Fridge / Salad Fingers

Fridge Horror
  • Salad Fingers probably suffers from some severe dementia, psychosis or post traumatic stress disorder caused by "The Great War" he keeps referencing. He's constantly by himself, talking to finger puppets like they're his friends, and eating such things like the finger puppets, hair, and resorted to cannibalism.
    • He probably also developed his fetishes with pain, rusty metallic substances, and nettles, because that's all that's left.
  • Who do the hairs in episode 8 belong to?
    • Possibly Roger the Radio's wires...
  • The ending of episode 5. The shock of hearing another human voice after God knows how long drives poor Salad Fingers into a horrific Heroic B.S.O.D., huddling in a corner of his room while hallucinating the little girl's image, with empty, bloody eye-sockets, making more "mouth-words" at him. We never see her again after this. Now...why were her eyes gouged out like that? Was there a different kind of reaction that we didn't see?

Fridge Brilliance
  • The things Salad Fingers says into the toilet and what the other Salad Fingers says to the first form at least part of a conversation when put together. When put together, it follows as:
    First S.F.: Jeremy Fisher. I thought you were out fighting the great war.
    Second S.F./Jeremy Fisher(?): Pardon?
    First S.F.: I'd like a word with you.
    Second S.F.: I don't understand. What is this?
    First S.F.: I'm not one for accusations, but this one's CAST IRON. I've seen you tailgating my daughter with aspirations of deflowering her rose.
    Second S.F.: No! This isn't true! You've got the wrong bloke, squire!
    First S.F.: I don't make mistakes, comrade. This one's textbook.
  • Salad Fingers' fingers look how our hands would look without skin holding our fingers together. Go ahead and Google 'X-Rays Hands'. Doubles as a Fridge Horror.
    • However, Salad Fingers only has three fingers per hand, while we have five.
      • If going with the The End of the World as We Know It theory, then it might actually make sense, seeing that there are already people born with defects such as missing a finger on both hands. Radiation can cause mutations which could - in theory - make it possible for him to naturally have less fingers.
      • Alternatively, since we don't know how long that war had been ago, he might have lost fingers at some occurance, though it would be questionable how he managed to lose exactly two fingers on both hands.
