Perhaps you'd like to look at an illustrated guide to "Flippin' The Bird" in other cultures...
This page is part of an actual book about Giving the Finger...I bought it for my stepdad a few years back and it was actually pretty funny.
(He himself favors the 'right hand on bicep slap, left hand forcefully jabbing middle finger skywards' technique. I myself prefer the "Peeling The Banana" move, and my brother is a proponent of the "Middle Finger Nose Scratch". We are a classy and charming family.)
I am re-reading P.G. Wodehouse (if you haven't read him- do yourself a favor and do it- do it now) and I notice he uses the term "the bird" when someone gets the brushoff...his usage is more of a sentiment than a gesture...I don't think the fine scholars at Ooze magazine noticed that historical tidbit of info however...

Back when our Blogger thing was broken I snagged this picture taken of a rare rhino...but I can't remember anything about it! Still- it's a great picture...

I'm pimping my aunt Gloria's shop and product line, Lanikai Bath and Body. When K and I were in Oahu last time I bought a zillion of their products- they are amazing. The scents are incredible- fresh and not chemically at all. The lotions keep you moisterized but they aren't greasy or wierd. Everything is made in Hawaii also, using lots of native plants. I'm kinda thinking Glo should open a store here in Seattle...

anyway- the good news is I may have found a picture that surpasses "Hot Dog Eating Cat" in sheer awesomeness.
Behold:
