This final note today, in which, if I have anything to say about it, you will hear the word “twerking” for the first and last time.

That’s what Miley Cyrus was doing the other night at the Video Music Awards. Go check it out on YouTube if you need reminding. Just remember, you can’t unsee things like that.

Cyrus pointedly used a big foam finger in her…dance, I guess you could call it. The foam fingers you see at sports events. Anyway, the guy who invented the foam finger told Fox Sports today: “I would say that she certainly misrepresented its intent to encourage team support.”

Yes she did.
