â†µIncredibly, when a discussion of crooked fingers transpires on TNT's Inside the NBA, Charles Barkley doesn't think twice before displaying his jacked-up middle finger to Ernie Johnson. I know, you're probably stunned, too. â†µ
â†µBut the more amusing part of the moment is Sir Charles' complete unwillingness to excuse the gesture. â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥Johnson: "Do me a favor, say 'April Fool!'" â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥Barkley: "Fool! What?" â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥Johnson: "No, just say April Fool, for what you just did, that you were trying to be funny." â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µâ‡¥Barkley: "Oh! (displays pinky) Any finger will do!" â†µâ‡¥
â†µThis isn't the first time Barkley's been inappropriate on air and unrepentant about it. It probably won't be the last, either. â†µâ†µ
