Fingering a stubby

Postby RainMan » Wed Sep 26, 2018 5:54 pm

Mainly seen in Thailand and mainly done by westerners, sticking your thumb in a newly opened bottle of beer and flicking it out to make a popping sound, considering your fidgets carry the most bacteria what's the point. :pissed:

Have never seen this done any where in SE Asia by locals nor by westerners. Thank god I avoid places that are popular.

Sounds like the sort of thing a bogan would say after they'd molested a dwarf.

Quite common in the PI, particularly amongst the AC expat crowd. Many many years back I questioned a now departed mate of mine about that very thing. His reply? At least it's my dirt!

Did ask around just recently and 2 western bar managers said that yes, it was a way of flicking dirt or dirty water away from the neck of the bottle, although it is not as common as before.

You have good point, I've never seen it away from the popular/touristy areas. It's a western thing, although I've never seen it at home or anywhere else.

I can understand the magical-kill-everything-tissue wipe of a can, what with those rats peeing everywhere on old stacks in warehouses. But the bottle top covers the drinking surface, the neck I could understand maybe dusty, but a finger flicking around inside the neck? - that's a bit "Kavanaugh".

Yea, that's my point, there are safer ways...especially after fingering a dwarf. :-?
