Where In the World is Carmen San Diego's Finger?

A discussion among my workmates yielded the following question:

"If you could put your finger anywhere in the world, where would you put it?"

Our first thoughts were obviously sexual, but upon further discussion we knew there had to be better choices (maybe) -- and how could one properly take advantage of such an opportunity.

And I should also clarify that we felt it was really all about what your finger is contacting. We overruled answers like, "In a bank vault because then I'd be there and I could steal everything." In the spirit of the question, we have decided to rule out financial gain. (But we did recognize this as being a tricky gray area.) We also agreed this finger placement is a one-time shot.

Some of the decisions my friends landed on were "Inside the President's heart, to stop it" and "Inside Paul McCartney's nose." Regarding Paul's nose, this person felt that "Lots of people could say they've touched Paul McCartney, but who has had their finger in his nose?" He finished this explanation with "That's Beatle Nose -- and that's a big deal."

One person chose "On the pulse of America's youth," which we disqualified on the grounds of being figurative. (And kind of douchy.)

So now I ask you -- If you could put your finger anywhere in the world, where would you put it?

The comment board is open now closed.

Hmm. Is this a one time gig, or could I put my finger anywhere in the world whenever I want? Because if that's the case, I'd like to always be able to put my finger on my car keys. Or wallet.

Hi Steve! I would put my finger on the ark of the covenant, to see if it would kill me!

in one of those chinese finger traps, they're so cool.

We have agreed that it's a one-time deal. I added it to the post. Thanks.

For lack of a better idea, and in light of the one time shot, probably Antarctica, to make that "visit every continent" project easier (not that I am undertaking that project, I hate travel, but I can't think of any other one time places I'd be interested in).

I would put my finger at the center of the Four Corners Monument, so I could say that my finger has been in 4 states at once.

In lava. Then I'd cool it down real fast and have an obsidian finger. Awesome.

On the painting on ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. I would replace Adam's hand with my finger.

Posted by: Jordan at March 8, 2007 11:51 AM

I think you picked all the big ones (especially Paul McCartney's nose...GET IT???) but I would say in a bowl of mashed potatoes made by Alton Brown - because I am sure they are DELICIOUS and I would just like to be in the same place where Alton Brown was once - even if it was only with his mixer. PLUS...I get to have a snack after I withdraw said finger.

I'd put my finger on Mars; Then I'd auction it off on eBay as the 1st interplanetary finger and donate all the money to the US Olympic finger skating team.

Posted by: gymshortz at March 8, 2007 11:52 AM

I'd put it on a Pollack painting. I've always wanted to touch one of those things.

"On the pulse of America's youth," completely douchy answer.

I'd place my finger firmly in Hitler's eye. Take that Hitler, there's plenty more where that came from.

Posted by: will at March 8, 2007 11:57 AM

Because I do not like Hitler, there I said it.

Which finger? Cause that could change the whole meaning of the event.

If not I'd that guy that cheated on me in highschool but it'd be with a finger covered in anthrax.

Posted by: Jenny at March 8, 2007 12:05 PM

I'd love to have my finger "on the button". Then, I'd get one of my friends to stand in front of a large group of people and shout "Do we really want Old Man Duncan with his finger on the button!?". Yeah. That'd be sweet.

Posted by: Dave at March 8, 2007 12:06 PM

I would place my finger on the very tip of Speilberg's ndex finger and say "phone home"

With quick reflexes like mine, it only makes sense that I be the one with his finger on the button. More suspense that way.
Sorry Tim. :)

Posted by: Dave at March 8, 2007 12:14 PM

Something that had a "No Fingers" sign, because then I'd laugh at all the people that would say, "I can't put my finger on it."

I'd definitely definitely put my finger on the gut of President Taft

I would put my finger over president Bush's lips to stop him from talking. Allthough I would never be able to remove it for fear that he would speak again.

I tried to come up with a witty or poignant answer, since I'm widely known for both, but we all know where I'd eventually choose... Halle Berry's left nipple.

