It should be done, drunk, or sober, when one is drinking a cup of tea.

Preferably Earl Grey, or Darjeeling.

If it's "Yorkshire Tea" then pick your nose!

unconscious human defense mechanism. When you take a drink, you are often putting a drinking receptacle in front of your eyes, blocking your vision momentarily. Therefore, your weakest and most expendable finger automatically sticks out to detect any danger lurking around your face while your vision is blocked. You feel safer and less vulnerable with your finger sticking out while taking a drink.

It allows the tendon of the pinkie to be slack, therfore creating better coordination and mobility, as the glass is lifted and manuvuered.
And I need all I can get. Don't ask me what time it is when I'm drinking; I will look at my watch, and -lookout.

Because the pinkie is not as long as the other fingers and does not grasp as well, thus getting in the way. So it is natural to lift it out of the way... everybody does it whether they have been taught to do it or not, just watch...

When a "straight" man does it, it means he's drunk enough to "go gay".

My ma taught me to put it under the glass when I drank. Don't ever recall dropping a glass as a kid. Taught my kid the same thing. He'll knock a glass over at the dinner table in a heartbeat, but never dropped one. (works for beer bottles too.) Try it with your little ones!
