Today, I had to sit between my parents in the car as they argued with one another for a whole hour over whether or not a thumb is a finger. FML

You should have just given both of them the finger, and thumbed a ride home. Thumbs are fingers unless you are Megan Fox, and then they are toes.


Who's next? You decide! Epic rap battles of historyyyy! Sorry that's the first thing that came to mind when I read that.

I'm pretty sure the mom won. In my house, the arguments are usually won by the women, simply because they are relentless. It sucks, really.

In my house it's the opposite, my dad always wins because he is too stubborn. He will go on for hours about how the world is a triangle, if that's what he thinks, and no matter how much evidence you show to prove him wrong, he still is "always right."

Thumb this how you will, but I am really curious to know whether the winner of this argument was pro finger or pro thumb.

Who else has a dad that likes to here himself yell

A man can choose between being right or being happy, any man can win an argument against a women but he won't be happy

The woman always wins, no exceptions

The real question is, who voted for finger and who voted for non-finger?

-38 my dad doesn't like to admit that he's wrong. It's either he yells until we can't take it anymore or he storms out and goes to his friends house to have fun.

What was the decision?

Sorry, didn't see #1's comment

Well, I eventually persuaded them that a thumb isn't a finger. A thumb is ACTUALLY the penis you were born with, but the doctors usually cut it off and replace it with a middle finger. Hence the phrase "Fuck you."

The thumb is a mutated penis, nothing more; nothing less.

I'm giving you three thumbs up.

2, you posted at the same time. :)

Thumbs have feelings, too. It's a finger!

Actually the thumb is a thumb. It doesn't have a medial phalange like fingers do. Sorry, nerd moment! Got to use that degree for something.

AngelicTide 11

Proximal not medial. Noticed that as soon as I posted.

you forgot to mention the movements of the thumb and bone constitution which differs as well from the fingers.

I, personally have ten fingers and ten toes. I've always thought of it as a finger. It's just a special kind of finger.

It's a finger. It has same structure as the other fingers. It just starts lower on the hand. Right by the wrist.

I would have loved to hear what they said to back up their side of the argument.

You should have just stuck your fingers in your ears. Or your thumbs.

Saying thumbs is kind of redundant, eh?

You made my day, Thank You

What an odd thing to argue about.

I'd say use your smartphone and Wikipedia it but sadly even Wikipedia can't make up it's mind.

Your son was born a day before 9/11.... Damn it....

57 - You, my friend, are an idiot.

Your comments make me appreciate what little creativity is left in this world, and for that; I thank you.

I have Megan Fox thumbs/ toes on my hand.

I don't know who took which side, but I can bet there won't be any fingering going on tonight (unless they resolve the debate and have make-up fingering.)

nofearjenshere 12

Or thumbing possibly, depending on who won the fight.

I would say a thumb is a finger, but every finger is not a thumb.

MY EYES! but seriously what's with that pic?

I love how every time honeybuncher comments, someone says something about her picture. But seriously, it is pretty disgusting. :p
