Who Gives the Finger?

Johnny Cash makes a direct deposit at the Finger Bank.

Lots of People

People love the versatility of the finger- it's direct, it's pissy, and it gets a central point across meaning, "I hate you and all you stand for." Everyone can use it, from the trendy to the downtrodden, from the lofty to the people who live in artist's lofts.

We found a great book called, "The Finger: A Comprehensive Guide to Flipping Off" that covers a lot of this territory. Check it out ON SALE at their website!

George Bush "Flip-Off"
George BushSee the President Flip the Bird
When George Bush was Governor of Texas he gave the camera a "One-Fingered Salute" before going on the air. While Bush may not have been the Commander-in-Chief at the time, this video is historically significant because the highest ranking U.S. official caught flipping someone off previously was Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller. Mr. Rockefeller was thought to be in the first stages of dementia at the time and died two years later. The same thing could be argued about Bush, but two years later he was made President. (1.1 mb)
