For more than 40 years, Stan Fingerson, AKA ‘Fingers’ has been fighting for equal rights, justice and peace, all while becoming one of the world’s most vocal advocates for cannabis reform. An active member of the 60’s counterculture, Finger’s saw his influence wane throughout the next few decades, as his penchant for non-violence, proved to be no match for the increasing power of the global military industrial complex. Tired of constantly being kicked around and pissed on, (not by Trump…yet!) he escaped to Mexico for a couple of years, but access to only shitty cess brickweed led him back home. These days, he’s once again joined the resistance, as one half of the infamous PEACE OUT, mediators for hire. And though his partner Sym, a strapping, Bond-type action hero may garner most of the glory, Fingers is starting to build a cult like following of his own.
Today, in his office in San Francisco’s Mission District, he appears laid back and in good spirits. His pet monkey Jerry, is watching TMZ and eating a meatball sub from high above the filing cabinets. The whole thing is quite surreal. And while an afternoon spent with Fingers, brings to mind Lebowski, Spicoli and other famous dudes, rest assured, that no one is quite like him, and in this volatile, war-torn world, no one is nearly as important.
F: Yeah they are stockpiling those things, man. I know, I saw em with my own eyes last year. Speaking of which, I could totally go for some Bibimbap. Fuckin’ Jerry over there stole my meatball sub. Man, those Korean dudes sure know their way around a hotpot. Just don’t get me started on the dog meat soup.
F: Sure it’s scary. They’re cooking dog, man. They’re starving. Let’s lift the sanctions and help them out. If we’re nice and reach out, maybe they won’t want to nuke us.
F: You got a better idea, man? Look, I’ve seen Vietnam, Desert Storm, Afghanistan… I just want to kick my feet up, eat some Bibimbap and watch Game of Thrones. But no, now we got this clown Trump to deal with! Assad, Jong-un…Man, even Ahmadinejad is back! When does it end? Where’s my pipe?
F: 1965. Berkeley California, man. The CIA had me doing these crazy psychedelic acid experiments. So one day, I was mixing this witches brew of chemicals in this huge caldron, when I slipped on one of Jerry’s banana peels and fell in. I coulda totally died, man, but Jerry here pulled me out. Anyhoo, I guess the acids and shit made me grow these two fingers out of my head… No big deal.
F: Well, speaking of dogs, man. Ever since we got back from our last trip to the Middle East, the guy’s been obsessed with Bar Rafaeli. And don’t get me started on Rihanna. Look, I don’t wanna be the guy to spread rumours… BUT, he has been spending A LOT of time lately in NY… with Melania.
F: Look man, if Sym wants to bone his way to peace, that’s his prerogative man. I just don’t understand his obsession with eating booty? Do you eat booty? Seriously, what’s with everyone eating booty?
F: Listen man, don’t believe everything you hear. There’s a lot of fake news out there.
F: And while we’re on the topic, this whole getting “FINGERED” craze has got to stop. I’ve got Republican senators begging me to milk their prostates in bathroom stalls. I got that Happy Hippie Miley Cyrus, gettin’ me super baked and Instagramming pics of me passed out with my fingers inside her? Shit, half of Hollywood wants to get FINGERED as some kind of right of passage… But it’s not cool, man! I’m not a toy. I’m a human man, man, and I deserve respect. I’ve partied with the Dalai Lama!
F: What? Now you want to get fingered too?
F: No. He won’t answer my calls and he’s been ignoring me on Twitter… But there’s a guy who could use a good FINGERING. A good milking would help him relax. Plus, I’d hate to find out what he’ll do if he discovers Melania is getting her booty eaten by… next topic.
F: Who knows, man? We got extremists, terrorists, racists, misogynists, anarchists, and all these other fucking ‘ists’ out there causing shit, man. And I imagine if Trump starts World War 3, we’ll get super busy.
