While changing channels yesterday I noticed Phil Silvers on Decades make several gestures I have posted on blogs and YouTubes for years . The average person will not point like this with his middle finger . Surely the producers and directors are cognizant of this common offensive gesture . This easily detectable offense was constantly made on television programs from television's beginning . Thumbs are unnaturally placed together as fingers form the sides of a pyramid . Billy Graham made thousands of these . He also made a similar finger pointing temple gesture using one middle finger . David Jeremiah and others sometimes used both middle fingers to make this gesture . Had I not watched so many hundreds , if not thousands of these gestures made by Trinity Broadcasting Network personalities I might not have included the witches' pyramid and temple fingers pics .