And from what I gather, it may not take a magic wish to have that become reality.

i would most assuredly put my finger on the world's tallest bridge at it's highest point. that would be quite the adrenaline rush i do believe.

On the end of Moe's hand, to see how mushy Curly's eyes are.

Posted by: Steve at March 8, 2007 12:31 PM

I'd put my finger two inches in front of Bill O'Reiley's eyes and follow him all day mumbling incessantly "I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you".

Posted by: Kelly at March 8, 2007 12:33 PM

I'd put my finger in the gun that shot MLK. Maybe that way he would have been poked instead of killed.

Posted by: RYan at March 8, 2007 12:34 PM

I'd put my finger on the neck of the Loch Ness Monster, then I could say "HAHA!" to all the crackpots who have only gotten blurry photos.

Posted by: Barb at March 8, 2007 12:34 PM

So, is the rest of my hand and body attached to the finger, or is it just the finger teleporting anywhere in the world?

Hmmmm, I'm going to think on this one.

Posted by: Alex at March 8, 2007 12:34 PM


Posted by: LAFFINATU at March 8, 2007 12:38 PM

I would put my finger on Jimmy Hoffa, or Kennedy's real killer.

Posted by: Mike at March 8, 2007 12:39 PM

On the tip of the world's knife. It's about to fall in the wrong direction anyway, I might as well try pushing it the other way to see if we could come out with a better outcome.

Shoot, that's figurative.

Ummm... On the handle of AEsahaetter. Freedom. :)

Posted by: Ian at March 8, 2007 12:41 PM

Being Venezuelan, i would put, or rather, JAM my finger in Chavez's wort (he has one big nasty wort in his forehead) for we believe that's he's brain and power source.

i'f i could not withdrew it maybe in the love of my lifes shoulder or something so i can say "i will always be with you" but seeing a finger on somebodys shoulder might be a bit creepy.
if it must be a place then..

Posted by: Cassie at March 8, 2007 12:48 PM

provided there is no caveat as to WHICH finger...

and provided the magic also allows me to take over all television and video feeds world wide...

i would be proud to be able to say that i was able to give the whole world the bird.

or perhaps i'd just have it hold down the "backspace" or "delete" key (if she's a mac-er) on any keyboard that ann coulter happens to be using at any given time.

I would put my finger on any button or lever in the space shuttle just prior to take-off so I could travel to space and put my finger on something (or anything) up there.

Posted by: DMM at March 8, 2007 1:09 PM

1. I'd put it ON ITSELF, just to piss the universe off by making two objects occupy the same point on the space/time continuum. Nyah nyah!

2. On one of the members of Ween. "Can't Put My Finger On It", indeed.

3. Up Fred Phelps', erm, rear aperture. The dude obviously has some PRETTY SEVERE HANG-UPS about that area, and I (and my finger) would be willing to take one for the team just to make him confront them and shut up already.

i would put my finger in Donald Trump's hair, to see what it is really made of! i don't think the Don himself even touches it, for fear it may jump off his head and try to take over the world.

Posted by: reggie at March 8, 2007 1:43 PM

well, I can't believe there are no Dutch jokes yet, but it's only a matter of time.

I would put my finger in the wind - unless it was pissing out, 'cause some metaphors ought never be mixed. You would mock my spineless pandering, failing to appreciate that this empty gesture has secured all the best dynasties.

Years later, I'd make a secret visit to the gulag, poke you through the bars, and whisper "how many fingers, Winston?". Then, in a rare moment of lucidity, you'd remember about the gangrene, and we'd have a chuckle. But not as hard as we'd laugh over the subsequent installment of "Steve, Don't Eat It".

Going with the popular idea of sticking it to someone, be it the man or other, Id place my finger on MC Hammer, because yes, I can touch this.

After licking my finger, to make it wet; I would stick it in the air at the North Pole to see which direction the wind is blowing from.

Into a powdered-sugar covered jelly donut. And then pull it out looking all bloody.
No wait, that's what I'm doing now.
How about into the all-seeing eye. Not the Mordor one, but the one on U.S. money. Even if it didn't upset the natural order of things, it would at least drive conspiracy theorists crazy.

