The big story is why this is a story at all. I watch the show and Simon is constantly leaning on one finger or the other or his hand. If not that he is always doing something, not obscene, with his hands. If anyone is guilty of anything its the producers or network for not just panning away or blacking out the questionable segment. At no time that I was watching did Simon seem to be trying to emphasize his finger as an obscene gesture. Category: Blown out of Proportion.
