I'll work on the name.

For those that don't know, this gesture is referred to as "flashing the v" (among other names for it) and is essentially the same as flipping someone off. There might be subtle differences between the two, but they're both offensive and insulting, so in the end the result is the same.

For me, this one has much more comedy associated with it. But that goes back to WW2, when the Queen of England was speaking to the crowd and flashed them a V for Victory. Or so she thought. Being raised so isolated, she never realized that reversing the side of the hand like that gives quite the different meaning.

I was entirely unaware of that, thank you. I need to spend tonight at work catching up on your stuff. After seeing you came back I kept putting it off and putting it off.

The general tale in the UK is that it came about as a result of the French chopping the first two fingers off English bowman prisoners. Wikipedia says it's BS, but interesting to see the different tales of origin.
