    Well, I’m TOTALLY jealous of this one! I was a Laugh-In freak and have a few flying fickle finger of fate pieces of memorabilia but never saw this cup.

    The packaging still looks in perfect shape.

    As you got this from a former cast member do you know if this was something that was made specially for them and never appeared on the commercial market? From the label on the bottom it looks like it may have been a commercial product.

    Also, it looks tiny. How tall is the actual cup?

    One way or another, a fantastic find!

      it’s big…8 inches tall, the packaging makes me think it was either a gift given away from the show or a store item, though i’ve never seen one anywhere ever…i can’t explain here the circumstances it was gotten under…

    I am very jealous of this kitsch…how often do I say, “you deserve the fickle finger of fate award” and I am regarded as an absolute crazy person. If I had this actual award to show these young’ns they might stop laughing at me and start laughing WITH me!

    I have the very same cup! I was going to put it for sale on ebay….but, if you know of someone interested in purchasing it, I would rather sell it to someone like you, who would appreciate it more! Don’t know if that is allowed on this site……let me know please! Thanks!

        idk, make me an offer. not sure how we should do this, but i do have a pay pal account. i just took pics of mine to show you. mine is still in the original packaging, but the packaging isn’t in the best shape, as you will see in the pics. i was going to take it out for pics, but realized it had never been out of pkg., so i left it in pkg. i will put them on w/ my profile pics in a few….hopefully.

          Easiest would be if you posted the photos here at AWMOK. https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/how-to-submit/. The submissions are seen in the order I publish them so no one has seen that Fickle Finger for at least a year.
          As far as selling it goes, I have the largest collection of kitsch in the world and am strictly a bargain hunter. I could go $15 but that’s it. If that’s not satisfactory, you should still post it here as it’s a great item and aKitschionados here love Laugh-In.
