Why is a thumb sticking up seen as a good thing … in some countries?
Why is the middle finger sticking up seen as a bad thing … in some countries?
It seems all individual fingers … and different combinations of the 5 available fingers … and combinations of individual fingers, from both hands, have different meanings to people in different countries.
Is there somewhere that uses toe language?
If not, I guess toes are meaningless.
note: apologies for the monkey sitting on an example of a non-renewable resource in the above photo.
double note: sticks and stones may break my bones, but the flaming well sharpened dictionary full of words sitting in that archer’s bow scares me too!
I don’t think I did any good deeds today.
… no badges for me, I guess.
There’s always tomorrow!

If humans only had 4 digits on their hands and feet,
– metric would be just as confusing as the imperial system.
– nail polish would last longer.
– no one would be giving anyone the middle finger.
-sign language might have less words.
-ape hands would look so weird.
-base 8 would be pretty standard.
-cartoon characters would probably only have 3 fingers.
-Agatha Christie may have written “8 Little Indians“.
– one of those little piggies either would not be going to market or not going wee wee wee all the way home.
… and would we be saying …
Four Finger Discount.
double note: having your finger cut off in the Yakuza would probably mean more too!
Today was like a bananaless banana split.
