Man Gives Whole World The Finger

Monday, January 25, 2010 19:25 GMT

SAN JOSE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One man is determined to give the whole world the finger.

Bobby Badfingers, who got his start on America’s Got Talent, is the world’s fastest finger snapper.

He can snap at lightning speed to just about any song in the book and dreams of one day being recognized as an “international finger figure.”

Next month, he’s taking his snappy talent to China, where he’ll be the only American performing on a variety show watched by 100 million people.

Badfingers plans to snap to “Wipe Out” and a few Elvis ditties, and turn the Chinese on to his hobby.

He already has his “finger in the door” with the local culture since he’s been practicing martial arts – with snapping breaks in between – for 15 years.

He even made a cartoon called Snappy Chan, which follows a “master of Snap Fu” who protects China Town in San Francisco.
