My homage to Salad Fingers

** This blog has moved to myopinionsareimportant.com **

Have you seen Salad Fingers? I have – q275px-salad_fingers_and_horace_horsecollar.pnguite some time ago – but I ain’t blogged about it before have I? (No.) Salad Fingers is a series of flash animations by David Firth. The main character, named “Salad Fingers” (duh) has green skin and weird, long, green fingers.

You are probably thinking: this sounds rather odd. And you’d be right. Odd, creepy, somewhat disturbing, but somehow compelling in a way I cannot explain. There are, last time I checked, seven episodes of long green fingery goodness.

Episode 1:

Salad Fingers likes rusty spoons. Yay. We don’t see the spoons again until Episode 5.

Episode 2:

Salad Fingers hosts a get together with some friends. What? That freak has friends? Well, erm, no.

Quote: “I like it when the red water comes out.”

Episode 3:

Salad Fingers discovers the pleasure of nettles. (Don’t ask.)

Episode 4:

Someone falls in love with Salad Fingers, but Mr. Fingers prefers rusty taps. As you do.

Episode 5:

Salad Fingers has a girl over for a picnic. He also tries on his new wedding dress. Happy days.

Episode 6:

Salad Fingers eats his own head. Ewwww.

Episode 7:

Salad Fingers’ brother comes home on shore leave from the ghastly trenches of the Great War. But, you say, didn’t that war end ninety years ago? Yes.

****

Once you have watched those, you may poke around elsewhere at the Fat Pie site and watch the other animations. I strongly suggest you don’t; they are quite wrong.

Oh, alright. Fine. Watch them then. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.

****

I saw an old friend recently, who I hadn’t seen in years, and it turns out she reads my blog. Yay! I feel so validated.

    There’s something about Salad Fingers. Once I watched the first one I watched all the others, then I got my family to watch it, then all my friends, who watched all the episodes, then got their friends into it …

    “You taste like sunshine dust.”

    So many classic lines.
