D'oh!

One finger, 'The Bird', had always meant 'up yours' in my swede. Two fingers, flagging somebody off, has never had a specific verbal connotation and is used to reflect a silent but intangible ill-feeling. If i'm particularly miffed I turn the two fingers around mid-gesture and mime jabbing the fingers into the recipient's eyes.
