I was fooled by FOR UNKNOWN CARNAL KNOWLEDGE [F$CK U] gesture

I grew up with my friends knowing the middle finger gesture symbolizes a profound and derogatory sentiment that meant FUCK YOU.  It was easier to stick our middle finger in the air towards someone that we disagreed with and it was the society norm to stick their middle finger up at anyone which symbolized their anger and frustration without saying a bloody word.  The gesture however has a geopolitical definition and you going to be surprise when you read our link.  GluFm Team!!

 

The History of the Middle Finger: By Ray Johnson  May 30, 2015

 

Well, now......here's something I never knew before, and now that I know it, I feel compelled to send it on to my more intelligent friends in the hope that they, too, will feel edified.

Before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the French, anticipating victory over the English, proposed to cut off the middle finger of all captured English soldiers. Without the middle finger it would be impossible to draw the renowned English longbow and therefore they would be incapable of fighting in the future. This famous English longbow was made of the native English Yew tree, and the act of drawing the longbow was known as 'plucking the yew' (or 'pluck yew').

Much to the bewilderment of the French, the English won a major upset and they began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at the defeated French, saying, See, we can still pluck yew! Since 'pluck yew' is rather difficult to say, the difficult consonant cluster at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodentalfricative 'F', and thus the words often used in conjunction with the one-finger-salute! It is also because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows used with the longbow that the symbolic gesture is known as 'giving the bird.'

And yew thought yew knew every plucking thing. Didn't yew!!
