** OlderThanDirt, actually. One of the bodies found in the Danish marshes, dating from the early Iron Age, held her fist in the "fig" position. This was the "Girl from Egtvedt".

"Flipping the Bird", or "the Finger" as it is also known (among other names), is the act of raising one's middle finger upwards while keeping the rest of the fingers bent at the first joint or curled tight into the palm of the hand. For added expression, the participant should extend the arm to its full length and raise slightly above the shoulder line, perform this movement in a one sharp movement to add complete indignation to the gesture. Its name comes from the way the hand forms the shape of an upward-turned bird, but its obscenity comes from the way it resembles a phallus. For added effect, one can {{Dual Wield|ing}} the gesture in what is sometimes called the "Double Deuce."

** The titular villains use a slight variation of the ''bras d'honneur'' as a ''salute''. Which means they greet their President (played by Creator/MelBrooks) with an insult, which he then returns in kind ([[CouldSayItBut which is probably what Americans and their government would really like to tell each other]]).
