The answer to last week’s puzzle was: The digits of the hand!

The first is needed to make quotes you see,
And it often sticks up when it’s time for noon tea. (Pinky finger because you hit the ” key on a keyboard with your pinky finger and people often raise their pinky finger when drinking tea!)

The second’s biggest distinction is found
Bearing the symbol of love that is bound. (The ring finger wears a wedding ring!)

The third should be biggest but that can depend,
Never standing alone or it may offend. (The middle finger is the longest finger (in most cases) and can be quite the rude gesture!)

The fourth is oft used when making a selection
Or if you should need a gun for protection. (The index finger is used to point and pull the trigger of a gun!)

The fifth is the fattest and oddest by far,
And can sometimes be found in a wrestling war. (The thumb! Because who hasn’t ever declared a “thumb war” :))
