Bill O'Reilly, in last night's program, referred several times to the "Fickle Finger of Fate", and "Obama's Fickle Finger of Fate".. This was in connection with OReilly's "body language segment--for which O'Reilly has previously qualified for my "you are a kook if:" seriers. (You are a kook if you really believe that body language is real "news", or a real science.)
But Obama's hand gesture that gave rise to O'Reilly's segment is not the point here. The point here is "Fickle Finger of Fate".
WHERE have you seen that phrase lately? Oh. Right. You have seen it HERE, on this blog: my weekly "Flying, Fickle Finger of Fate" award. Other than that, however, I have hardly heard the phrase since "Laugh In" went off of the air (the original source of the "Flying, Fickle Finger of Fate" award). Sure, "Laugh In" did not make up the phrase: "Fickle Finger of Fate." It has been around for a long time. But you have to admit that this is quite a coincidence: my recent reincarnation of the old "Laugh In" award, and Bill O'Reilly suddenly making a big point of the phrase. This is especially curious after OBAMA has been a recent repeat winner of this blog's "Flying, Fickle Finger of Fate." Is it total coincidence that O'Reilly suddenly brings up THAT particular phrase (or at least the "fickle finger of fate" part) in connnection with Obama
Does O'Reilly, or do memmbers of his staff, read this blog? Or has the fame of the new "Flying, Fickle Finger of Fate" spread so widely taht it has come to O'Reilly's attention?
You have to admit that it is an interesting question. It MAY be total coincidence (as it MAY be total coincidence that Rush Limbaugh came up with "operation chaos" AFTER I suggested it). Then again..............................
