meaning of fingers

1. COBOL fingers /kohbol finggrz/ Reported from Sweden, a hypothetical disease one might get from coding in COBOL. The language requires code verbose beyond all reason see candygrammar; thus it is alleged that programming too much in COBOL causes ones fingers to wear down to stubs by the endless typing.
