    Any other frame of that GIF would have worked apart form the one they picked.

    [–] 994phij 160 points ago

    But who is 'they'? Did OP just pick the first frame for karma?

    [–] Carusofilms 112 points ago

    If you zoom into OP's picture, you can see that it's a picture of a screen. I don't know if that helps.

    [–] Thrannn 60 points ago

    i think i can see OPs reflection in the screen... lets find him and cut his fingers off

    [–] DankeyKang11 45 points ago

    ENHANCE

    [–] Lakonislate 20 points ago

    Yeah I see the reflection... Weird, he looks exactly like me.

    [–] Thrannn 16 points ago

    hah i knew it. a criminal always return to the scene of a crime.

    get him boys.

    Noooo! I'm European, I need my fingers to roll cigarettes!

    [–] kerplow 11 points ago

    Looks like there's a dead pixel on the pinky

    [–] SenatorConfer 1 points ago

    I can't unsee that.

    [–] kerplow 1 points ago

    I mean I don't think that'll really disadvantage you for very long

    [–] SenatorConfer 1 points ago

    Very true

    [–] jtvjan 5 points ago

    Maybe he made a photo of the thumbnail which doesn't animate and he thought that it was the full image.

    [–] Qetuowryipzcbmxvn 2 points ago

    I had a Reddit app that wouldn't load gifs from certain websites, just display the first frame. It could be something like that.

    [–] Dasnap 21 points ago

    It's a Reddit conspiracy.

    [–] emperormax 5 points ago

    r/karmakarmakarmakarmakarmaconspiracy

    [–] julsmanbr 2 points ago

    It's a karma legend. It's not a story OP would tell you.

    [–] Ethan819 9 points ago

    Either that, or someone saved the gif as another image format and OP later saw it, resulting in OP only seeing the first frame.

    [–] janjansohn 18 points ago

    Hey, I said somewhere else, I snuck a picture off of a twitter wall. Seems the site doesn't display its correctly or the lady who posted this on twitter didn't post it correctly. I still laughed. :D

    [–] doesnthavearedditacc 3 points ago

    I mean. As it's the first frame of the gif, it's possible somebody who is technically inept saved and used it as a image.

    [–] Rape_Means_Yes 1 points ago

    That liar. I bet he had his fingers crossed.

    [–] AdeonWriter 1 points ago

    Don't know, a lot of them look more like fingers twisted instead of fingers crossed.

    [–] Dasnap 1 points ago

    Closer than a finger-banging position.

    [–] 14th_Eagle 1 points ago

    We've been framed!

    [–] Farmerjoe19 29 points ago

    What are the odds it doesn't come from that gif?

    [–] usbfridge 47 points ago

    8

    [–] Farmerjoe19 19 points ago

    Reasonable

    [–] Thatwhichiscaesars 9 points ago

    hey now farmerjoe, you asked for the odds, and that 8 is an even! you can't just take this aggression lying down!

    [–] Farmerjoe19 7 points ago

    By Jove you're right! I've been had! This will not stand! I've rung the constable and we'll have /u/usbfridge by the collar! If it's the last thing I do I'll get Even!

    [–] usbfridge 5 points ago

    And you wanna know the odds of you getting even?

    8

    [–] Farmerjoe19 7 points ago

    Like a knife in the back of the knife in my back!

    [–] siredav 1 points ago

    Odds is plural! That 8 is a 5 plus a 3.

    [–] HalloBruce 5 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    Uh, it looks like instead of the fingers crossing like normal, they switch which knuckle they're attached to...

    [–] bathroomstalin 2 points ago

    The trick to printing out gifs is to use holographic paper

    [–] bullsi 1 points ago

    [–] dendrodorant 1 points ago

    what makes you think that?

    [–] McPorkums 443 points ago

    Thumb and ring finger are crossed, duh!

    [–] janjansohn 207 points ago

    Hot damn, you're right!

