Did you hear about what happened with Joe? He lost his job last week, wrecked his car, and got mugged last night. Poor guy must have been touched by the fickle finger of fate.

Screw the fickle finger of fate! I WILL get this promotion or else!

Get the fickle finger of fate mug.
A sexual move done between a recently married couple. The man takes his middle and index fingers and shoves them deeply into the womans vagina with brute force. He then widens his fingers as wide as he can. It should then cause great alarm and great pleasure to his recent wife. If she screams in pain and agony then they will not last forever. Made famous by one named Harvey Green
"Congrats on the marriage man. You think you will last forever?" "Dude on our honeymoon I gave her the Fickle Finger of Fate. She loved every second of it. We are lasting forever."

This perhaps is the first version of "flipping the bird" on prime time TV.(Rowan & Martin's "Laugh In". Was an American sketch comedy television program which ran for 140 episodes from January 22, 1968 to May 14, 1973.)

If they thought some deserved getting "the finger" They would be given "Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award", saluting actual dubious achievements by the government or famous people. A breakthrough in TV broadcasting.
Holding ones arm outstretched with thumb and fingers retracted except the middle one and the middle finger extended as far as possible, You are now Flying the Fickle finger of fate. When you aim it at someone in particular, you are giving them a "Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award"
