WWII Veterans Give ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Crew The Finger, Continue To Be Greatest Generation

To honor the 70th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, a group of 24 World War II veterans associated with a Denver-based group called The Greatest Generation Foundation went to Hawaii recently to pay their respects. Unfortunately, the ceremony they tried to hold at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific was repeatedly interrupted by a crew filming CBS’s updated version of “Hawaii Five-0.” The crew apparently traipsed around the cemetery, did not pay their respects when “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played, and at one point even shushed the group of veterans. So, the group did what millions of intelligent TV viewers have wanted to do for years, and gave CBS the finger.

The obscene gesture was delivered in unison from a bus as they were leaving, and left them all in stitches of laughter.

Mr Tubbs said: ‘This was immature of me, but I said, “Gentlemen, if you so choose, how about we give them one big one-fingered military salute?”’

The last thing the production crew saw, he said, was a bunch of 90-year-old men flipping the bird at them. ‘It was one of the priceless moments of my life.’ [Daily Mail]

Dear Lord, that is fantastic. I hope they swing by the set of “Two and a Half Men” next.
