I'm sure the monks would have given them the finger if asked. :mrgreen:

So, if you want to just chuck someone the bird, you use your own finger, but if you REALLY want to stick it to them, you give them the Yeti.

It could catch on.

FTA
The finger, which was said to be from a yeti, was taken from a Nepalese monastery by an American explorer in the 1950s.

He replaced it with a human finger he had been given by a British scientist.


I suspect the crafty Nepalese monks performed the classic "double switcharoo"

The real yeti finger still safely resides in the monastry, and the BBC had Jimmie Stewart's finger tested!

or somesuch...
