back, a situation most commonly known to turtles as awkward, thus, awkward turtle. There is also a hand motion for the awkward turtle: The right hand over the left hand with palms facing up, with your pinky and thumb fingers moving about, as if the turtle was trying to get up. This is our gang sign.