In a jar of pickles, of course!

I'd follow in the footsteps of the amazing Arlo Guthrie and put it in the air!

I've done the four corners thing and its not as cool as it sounds.

For me it would be in a jar of some funky Korean snack that way I could be the topic of the next Steve Don't Eat It. (which is WAY over due by the way. I seem to recall being promised one during the 2005 Thanksgiving. (Good god it's sad I know that.)) sniff, sniff, cry, then sleep.

Posted by: Nick at March 8, 2007 4:39 PM

Is the body still attached to the finger, or is it going anywhere via some sort of portal that can only fit a finger?

If it's only the finger, I guess I'd put my finger at the top of Mount Everest for a second, and gloat that I accomplished the task with virtually no effort. I might also stick it in a black hole, but that's not anywhere in the WORLD now, is it?

If my body is indeed still fully attached, then I'd pick Japan, because I've always wanted to go there. If I can pick mythical areas, I'd totally put my finger in the midst of the lobby scene from The Matrix. How awesome would that be?

You know the saying that goes something like "there's something wrong here but I can't quite put my finger on it"... Well that's exactly where my finger would be just so I can smile and say "I can."

Posted by: Mattbot at March 8, 2007 5:06 PM

Ok, so I read everyone's comments, and they're all good,,,,,well, in their own little warped way. I've thought long and hard, well I've thought long....ok, so I've thought. I think if I had to pick a place for one of my fingers to be for a one time event.....I would want my finger to be.......ummm.....on my hand. Yeah. Cause why should that one finger get to have all the fun....the other fingers would get jealous and I might suffer that phantom limb thingy, and that would if my finger is goin anywhere, it better take the rest of me with it. And if it's taking me anywhere,,I hope it choses any place where Tom Welling may be. :)

RE: The four corners monument comment... I've been there. Not even remotely as mind blowing as you would think. In fact, it's kinda disappointing. Like when you go to Disneyland as an adult and realize everything's a third the size you thought it was and goofy kinda smells like vomit. It is a small world after all. A small, small world :(

Hmmm...either the Pilsbury Doughboy's stomach (heehee) or in front of the lens of everyone's camera so my finger would be in EVERY picture! WORLD DOMINATION!!!!

About a year ago there was a discovery documentary about king arthur, and they said that he most definately did exist. The challenge was whether his story came from a roman equivalent of a monarchal lord or was he a person of the native people? This got me to thinking...

If I could put my finger any place in the world, it would be remains of the man behind the story of King Aurthur and the knights of he round table.

That would be really cool AND historically significant.

I think I'd have my finger be in the background of every movie ever made. Is that a legal one? I don't know. But I'm doing it anyways.

Posted by: Ruth at March 8, 2007 6:07 PM

(you spelled "explanation" wrong, Steve. Just so you know)

Uh, I was gonna go with John's nose, but Trini kinda beat me to another beatle. (A much better choice, as well, I just say. Ringo's nostrils are like coliseums on the 'REVOLVER' cover [though, I suppose it's an illustration].)

I guess I'd have to poke out the eyes of all the newscasters reporting Anna Nicole Smith's death and trial at unnecessary lengths; I don't think we need to hear about her on every television show (not that I watch much television -- I don't think we're missing much) every half-hour.

"i'd leave my finger right where it is - directing my mouse to"

Is a$$ kissing even allowed?? I thought this was a blog about fingers!

Speaking of which... I would definitely put mine in the last place I looked. (Cause that's where you always find things).

Posted by: Big Will at March 8, 2007 6:16 PM

There's a bitchy/spazzy girl I know. I'd put my finger up her ass to see what kind of bug crawled up in there. Then I'd take my fingernail and stab...HARD.

I would use it to push the Staples 'Easy Button'. That thing is sooooo cool. I really, really want one.

I'd make my finger really big with some kind of comic-book-radiation gun, and then put it on Antarctica, so that it would look like I was spinning the world. Then I would shrink said finger, and use it to show people satillite pictures of it spinning the globe.

