After the rear of Ed Carpenter’s car touched the front corner of Scott Dixon’s IndyCar at Texas Motor Speedway, Dixon spun out of control and into the wall. Dixon, of course, let Carpenter know he was just fine (but mad) in everyone’s favorite way: with two middle fingers up.
There are a few ways that Formula One can inform a driver that there’s faster traffic behind him. One is with the traditional blue flag thrown by trackside marshals. Another, more desperate but more entertaining method, is for the overtaking driver to flip the bird as he blows by the slower car. Let’s watch!
I can tell because this Signatech Alpine driver is holding one finger up. Number one! Number one!
You’d expect these gestures to be made at a slow Prius straddling two lanes—not an IndyCar. Ed Carpenter was not happy with IndyCar competitor Sage Karam after the Iowa Corn 300. Not happy at all. In fact, Carpenter was so mad at Karam that he shot over a single-fingered salute and then confronted him after the race.
Because the Internet is full of people anxious to prove or disprove events, even those supported by photographic evidence, we're following up on our earlier report about a Google Street View driver with an active middle finger. The guys who took the photo claim it's real and are peeved the Internet doesn't believe…
Google Street View drivers have a job to do. They're the Internet's eyes. But will they really flick you off in traffic? This photo being passed around the Internet indicates they will, but we think it's a Photoshop.
IndyCar driver Will Power was not pleased with race officials this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and vented his frustration with two glorious, flaming birds of obscenity. And thus a meme was born. TO THE PHOTOSHOPS!
We told you not to hack electronic road signs. Now you also shouldn't hack electronic crosswalk indicators to make them send hilarious images of a single-fingered salute to pedestrians using a simple hack suggested by the Spokane Streets Department.
While searching for a 2010 Camaro SS, a Jalopnik reader came across this photo of a man giving the old one-fingered salute to prospective buyers coming to a Texas Chevy dealer's site. Full image below.
