Lindsay Lohan’s middle finger tells the judge what she really thinks

Hey, Lindsay Lohan -- passive aggressive much? A big deal was made of Lohan finally showing some respect to the court Tuesday by showing up on time, appropriately dressed, for the probation violation hearing that wound up pointing her toward a 90-day jail sentence followed by 90 days of in-patient rehab.

Upon further review, however, it seems the wayward starlet’s respect might have been -- shock of all shocks -- merely skin deep. Or perhaps only topcoat deep, as the nail on the middle finger of her left hand sported a custom design: the eminently respectful sentiment ' ... you’ -- fill in the blank yourself, you know you can -- inscribed against a groovy psychedelic background, legible right-side-up to anyone that middle finger might be aimed at.

Sure, maybe that’s just for telling off the paparazzi, but the only one it’s facing toward in this picture taken from court (here’s a closeup -- don’t click if you can live without cuss words) is Judge Marsha Revel.

Those who comment here regularly know that the Ministry doesn’t do the profanity thing for publication, but we do know what such words are for -- and we acknowledge that LiLo’s message was more respectful, relatively speaking, than ‘go ... yourself,’ or ‘I’m getting so ... by this whole proceeding, don’t they know I’m a star?’

But maybe ‘I totally ... up, and I’m sorry’ would’ve been more appropriate.