I would put my finger on top of Steve's son's head at the exact moment the whole "pickles" phenomenon made it's way out of his mouth and into the hearts of every single reader of The Sneeze. Thanks for the non-stop laughter, kid. You are indeed one of the gifted in this crazy world.

I would put my finger on the Easy Button.

Obviously Steve. I would put my finger on you. Not so much "on" you as against you. Or maybe against your finger. We could rub fingers like that vulcan thingy from Star Trek III. You know what I'm talking about.

Straight into the eye of my noisy dorm neighbor who thinks that every Thursday night is a swell time to get drunk. ("I have class at 9 tomorrow - take that!")

After I pull it out of my nose I'll put it back in my bum. That's where it belongs. Silly.

Posted by: Mike Browne at March 8, 2007 9:24 PM

I would put my finger.. hmmm.. I assume you want an actual place, that exists right now. Not in the past or the future. Then my answer would be....On Sting's amp during the Police reunion tour. Then, I'd get a stage view of the show. Screw what I could tell people, I wanna see a kick a$$ show!!!

Posted by: Nicodemus at March 8, 2007 9:26 PM

I would put my left pointer finger on the very end of my right pointer finger, so that i could point twice as far...

Posted by: brian at March 8, 2007 9:50 PM

I'd put my finger on my forehead, just below my hairline, slightly to the left of my right eye.

Why? Because it itches slightly.

Hey--I just did it!

Because, well, "We're #1"!

First, I think the most warmhearted, sweetest answer thus far has been, "In my daughter's hand, so she will always know that Mommy is near and she is dear."

MY answer, however, is: Deep inside the vagina of that Katherine McPhee chick from last year's American Idol.

If you cannot provide Miss McPhee, I will also accept the vagina of any college cheerleader, preferably a freshman or sophomore.

Steve, when do you think this might happen? Please let me know so I can clear my schedule and rinse my finger.

Posted by: Bob at March 8, 2007 10:23 PM

In many pies.

Posted by: Kiefo at March 8, 2007 10:23 PM

That's a dangerous question to ask, like any "where" question. We have a silly game in my circle of friends that any "where" question gets answered "up your ass". You quickly become paranoid. If in a public place, the "up your ass" can easily be communicated with a simple grin that your interlocutor will immedialtely understand. After a short while, you become an expert at never asking "where". It is then time to introduce the second part of the game: answer any "who" question with "my ass". And so on.
Try it. I'm sure you'll love it.

I would use my disembodied finger to tap everyones left shoulder at once, Take that suckers, there was totally no one behind you! HA! Ok that wasn't as cool as I thought it would be, besides that quite a few places, perhaps a rule violation...

I would say... I would place my finger inside of a microwave, I always wanted to know what that would feel like, but they are just too small to fit myself in there. And I am curious what human flesh tastes like, I may have to eat it afterward, hopefully the nerves are dead at that point.

Posted by: Spencer at March 8, 2007 11:22 PM

My finger would be on the left mouse button where the cursor is hovering over "Post."

I would surgically attach my finger to "Thing" from the Addams Family. How much better would that show have been if Thing was a 6 fingered disembodied hand?

Posted by: Nat at March 9, 2007 3:18 AM

I don't know about my finger, but would the rest of you please place your disembodied fingers on my head so that i could have a really cool medusa style hairdoo? Then if we Choreographed a finger dance and all did it at the same time that would totally look cool. To anyone who wants to join my group we will rotate the fingerdoo to another one of us daily so we could all have a chance to be cool like that.

Steve start a sign up sheet please.

I hate visiting art museums with my wife. She is ALWAYS touching the paintings, especially those of Francois Boucher who is/was a distant relation. She has also touched a Monet. They're not ALL wired with proximity detectors, people!

Posted by: Aliènne at March 9, 2007 5:42 AM

I would put my finger on the exact spot where Moses received the law from God and Abraham almost sacrificed Isaac - just to finally settle it once and for all. Except then we'd probably have a whole new list of problems, wouldn't we?

Posted by: dan at March 9, 2007 5:47 AM

I'd put my finger in a fish tank with a lone piranha. Just to see what will happen.

