Digitus Impudicus

8 Feb

So apparently during the superbowl M.I.A. gave the finger to the camera. Honestly, I did not see this happen as I was probably more distracted by the background dancers. What I did notice was the blur out they did afterwards. I was quite confused as to what that was and it finally made sense when everybody started to cry over this incident. So lets watch it again!

Had it not been on NPR the next morning (or all over the internet) I may have never found out. What I did enjoy from all this was NPR’s story about the history of the middle finger. Take a listen yourself , it’s quite entertaining AND educational.


My take on what happened with the “obscene gesture”? I don’t care, but happy it created enough media attention to warrant a story about the history of the finger.
