Many of us are under the assumption that August isn’t good for anything but BBQ and sweating stains. A month voided of holidays and plentiful in sweltering heat, August is a barren wasteland of time — or so we thought!

What’s that above? Well, it’s the finger. Why are we giving it? Well, because it’s World Middle Finger Day! That’s right, today is the day where those giving out middle fingers and lollipops should have no qualms with being fresh out of lollipops!
