In brief: Don't bother

Most of the terrible things we've heard about cracking knuckles are myths.
Not that it is a good thing, but there's little evidence that it is a bad thing. Either way, the more you try, the harder you try, the more pissed you get---that will accomplish something: he'll do it more.
