The One-fingered Salute

On February 21, 2012, Adele was crowned Best British Female Artist at the Brit Awards ceremony in London. [Already, on February 12, she had collected six Grammys in Los Angeles, winning every category in which she was nominated, including album of the year for “21” and best record for “Rolling in the Deep”].

"It's been an amazing year. Thank you," the BBC quoted Adele as saying.

But during her acceptance speech, she was suddenly cut off and in protest, she flipped her middle finger – see photo. [Her speech was ostensibly interrupted so Blur could give the final performance of the evening!]

Anyway, a wildlife photographer on Indonesia’s Batam Island, Shikhei Goh managed to capture a hopping mad tree frog who copied Adele’s Brit Awards act of dissent by giving Goh the one-fingered salute.

Yay-y-y! Adele's got a fan!
