So, Belshazzar and his buddies are eating with some of the finest flatware from Jerusalem. As soon as Belshazzar raises his glass to the lord of flatware, God makes his hand appear and writes "You are an ass" with his middle finger. Later that night, someone rubs Belshazzar out. No one suspects God's disembodied hand. That's where the phrase "rubbing one out" comes from.
