A saying used to ignore and disregard a comment or an insult when you can't think of a way to counter it. When this phrase is used, it is customary to raise your hand, palm facing out, and place it almost touching your adversary's face. This can make even the most civil person raging mad. Another variation is "talk to the hand 'cause the face don't give a damn'." I really did not know that people still said this.
Misty: Kylee, you a nasty, ugly, stupid-
Kylee: Talk to the hand. (Raises hand to Misty's face.)
Phrase used in combination with a hand gesture intended to convey the message: "I am enjoying my ignorance. Please do not ruin it by discussing facts or logic with me." Used primarily by low-brow talk show guests and other adults who read at a third grade level.
Mother to 13 year old daughter who dresses like a cheap whore: "Come on honey, get the makeover, you dress like a hoochie."

"Talk to the hand," sometimes uttered while holding out the hand palm up, is short for the phrase "Talk to the hand because the face isn't listening." It has the same intent as saying, "Don't waste your time with excuses, I don't want to hear about it."
When the employee was late for work and offered an excuse to his boss, the boss shot back, "Talk to the hand," and walked away.
