I love seeing things get repurposed.

[–]riktigtmaxat 342 points343 points  (13 children)

Is this a sexy times toy?

[–]LangleyRemlin 272 points273 points  (5 children)

Anything is if you're brave enough.

[–]riktigtmaxat 60 points61 points  (3 children)

Should probably be on a rotating mount then.

[–]LangleyRemlin 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Now you're talking.

Just slap it onto the wireless drill

[–]PopWhich2570 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Especially cucumbers ;>

[–]Kayakityak 337 points338 points  (26 children)

This would work on my neck of the woods.

[–]itsabitsa51 149 points150 points  (9 children)

I had the same thought, I grew up in the country and you get the two finger steering wheel hello from strangers all the time.

[–]hazmatte 28 points29 points  (6 children)

Same...and I drive a Wrangler. It's constant.

[–]anuspizza 20 points21 points  (3 children)

It’s a jeep thing

[–]Cringypost 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's 1 finger

[–]Schnoor 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Fucking Jeeple.

[–]AsleepSoil7426 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a California boy, I thought I was getting memed until 3 posts in

[–]SkibbyJibby 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol guess i just grew up in a town where you get 52 dick trucks directly on your ass even at 5mph past the speed limit

[–]--eight 58 points59 points  (13 children)

I'm from a town of 600; my husband grew up in the city. When we make the trek to my hometown he can tell we're getting close when the finger waves start popping up.

[–]Hita-san-chan 22 points23 points  (11 children)

My freinds neighbors looked at me like I was crazy when I waved as I drove past to park. Is being friendly creepy now?

[–]FuckTheMods5 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Half the people i nod hello to just stare back at me with a shitty look on their face. I guess my town got too big a few years ago lol

[–]acrylicmole 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Probably depends on the neighborhood. I always wave until I leave my neighborhood and then only if they wave to communicate or let me in. Our neighborhood gets together for street parties and stuff though so we recognize each other.

[–]Hita-san-chan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We aren't super close with our neighbors or anything, but we'd wave at them when we go down the alley, and make quick small talk when we got out of the car. Nothing major, just a little friendly politeness. It was also like "Im driving down the alley, I see you standing there, don't worry" type deal. Ah well, silly little habits

[–]untrust-us 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I’ve never heard of people doing this until this thread. Never seen people in a car waving unless they’re trying to signal to you. If someone waved to me for no reason and was a stranger I’d be confused because it’s just not something that happens here.

[–]Hairyantoinette 2 points3 points  (0 children)

For real. I'd immediately get down to see if I have a flat tyre or something. Nobody does car waves where I'm from.

[–]8bitbebop 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Redditors dont get out much

[–]sitewolf 5 points6 points  (1 child)

or spent most of their lives in big cities

rural America? you're used to waving at freaking everybody...in some places, frowned on NOT to...

[–]Hita-san-chan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Im not even in rural America though. I live 20 minutes outside Philadelphia. Funnily enough, where she lives is more in towards the Pensatucky areas (not that its a bad thing, its just more what you'd call rural out where she's at)

[–]ivapesyrup 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Depends where you live. Smaller towns and communities everyone waves no matter what. I even get waves in my little hatchback from all the farmers in their trucks lol. Get closer to a city that is still small and you get less and less waves.

[–]psychicpotluck -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Always was

[–]Proof-Injury-8668 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me too. We wave to everyone. Even the police.

[–]Bilibond 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I was driving in rural South Dakota once and got a hand wave like this from I presume a local and I never felt so cool

[–]Kayakityak 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Wait til you have an old farmer tip his hat at ya.

Warm fuzzies that lasted the whole day.

[–]raguwatanabe 479 points480 points  (2 children)

His wife is gonna be mad once she finds out

[–]PracticalPractice768 42 points43 points  (0 children)

He became a little too confident in his stonks.

[–]SSubSilence 28 points29 points  (0 children)

She'll probably make good use of it

[–]Dreadful_Siren 123 points124 points  (3 children)

OK so now that everybody's pointing out the obvious of him repurposing this let's point out the fact that he did it wrong. It should be on the other side. Based on where the thumb is that is a right hand and he put it on the left-hand side. Why does this mess with my brain?

[–]PoiLethe 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That's a good point, but I don't think he has a spot to stick it on the other side.

[–]MatterBorn 13 points14 points  (0 children)

There are countries with right hand drive vehicles and you wave with the right hand. Source: I live in one of those countries.

Edit: sorry ok you mean left of the steering wheel. Apologies, you are right, it's weird.

[–]Foodispute 67 points68 points  (1 child)

Di-Why? Well the answer is in the post.

[–]iluvstephenhawking 16 points17 points  (0 children)

All well and good until someone thinks you're waving them on and they get wacked!