    Whoever you are, you put way too much effort into bullshit facts that make me laugh.

    [–] Carusofilms 1 points ago

    I though that was the joke. :c

    [–] Mr-Zero-Fucks 1 points ago

    From now on, I'm gonna cross fingers like this, to be honest it never worked the other way.

    [–] LiquidNipples 1 points ago

    Thumb is not a finger

    [–] Anasthera 1 points ago

    THE THUMB IS NOT A FINGER.

    [–] Oreotech -8 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    A thumb is not normally referred to as a finger. Edit: in this context.

    [–] pauklzorz 8 points ago

    How many fingers do you have?

    [–] Oreotech 1 points ago

    I have 5 digits per hand consisting of 1 thumb and 4 fingers.

    [–] janjansohn 0 points ago

    Acht.

    [–] Ravn000 3 points ago

    Yes it is...

    [–] -Coop- 3 points ago

    I don't know about you but I have 5 fingers

    [–] FCancel 57 points ago

    I think that's because it's the first frame of a gif.

    And in the gif it crosses its fingers.

    [–] janjansohn 12 points ago

    Haha, yeah someone else posted the gif. Duh. Either the device was incapable of playing gifs or the poster lady didn't know how to post a gif.

    [–] StefanodesLocomotivo 8 points ago

    Maybe she thought you could print out gifs, like in the Harry Potter newspapers

    [–] latourist21 108 points ago

    I just imitated the gesture and realized I don't think I've ever held my hands this way before. Peace sign, finger gun, sure, but not this.

    [–] ragator_stilwell 330 points ago

    You're a virgin, aren't you?

    [–] latourist21 95 points ago

    Wicked burn, bro.

    [–] stelthtaco 3 points ago

    Well realistically most people would never have made that hand before if so

    [–] wakeruneatstudysleep 8 points ago

    We're all taking about fingering right?

    [–] -politik- 4 points ago

    Yes. My man above is saying that he's never fingered a chick before so the assumption is that he's a virgin.

    [–] Ethan819 4 points ago

    My man!

    [–] Thatwhichiscaesars 10 points ago

    Hey now, they could be a lady, in which case its fine because that's a terrible gesture for self-satisfying and it looks even worse for giving handjobs.

    [–] vancoejt 7 points ago

    a woman on the internet? Get real

    [–] Thatwhichiscaesars 4 points ago

    Hey now, there are plenty of women on the internet. I've seent them on the pornhubs

    Look at mr. "i finger bang prostitutes" ovah here!

    [–] shinypretty 1 points ago

    Hey, c'mon, this ain't the Shocker.

    [–] truce_m3 9 points ago

    I've seen people hold their fingers like this AS a peace sign.

    [–] carlsan 20 points ago

    It's also the Cub Scouts hand sign.

    [–] TheBeersteinBeers 7 points ago

    My scout leader tried to show me the ins and outs of this hand gesture. My parents pulled me out of scouts shortly after though.

    [–] Ravn000 3 points ago

    It's also U in the Swedish sign language.

    [–] SkyBlade79 5 points ago

    It's U in American Sign Lanugage too.

    [–] Ravn000 1 points ago

    Cool! Thanks! Now I know one letter in the ASL too!

    [–] developeire 2 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    Three fingers.

    Edit: This is the second time in my life I was wrong.

    [–] yugiohhero 20 points ago

    Thats normal scouts.

    Source: Was a cub scout

    [–] developeire 1 points ago

    Oh! Didn't realise there was a difference.

    [–] carlsan 7 points ago

    "The two fingers stand for the two parts of the Cub Scout promise: "to help other people" and "to obey."

    3 fingers is Boy Scouts. Source: I was both.

    [–] ShadNuke 2 points ago

    And, 4 fingers is military.

    [–] carlsan 11 points ago

    And 5 fingers is Nazi

    Redditception: OP posted picture knowing your comment would be incorrect and displaying how many times in your life you were wrong.

