Salad fingers is a flash animation by the wonderful and disturbing mind of David Firth. Salad Fingers seems to be a man based on schitzophrenia patients with other mental problems as well. he sees the world as not really there due to his mental illness and seperation from what is going on.
it is true that you have to have a little bit of brain-power and the give-a-damn to see beyond the obvious picture, which in itself is stupid, pointless, disturbing. once you see the meaning behind it, it's a very insightful and artistic look into the mind of a mentally ill person. if you can gather the awesome strength of not mindlessly gazing at the pretty pictures and the groups of letters called 'words', it's easier to grasp the concept David Firth is laying out there. it's really sad, seeing as alot of people out there think the way Salad Fingers does...if you don't like it, fine, but the show brings up very true points about the world and its people.
idgit a: salad fingers is so dumb! he's icky!
nam: you don't have a psychologic bone in your body. go back to watching powerpuff girls; that's probably mindless enough for your mental capacity.

A cartoon character created by David Firth that appears mentally insane and deranged. His characteristics seem to resemble that of the symptoms of Schizoprehenia.
Salad Finger's journey takes place throughout shows he appears in that show the world form a gloomy, cynical perspective probably to which Salad Fingers mental illness leads himself to belive. His characters resemble that of fictitious friends such as Hubert Cumberdale. Symptoms of his deranged personality and illness include: attracting to bloodshed, favoring the act of caressing rusty objects such as spoons, gathering fabricated friends, ignoring reality (ex: Conversing on a disconnected phone, and sharing dinner with an inanimate and deceased carcus). This all, of course, is fictional and thought up by David Firth with the help of a Canadian Music Ensemble and ideas from an alternative source.
The series has been parodied and sequeled (with no prequels) and is featured originally and primely on NewGrounds.Com and (1 of which contains ratings to its contents).

Mr. Salad Fingers is a precious lover of rusty spoons. He enjoys the pleasures of Nettles, yes, he enjoys them very much sir. Mr. Fingers likes to indulge in the delicacies that are his puppet mates. There will be fog on the shore tonight. Bossum. "I.. I like it when the red water comes out..." --Mr. Salad Fingers. Some may call him distuuurrbed: but I love him. Love, Kate Stewart Baxter.
"But first, let me carress this rusty kettle..." says Salad fingers mightily. Do it with thy might, please.

I think salad fingers is great.

I really have no idea why he's called salad fingers though...
But I think he's great!

Possibly the most disturbing "person"/cartoon i have ever watched, but at the same time, really cool. He lives in a post apocalyptic type world with a tim burton feel to it. he is mentally insane and probably is a schizophrenic. he enjoys rubbing himself with nettles, making himself bleed, and rusty objects, like rusty spoons, a rusty kettle, and the rusty bars of a cage. his only "friends" are his finger puppets and the hairs he finds in the hairs he finds in a panic room or somthing. the only living things he has ever met are a boy who has rusty spoons in his house, a girl who is the only other person to talk instead of scream, a boy that climbs into salad finger's oven to get a fish but the oven closes and kills the kid, a guy who tries to get into salad finger's house by banging his head against the door but kills himself, and a "boy" with stitches and an indent in his head who kidnaps salad fingers. he had a brother kenneth who probably died in the great war, but saladfingers finds half of a corpse when he is digging and thinks it is kenneth. he also finds a toy horse which he pretends to ride on. in his house there is a radio that he listens to a night so he can listen to the great war. for some reason it talks and asks salad fingers to give back the hairs he found.
salad fingers: "hubert cumberdale, fancy seeing you here."
(hubert cumberdale makes that loud shrieking sound and walks away).

Salad Fingers is a man who has schizophrenia and sees the world differently than us. When you see an episode, the setting is what he sees not you. The people he meets are seen and sound non-human save the corpse and the girl he talked to. He has three puppets which act as his other personas. Hubert is his murderous side and Jeremy is probably what he really is, but then there is Marjorie, his coforting side, possibly his mother's persona. He meets five people who are shown as the first litle boy (maybe a kid who he met one day),a high schooler (first victim maybe?) an adult who dies at his door step (maybe a neighbor he killed), that weird boy (probably the same little boy who he met and who nows likes him), and that little girl (might be a kid he killed, now haunts his mind). He has also secluded himself to the point of hallucination. He also turned psychotic at the loss of his friends who he probably killed and blamed the "War" (actually maybe the War is what made him crazy) on their deaths. He is also a gender confused man who switches roles of Man to Woman to Boy and back to Man. His house or apartment is number 22 and his hallucinations turn into demented reality in a click. Salad Fingers is just a man who was messed up and now is lonely and psychotic.
"Ew Hubert Cumberdale you smell like soot and poo"
"I never sampled your delights Jeremy"
"Clean that Muck off... I shan't have any dirty immigrants in my home..."

Salad Fingers imagines himself eating himself to explain tasting Jeremy Fisher's taste...

A series of cartoons on the internet. You guys already know the factual information, so here's my perspective on it.

Salad Fingers is a man who lives in a small shack in the middle of a post-apocalyptic wasteland. He is severely mentally ill, possibly as a result of his isolation. It is evident how long he has been alone by his reaction to a little girl speaking to him- he becomes psychotic and frightened. It is clear he hasn't heard anyone speak in a long time.

Although Salad Fingers does not seem to wish to cause people harm, he has accidentally cooked someone and has a mysterious room full of meat on meathooks the origin of which is not explained.

I find salad fingers to be sad, just because it's hard to think about what everyday life is like for very disturbed people.
I don't know why, but I like salad fingers.
