I have a couple uncles with missing fingers from either farming or wood working accidents. I'm sure they'd jump on this if the price went down.

Can I get one of those to go in the back window of my car? When people make me mad, I wouldn't even have to turn around to give them the finger.

They'll either help people or somehow become sentient and take over the world.