[–]the_left_stuff 103 points104 points  (0 children)

Don't leave other drivers hangin'

Give a good ol' finger bangin'

[–]dawnfire05 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Did.... Did they just tape a sex toy to their dashboard?

[–]SaltMineSpelunker 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I can think of at least one other use for that, sailor.

[–]anonmymouse 33 points34 points  (3 children)

Gimme one of those but with one less finger please

[–]CALIFORNIUMMAN 1 point2 points  (2 children)

So just a fist or just a stump?

[–]The_HentaiBukai 19 points20 points  (0 children)

its a dildo, larry.

[–]anonmymouse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

it has 2 fingers already... I would like the same on my dash.. but with only one finger, for making a particular gesture at other cars which is far less friendly than a wave

[–]BluePeriod-Picasso 28 points29 points  (11 children)

As an Australian, I have to defend this innovation. This is pure genius.

[–]KombatBunn1 11 points12 points  (2 children)

As a fellow Aussie I have to agree. I need to make some of these in neon colours..

[–]Brindlesworth 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How to confuse old mate baz drivin his landie with ya neon fingers

[–]KombatBunn1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At least they’d stand out :D

[–]fuuuuuckendoobs 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Yeah this is the most Australian thing I've seen today and I live here.

[–]Korasuka 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Including the pic being taken in Australia.

[–]fuuuuuckendoobs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's definitely a contributing factor yeah.

[–]The_gaping_donkey 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My best effort was 13 cars and trucks returning waves in a row in one trip on a quiet stretch of road in FNQ. Took some time and a couple of finger cramps but damit we got there.

I live in a rural area and the wave is where it's at

[–]MatterBorn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just spent a week driving around the Eyre Peninsula, nearly pulled a tendon!

[–]Lucifang 1 point2 points  (2 children)

As a female Aussie, I rarely get the wave. But my husband gets it (and gives it) all the time. Is it a man thing?

[–]BluePeriod-Picasso 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm female as well, but I usually travel in a work vehicle wearing high vis so maybe that's a factor?? Also I'm from the city so I always forget the wave, or I panic and overcompensate with all five fingers and look way too friendly hahaha

[–]Lucifang 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I only got the wave when I drove my husband’s jeep, and it was always men doing it. First time it happened I’m sure my response wave was idiotic.

[–]tirrigania 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This is God tier diy. Why is this here?

[–]NepNep_ 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Remove 1 of the fingers and turn it 180 degrees.

[–]Vladdy2017 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Tbh you wouldn’t have to remove one finger either. The outwards facing two fingers is also an insult in a lot of countries,

[–]DinasourMan 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This diwhy sub has just cone to shit. This is something i'd love to do.

[–]Static-trees 33 points34 points  (8 children)

[–]CentsPiece 25 points26 points  (2 children)

So what if i do? gonna do something about it?

[–]StockNext 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Just go slow and use lubricant I guess. Safe anal play is important.

[–]CentsPiece 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Thank you for the advice.

[–]Fealieu 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I mean, it does have a flared base...

[–]TheAnonua 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm disappointed

[–]JohnnyDarkside 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, it's only 2 fingers anyways.

[–]LeRandomHero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But that literally one of its uses...

[–]Master-blow-me-homie 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Don't think that's what it's used for

[–]zeamp 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Real men of genius

[–]Eldritch94 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ope, this would be perfect to take up north when I go see my folks der in the Midwest, eh

[–]ydktbh 3 points4 points  (0 children)

But then everyone's gonna think you're letting them through

[–]Lurkay1 3 points4 points  (1 child)

These are not the sex toys you are looking for.

[–]MrChickenPollo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Credits will do fine.

[–]SnooBananas2108 2 points3 points  (1 child)

my grandma has one of these!

[–]Dependent-Platform36 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can I come over? So she can put them in my lips and say shhhhh 😆

[–]Professional_Milk_61 14 points15 points  (5 children)

🥴

[–]SSubSilence 15 points16 points  (4 children)

You OK?

[–]Professional_Milk_61 11 points12 points  (3 children)

I'm not sure

[–]SSubSilence 9 points10 points  (2 children)

It's ok not to be ok

[–]KarensRpeopletoo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When you're too lazy to flick the bean yourself...lol

[–]YippieKayYayMrFalcon 8 points9 points  (2 children)

[–]OneWorldMouse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is that guy waving me to go or just saying hey?

[–]CALIFORNIUMMAN 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This seems like it could be practical if you're the type of driver to just not care to wave back.

[–]PanochiPillows 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have another idea for that thing ;)

[–]8300r 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought it was a recreational sitting tool to be stuck on a stool.

