According to the New York Post, five-year-old Ella, of Essex, England spent the a large majority of her school Christmas playing flipping of the audience, even throwing Kid Rock-esque double birds at one point.
Although according to mom, Ella is the angel that she appears to be. She wasn’t flipping off the audience at all. In fact, she doesn’t even know what that means. She was trying to show her mom a painful hangnail that was bothering her.
“The performance was about half-an-hour long, and I would say 70 percent of it she had her middle finger up. I was thinking, ‘Oh God, Ella please stop.’ Because she was doing it so innocently, I think most people were thinking, ‘Oh, bless her.’ ”
And while mom tried to get her to stop, she wasn’t having it.
“It was so funny because she didn’t realize what she was doing. I had to keep mouthing ‘Put your finger down,’ discreetly, but then I just accepted that she was going to be standing there with her finger up.”
A likely story mom… we all know where she learned that one.
Then again, that’s exactly how I felt when my parents made me do the church Christmas play…
Bless mason and Ella in their school play, it’s just a shame Ella spent the whole time trying to show me she’d hurt her middle finger 🤦🏻♀️😂😂 pic.twitter.com/Vab6T0pL4Y
