Etzba Elokim

I'm a couple weeks late with this. As is well known, when it came to the plague of lice, the Egyptian magicians said 'etzba Elokim hi'. This is normally translated 'it is the finger of God'. If I was doing the translating (and was given poetic/Midrashic license) I would translate it as 'God is giving us the finger'.