Posted by: englishbob at March 9, 2007 6:11 AM

I would be very picky about where to put my finger. I would probably wedge it firmly into a mailbox, see where it goes in the world, and then listen to the last person to see it say, "Wtf is this thing??"

Posted by: Lark at March 9, 2007 6:14 AM

If finger is still attached, I would put it on the Christ Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro.

Posted by: Matt at March 9, 2007 6:32 AM

If time has no issue, I would place my finger on the delete key of the keyboard controlling the entry of the 9/11 terrorists, denying them access to board the plane.

Or maybe the trigger of the gun, pointed at the mother of Hitler.

When I think of this I imagine that it is just my finger, that somehow magically the rest of me is sitting on my couch and my finger is just teleported somewhere else for a brief period of time.

I would wait until the perfect moment, when someone is giving some great speech or other announcement of interest. (State of the union comes to mind) then I'd put my (gloved) finger right up their butt while watching them speak on the TV just so I could get a good laugh.

Hmmm....Let's see....I'd put my finger in that little biatch of a meter maid's heart who is always giving me tickets for forgetting to feed the meter! I really hate her.

I would place my finger in place of one of Jimi Hendrix's fingers - right or left hand, it doesn't matter - just so I can experience true genius once in my lifetime. But then that might be weird 'cause I'm a white dude and then everybody would be going up to Jimi asking, "Hey man, what's with the finger?" But Jimi would play it down like it was no big thing and then cut loose on All Along the Watchtower.
That would be awesome!
Though anywhere on the body of Natalie Portman or Eva Mendes would be pretty sweet too.

Posted by: Odist at March 9, 2007 7:20 AM

Most likely I'd want to put my finger in one of the following places - and they're tied:

1. In bubble wrap. I love that stuff.
2. In that wet green stuff people stick flowers in.
3. Into the back of a window air conditioner to write my name in its warpy little coily things.

I'd hang around a tattoo parlor. Then at the right moment, my finger would tickle the tattoo artist.

Hi you all!
if it were only one thing, I would like to put my finger on one thing:
Hitler's one ball(wearing hygienic equipment, of course), to squeeze REALLY REALLY REALLY hard, with the might of all the jews and other people who REALLY REALLY REALLY hate Hitler, and watch him wriggles in pain and screams German curses in a high-tone-little-arian girl pitch.
That would be satisfactory, indeed.

Posted by: Yanay at March 9, 2007 9:15 AM

So even though somebody said it already, I totally agree. I want my finger anywhere in the vacinity of Alton Brown (especially if the rest of me can be there too).

He's just so rediculously awesome.

Posted by: Lizzy at March 9, 2007 9:16 AM

if i was allowed to know where the finger was at all times.... i would put my finger on either waldo or carmen sandiego, thereby solving the age old question of either wheres waldo or where in the world is carmen sandiego....... then i would hold the information hostage until i was payed large sums of money

Finger UNATTACHED in this PHYSICAL WORLD: On my back to be able to itch that place I can never reach! (or in the Queen's tea)

Finger ATTACHED in this PHYSICAL WORLD: On the great pyramid, at the VERY VERY tippy top.

Finger UNATTACHED in the MYTHICAL WORLD: through the looking glass.

Finger ATTACHED in the MYTHICAL world: Through a wormhole like one of those on TNG. (you are a nerd like me if you know what TNG is)

***Plz note that even tho the finger is UNATTACHED it is still able to be controlled by my mind, and is not a lifeless lump 'o' finger sitting there, or lying there. (hence the scratching on the back)

***Plz also note that I do not mean ill toward the Queen, it's just that a little surprise every now and then is well, healthy. Even if it is a finger in your tea. Good to keep the old blood moving through.

***Plz also ALSO note that once the finger is UNATTACHED I would like it back,
(after it is done doing what it is doing)

thank you very much!

I'd stroke Caine lovingly. you dont need to know who that is. It would just be exquisite to touch him. then I'd write him some poetry to really freak him out. He's hot. touched by the hand of god, as it were, since we're on the lines of fingers and hands.
