LOOK AT ALL YE DANDY'S PRANCIN ABOOT WITH YOUR HEA
he he so i was in history class one day and my teacher just told us the origin of the middle finger soooooooo here it goes

during the middle ages, there was old weapons tecnology, u know long bows cross bows and so forth, well in the middle ages if a archer of the long bow got caught by the enemie, they would get thier pointer finger and thier middle finger choped off (they cut those fingers off because those fingers are the one that pulls the string back so it was a very important fingers) so when they got choped off they could never shoot with the long bow again, well
in the hundred years war (in europe)there was a battle (can't remeber the battle)and when the battle was finished, the wining side put there pointer finger and middle finger up at the same time to show they still have thier fingers cause they didnt get captured (and it was also to show the losing side ha ha nah nah u suck =P) so anyways from then on it was a sign of offense witch evolved to just the middle finger we all know and love and use verey often :D

he he just giving ya a fun fact ^-^

Well, I never heard this story before. I'll have to ask my history teacher. My Hsty teacher is a genious. Not only does he teach our top high school classes but he also teaches at Sacred Heart University in CT, USA at nights. He knows EVERYTHING about history.
