The hancock maneuver is primarily used by grues and certain species of the secret race of goblin's that populate the dark side of the moon. Its useful in situations when one who is hated is choking on a particularly hard piece of food, small object, or other items accidentaly (or placed by grues) ingested. The hancock maneuver consists first of pointing and laughing histertically until the subject of laughter has turned purple, second, punching the subject in the stomach fanatically until the piece of food, object, etc. has been forcefully removed from the subject, then several times afterward for good measure, and finally once again laughing histerically at the subject as they fall down, clutch there stomach, and groan with pain. If done by a grue, the target is immediately eaten.
