Fingerlock Glove

You really will keep them crossed now
  [vote for,

I love it when I'm going in for a promotion interview or I'm about to ask a really hot girl out to dinner, and my friends say "I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya!". They never do. In fact, half the time folks say that they can't even be arsed to actually cross their fingers long enough to even say it.

So... latex or nitrile exam gloves with 4 fingers. The index and middle fingers are joined and have a helical shape to them, to conform to (and hold firmly in place) properly crossed fingers. keep a pack in a pocket, and whenever someone says they'll keep their fingers crossed for you, hand them one and watch them put it on.

       I don't think it'll catch on, but I'll keep my fingers crossed. [+]

       “You're damn right you'll keep your fingers crossed.”

       Then you find out that the 'hot girl' is wearing the trouser version of this idea, called Leglock.

       "Fingerglock glove".

       Gloves with fingers made to resemble the slide of the World's Ugliest Handgun?

       In some versions the crossed fingers allow the insertion of a cigarette making smoking much more lucky.

       Others are used by security forces when detaining peace protesters to prevent them from making that loathed peace sign, instead forcing them to make the much more acceptable "live long and prosper" hand signal.

       In yet others, a likeness of Jesus Christ dangles from the crudely crossed nearly parallel fingers imbuing the gloves and the gesture with special powers.

       This is great, and very halfbaked. Love. +

       I don't date Muslim. I wouldn't want to find a girl I've gotten to like to be the victim of an honor killing.

       //You didn't necessarily say "my fingers, the ones on my hand" so in theory if you to a path lab and buy some, then you can just cross 'em and keep them in the freezer. Bringing the hot girl home and pointing them out would make for an intriguing fir date, but may not lead to a second date. —bellauk65, Sep 29 2012//

       I accidentally deleted this annotation. It immediately preceded my last annotation. Sorry, it's these infernal touch screens.

       They're much easier to use if you're not wearing Fingerlock Gloves, you know.

       Potential spinoff idea: cockblock gloves. For teenage sons who need to take a break sometimes.

       Anti-masturbatory devices were baked in the 16th century.

       Probably used extensively by Thomas Moore.

       From the title I was picturing a fingertrap/handcuff combo.