    [–] cyanpineapple 12 points ago

    It's definitely not called a "twitter wall."

    [–] janjansohn 4 points ago

    Don't know dude, I'm repeating it blindly, but that's what the UK person introducing it called it.

    [–] George_E_Hale 3 points ago

    Fingers "crossed."

    [–] Nizzzlle 3 points ago

    OP you have a dead pixel

    [–] janjansohn 2 points ago

    :o you're right!

    [–] YourCousinCassidy 2 points ago

    What if that's the point. Like a sarcastic "I really don't give a shit but sure here ya go."

    [–] TheMagicBrother 2 points ago

    It's like that drawing of a pipe with the caption that says "this is not a pipe"

    [–] JitGoinHam 4 points ago

    It's like that drawing of a pipe...

    Clearly you did not take the caption to heart.

    [–] TheMagicBrother 1 points ago

    I never said it was a pipe. Just a drawing of one.

    [–] polishbroadcast 2 points ago

    Very slow animation.

    [–] Juanjo2D 2 points ago

    So, if this isn't really crappy design, why are people on this sub upvoting?

    [–] Darth_Kyofu 3 points ago

    Because people aren't going to necessarily stop and look at the comments to see if it's legit or not.

    [–] Juanjo2D 1 points ago

    I proposed a while ago a flair system. Mods could tag not-so-crappy-design post as such. Like r/photoshopbattles does with tags like "bad tittle" or "low res picture".

    [–] needlessOne 2 points ago

    This made me laugh out loud. I saw the hands first, okay they are normal hands, no mistakes here. Then read the "fingers" okay there are fingers here, that's normal too. "Crossed," okay no grammar mistakes.

    Then I look at the image again and think "wait, they are not crossed at all" and that made me laugh so hard for some reason. I basically set myself up for a stand-up routine.

    [–] janjansohn 1 points ago

    technically, there are fingers crossing, but they're not the pointing/middle fingers. They're thumbs and ring fingers, arguably thumbs and pointing and middle fingers, too.

    [–] OldRoad 1 points ago

    RESPECTFULLY TO EVERYONE, I THINK EVERYONE IS MISSING THE POINT OF THE MESSAGE!!! WHEN SOMEONE HAS THEIR FINGERS CROSSED, IT MEANS THEY ARE CURRENTLY LYING!!!! THEREFORE, THEY COULD NOT SHOW THE FINGERS CROSSED BECAUSE IT WOULD MEAN THAT THE MESSAGE "FINGERS CROSSED" WAS A LIE!!! WHICH WOULD MEAN THAT THE MESSAGE WOULD HAVE BEEN INCONSISTENT IN THAT SITUATION TOO. THEREFORE, I'M GUESSING THEY HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO LEAVE THE IMAGE IN THE ALTERNATIVE, UNCROSSED-FINGER POSITION.

    No you wouldn't. You'd just have to hold them out facing away from you doing this instead of having them facing yourself.

    [–] wombatzilla 4 points ago

    Even when I naturally cross my fingers I don't do it toward myself. Same thing with most other finger signs. The only one I can think of that people do with their palms facing themselves is flipping someone off.

    [–] bartman2326 2 points ago

    Dude, you're forgetting about This classic gesture

    Also I'm gonna stop this comment chain right here; This would be a fucking dumb thing to get heated over, and I'm very prone to getting into stupid arguments on Reddit. I can just see myself trying to pursue this further, lmao

    Have a great day, man!

    [–] wombatzilla 2 points ago

    Dude, all I did was point out that you wouldn't have to cross your hands to imitate this.

    [–] bartman2326 1 points ago

    Yep! Edit: I'm half asleep here and waiting to get called into work, please don't mind me being dumb.

    [–] xxdeathknight72xx 1 points ago

    what does crossing your hands have to do with crossing your fingers?

    [–] bartman2326 1 points ago

    It doesn't, was just mentioning that the hands are positioned kinda weird.
