When someone rubs their finger and thumb back and forth as if they were playing the world's smallest violin, possibly making fake violin noises with their mouth. A predominantly Western gesture, the World's Smallest Violin is given to a person who is exaggerating the sorrow of his/her predicament in order to gain sympathy; the person who does the giving presumably has none. There are other, [[FlippingTheBird much more rude, hand gestures available]] to tell someone they're being an ass, but the violin is more sophisticated. It plays on the idea that [[{{Wangst}} wangsty]] characters expect the Warsaw Symphony to pop up out of nowhere to provide some background for their soliloquies. This gesture is rare both in real-life and in fiction. Usually it will be given by the DeadpanSnarker, possibly villainous.

** Fat Tony, having won the prized violin of Krusty's daughter in a poker game, does this when Krusty begs him to give it back. Then he goes "Oh wait, now I can do it for real", pulls out the violin and actually starts playing it (quite well, too).
