When I saw these beauties all lined up like toy soldiers, my first thought was that it was a wax museum for witches. It was in the middle of Spring, so I knew they weren't Halloween decorations . . .
Before I tell you what they are really for, let me tell you what Eggroll the Product Tester might try to do with them:
1. Screw it into the ceiling and hang a plant from it.
2. Skewer it and use it as a back scratcher.
3. Put a few on my desk to creep out my coworkers.
4. Open a cabinet that's just a little too tall for me.
5. Make a coat rack and use these for the hooks.
Honestly, all of these seem much more likely reasons for the existence of crooked fingers on pedestals. They also remind me of an old saying I used to love . . . "She shook her crooked finger at me." That used to mean a woman was mad. I wish my great grandfather was alive so I could shake one of these at him. I know he would have laughed and laughed.
So are you wondering what they are REALLY for?
Well on this particular day, they sat on the counter at a nail salon, so clients could pick out what color of polish they wanted for their manicure. They are color models.
Part of me wonders if they were actually made for that purpose, or if that particular nail salon was owned by product testers who just came up with this idea all by themselves while browsing through a horror movie prop catalog.
In fact, if you gave me a box of these for Christmas, I would worry about your sanity.
Now, a box of crooked fingers for your thoughts?
