    Default The Real History Behind the Dirty Finger

    FW: The History Of the Middle Finger Salute

    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 be incapable of fighting in the future.


    This famous weapon 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 (duuuhhh) and began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at the defeated French, saying, "See, we can still pluck yew! "PLUCK YEW!"

    Since 'pluck yew' is rather difficult to say, the difficult consonant cluster at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodental fricative 'F', and thus the words often
    used in conjunction with the one-finger-salute are mistakenly thought to have something to do with an intimate encounter.

    It is also because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows used w/ the longbow that the symbolic gesture is known
    as "giving the bird."

    Meron pa.. Trivia sa symposium namin..

    The word fuck is an acronym. It means fornication under the consent of the king. During the old times, the king is the only one who has the power to have sex with other people. So, before an ordinary human will have sex with other, he/she will first ask permission from the king.

    Trivia lang.. Un..
