I know there are people from all over the world in the pit, so I was wondering what some of the offensive hand gestures are where you live, all we really have in canada is the good ol' "middle finger"

Originally it meant Victory after the war, it's sort of mutated over the years to "fuck off/you"

Possibly apocryphal, but it is often said to have a lot to do with the French cutting off those two fingers when they captured English soldiers, to prevent them from using a bow again.
Once again, possibly apocryphal, but I can't be arsed checking.

EDIT: there's also the good old 'wanker' or 'c0cksucker' ones.

really? I've heard of this from your part of the world, but I thought that it was because captured archers had those two fingers cut off so scots would hold them up proud like "look what I still got you Limey wankers"

Edit: Doh, bad timing and wrong facts FTL

Lay arms flat in front of you, put the wrist of your left hand onto the joint of the right arm, and move your right arm towards your head, ensuring the right fist is closed at all times.

Tha's where it comes from, showing the french that they still had their fingers. A sort of up yours to the french.

In some of continental Europe there's one where you bite your thumbnail and pull the thumb away sharply

Middle finger, balling up your fist and shaking it sideways(does not mean wanking, means getting ****ed in the arse), balling up both fists and bringing them together(like this: nmmn) and then making a motion with them as though you were breaking a tube(u kno wat tube)

actually, it comes from when the english longbowmen were captured by french soldiers - the french would cut off their index and middle fingers, and so the intact longbowmen would taunt the french by giving them the vicky.

thats why the french understand it as well

Middle Finger
the vs
Poking one side of the inside of your mouth with your tongue and making a sort of 'wanking' hand shape at the other side (shoud look like your pushing something (somehow) against the inside of your cheek
Just making a wanking gestuer in the air

In some of continental Europe there's one where you bite your thumbnail and pull the thumb away sharply

To contribute to the thread, there's the middle finger, the 2 fingers, the wanker thing, and that's about it.

It's not like fish mount each other. Eggs are laid, the eggs are thusly fertilised. No sex involved.

How could that possibly be considered a hand gesture.
#39
I always wondered how a culture came up which gestures are deemed offensive...

...modes and scales are still useless.

I'm pretty sure that's true, they cut off those two fingers to stop them from using longbows, and when the English won this particular battle that they were insanely outnumbered in all the longbowman stuck their two fingers up at the french
