Human greeting rituals aren't quite weird enough. I think when two people meet on the street, it should go more like this: one guy initiates the greeting by making a reflexively circular inquiry. Because the question has no sensible answer, this extends the courtesy of allowing the other person to answer anything without being wrong. Then one of the people flings a fleshy bit of bio-matter at the other, and the other guy grapples at it with his own, and in this manner the two people demonstrate that they aren't grossed out by each other. Doesn't that sound like a polite and succinct way for people to introduce themselves to each other? Oh wait, I just described saying "How do you do?" and shaking hands.
