'I think it's my wife's finger,' I sobbed. 'Like a ransom demand thing.'
He peered at the finger, looking slightly queasy.
'She has very hairy knuckles, your wife.' He said

'And very large hands for a woman.' He looked at me. 'She's not a transsexual or something is she? I mean, I don't mind. I just don't want to cause offence.'
