Finger Post (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Finger Post

A parson: so called, because he points out a way to others which he never goes himself. Like the finger post, he points out a way he has never been, and probably will never go, i.e. the way to heaven.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