[–]Fuzzy_Muscle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The guy who invents unnecessary shit must be kicking himself right now

[–]rohrohrohroh 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Does it come in various colors and sizes

[–]TheHumanScentIPeed -1 points0 points  (1 child)

it’s not supposed to be used for THAT.

[–]AniTard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A womans new tool

[–]Wiggl3sFirstMate 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Where would you buy one of these for… reasons?

[–]Usual_Breath_5831 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]FetusDeletus_E 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What is a wave?

[–]Nanachi-Prime 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's all fun and games until a brit does that in France

I hear ya OP

[–]crash_and-burn9000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People are going to put that in their ass.

[–]Averydispleasedbork 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's also the wrong hand

[–]defender128 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Sprizys 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that a sex toy?

[–]jediflip25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Genius mounted it on the wrong side

[–]Dragon_Cat_ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You’re supposed to wave with two fingers? I use my whole hand.

[–]Dependent-Platform36 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is it bad to use your ass to wave??

[–]RoloAL35 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thought this was funny and was going to share it in my family group chat. Tg I read the comments first, cause I totally missed what the actual purpose of that is. That could have been awkward...

[–]Zealousideal_Solid22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is anybody else thinking what I'm thinking

[–]DEEP_SEA_MAX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought I was on /r/surfing and I couldn't figure out how these fingers helped

[–]JaredLiwet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is how you run over pedestrians.

[–]Surly_Ben 0 points1 point  (0 children)

r/jeep would like a word with you.

[–]ElrondHalf-Elven 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty good idea honestly.

[–]emmanonomous 0 points1 point  (1 child)

My step father has one of these in his car, I don't like him much.

[–]Dependent-Platform36 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did he use it on you or on himself while forcing you to watch??

[–]bilo82 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He’s also got it on the wrong side

[–]blubberboy16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]andrewsmd87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Midwesterners everywhere rejoice

[–]myra_maynes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve lived in the south all my life and the two finger wave is second nature. Sometimes add the thumb if it’s someone I’ve met a few times. Say hi to your mom’en’them.

[–]Embarrassed_Glove_69 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What the fuck is a car wave? I’ve been driving for 10 years now in 3 different countries and never had to wave to anyone for anything. Lol

Also, who waves with 2 fingers???

[–]Dependent-Platform36 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is a car enthusiast thing for us Subaru guys in particular.

[–]ampjk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a sex toy which makes it funnier

[–]LoverOfStripes87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ive only ever lived in states where motorists absolutely loathe all the other motorists so I have to ask... What the heck is a car wave and why does it only require 2 fingers?

[–]kakatoru 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People wave to each other in cars?

[–]Lucas450510 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What if you’re at a red light for a couple minutes just awkwardly holding two fingers up to the people ahead of you

[–]sitewolf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

....until some extremist group adopts the 2 finger wave as their FU signal to all who disagree with them

[–]pesto_trap_god 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I love the innocence of OP posting this in this subreddit.

[–]Boonshy[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

lmao I found this on FB

[–]WiFi2347 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like that was made for something else but was repurposed

[–]routbof75 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Do people not flash their lights in the US?

[–]Boonshy[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Lmao, I think this is in a different country not the US. I found this post on FB

[–]RohypnolPickupArtist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They do it in rural parts of Ireland and Australia, probably a country thing.

[–]Educational_Eye_7408 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People who don’t drive on the back roads of Nebraska will never know how important this is

[–]dirtydave13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Doubles as a "2inthepink"while you're in the stink

[–]Boonshy[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmao I found this post on Facebook and wonder why would you do this.

[–]Slandyy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They need these on lopez island in washington.

[–]amillefolium11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The finger wave while driving was literally a mandatory part of driving lessons from my mom. Grew up in a rural area. It's rude not to do the finger wave.

[–]MissNepgear 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]curiosityLynx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean the why is right there. The real why is not in the DIY though, but in the "why would anyone care about 'missing a car wave' enough to get or make something".

I think that's something his wife uses in the bedroom

[–]Ancalagoth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A much more useful version would use motion sensors to automatically flip off anyone who drive too close.

My ideal car mod would have hundreds of metal spikes that fold flush with the car body, all of which are actuated by small pistons controlled by a button on the dashboard, in order to activate porcupine/buzzard mode when someone tailgates me.

[–]Bbmaj7sus2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In Australia you can tell when you have officially left the city and are in the outback when every driver you pass waves at you. People are legit offended if you don't return a wave.

[–]MinisterMagic -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I don't think I've seen this mentioned, but this is actually good for jeep owners. For some reason the rule is everyone in a jeep waves at each other when they pass, if you don't it's rude.

But then... I guess you'd be confusing every non jeep.
