The meester and I are in a heated debate about how to give the “finga”. Me, I’m a no business kinda person when it comes to the finga. I extend and show off a full fledged finga, like this, which he’s dubbed as “third gradin’ it”. Because he thinks that’s how third graders do it. Like that’s kickin’ it old school. Me, that’s what I call the no bullshit, I mean business “finga”. His idea of the no bullshit “finga” is the one he’s dubbed the Camel toe. Me, I call it the training wheels finga. I mean, if you’re gonna extend it, don’t be bashful and camoflauge it in between two other fingers. Show it loud and proud.

I think you got it mixed up. Third gradin’ it is old school and don’t gives a fzuck all wrapped into one. The cameltoe is there solely to give someone the option to lick it before they stick it. Heated debate…heh.

I thought me and my husband were the only ones who argued about shit like this. I love it.

Also? Your wedding rings look almost identical to mine. Very pretty!

Jennifer February 16, 2005 at 2:47 pm

Good Jeezus, how huge is your ring? MY GOD! It’s enormous, and I’m jealous, and also headed your way next week… Wait. What was I talking about? Oh yes. I am a camel-toer.

i fall somewhere in between. i go for the 3rd grade style, but i can’t lift my middle finger that far when my other fingers are down. so my other fingers end up next to the middle one, but not camel toeing it.

you guys should do some sort of study on the many ways to give people the “finga”!

Chrissie February 16, 2005 at 2:51 pm

Me and my Hub argued about this too. I am with you all the way – third grading it;)

When I give the finga I want it to be read loud and clear, not between the lines ;)

The finga is namby pamby.

The camel toe is all about harsh angles and thus projects the rage you feel when flipping it.

And for chrissake, it’s FLIPPING, not FLICKING.

Mine is more of a half ass finga…like “you are SUCH a dickhole that I can’t even fathom using effot to make it” finga. There is a wrist fling involved too.

But if I was really pissy, I would third grade it I think.


mikey February 16, 2005 at 3:12 pm

you guys both do it wrong. third gradin it is weak… i mean, please, don’t you have enough control to hold the pose without the help of your thumb to hold the other fingers down?

and the camel toe… i flip people off that way, except without the actual camel toe (the fingers touching in the middle). that’s just weird.

I always thought it was the slap/grabbing of the inner-elbow while bending it back was what gave “flipping the bird” it’s ooomph…

Deltus February 16, 2005 at 4:06 pm

Third-gradin’ finga flippa here. It combines a fist and the “fuck you” all in one. Beee-you-tiful.

Wendy February 16, 2005 at 4:14 pm

FIRST?!!?!? No? Damn.

I had to post about it. I flip people off 42 times a day, and never really took the time to critique my form.

I see how it’s a third grade style, tho! It’s like you have to hold down your other fingers while you get the middle one up!

tj February 16, 2005 at 4:34 pm

i’m with you, i’m all business when i give the finga. i extend that mofo out as far as it will go so the recipient will be sure to see it.

the other way is too middle-school for me.

fran February 16, 2005 at 5:24 pm

uhm, how about skipping the finger altogether and just kicking the person’s ass instead…that’s what i usually want to do…but of course, there is always the loud yell cursing which i think gets the message across a little better…. :P

fleecey February 16, 2005 at 5:30 pm

me? i’m all about third gradin’ it. if you’re gonna flip someone the bird, you’ve got to mean it.

Jenny February 16, 2005 at 6:53 pm

I’m somewhere between third gradin’ it and the camel-toe. I don’t hold down the rest of my fingers but I don’t think I could ever get my other fingers around the middle to touch knuckles. That just freaks me out!

And now, I’ve spent the last five minutes flippin’ my computer off so I could figure out my style. Thanks!

Jenny - Comin' at you live! February 16, 2005 at 7:00 pm

Flippin’ the bird!

I was over at Wendy’s and I saw her post sending me here! Stop by and let them know your style so this whole thing can be decided once and for all! I personally am a straight up the middle…

Sibeal February 16, 2005 at 8:03 pm

I’m too lazy to flip people off.

Chris Vicious February 16, 2005 at 9:26 pm

Flipping the bird at work isn’t very PC. I’m calling HR.

martha February 17, 2005 at 7:15 am

just think how many people you’ve gotten to flip off their computers numerous times to figure out which style they are.

I’m more yours than the meesters but my thumb is up the side of my hand.

Ange. February 17, 2005 at 1:34 pm

Ok, my fingers so do not bend that way to make the “camel toe”. I think I nearly broke my ring finger trying to arrange them like that.

That makes it very hard to type ;)

Gimmeh Teh Fingah?

Over at Its So Not About You she was mentioning her and her hubby having an argument about which way of flipping someone off was better. You can read here opinion on the matter here. It’s interesting because 2 days…
