No single GIF better represents my days than Mr. Roger's throwing the double bird with a giant smile on his face. I never once bothered to doubt its legitimacy, but a friend asked me if it was real. Of course it is.
Here is the story:
For many years, rumors have gone around that Fred McFeely Rogers (Mr. Rogers) flipped kids off on his tv show.
The truth is, he did…inadvertently.
