iandc said:Other way round, palm in nails out is the FO gesture, palm out is the victory (or peace) gesture. Winnie was famous for his Victory gesture so I'd say that the picture's been doctored
He actually switched half way through the war when he learned that it was considered a vulgar gesture by some.
It's actually called the bowfinger as an insult ... legend has it goes back to the medieval times. The English bowmen were reknowned and deadly so deadly in fact the French got into the habit of cutting off their two fingers when captured. The English bowmen when facing the French would give them the bowfinger ... saying see I have them so you bastards now pay.
Bowfinger was also a movie by Steve Martin with Eddie Murphy ... implying up yours Hollywood.
So what was this thread topic about ... ?
ps ... that signature gif is a little much ... sure going to fill up the forum pretty quick if you post a lot.
