The numbers of people with missing fingers make the average 4.99 whatever. Everyone with 5 fingers on their right hand is above average.
Of course people in the rest of the UK have an average of 3.99 fingers on their right hand while the normal 4 is above average.
The mode would still be 4 (or 5 in your weird five fingered Norfolk example).
