    We don’t use that “up-yours” sign, we use the middle finger as well (we’re way too Americanised)

    And “we” is?

    I’m guessing British, Sara’s a Brit and she said they don’t use that because it’s too easily confused with a peace sign, especially at a distance. So most Brits nowadays use “the bird”

    The Italian one is called the “malocchio” or “Mal Occhio” better known as “the evil eye”. It’s not obscene in the same way as the others which all have dicks, or asses or vaginas involved in their meaning.
    It’s never good though. If you get one put on you, call my Aunt Mary. She’ll take care of it.

    No, the italian one is called “corna” or “horns” and it means that your woman is cheating on you.
    The one called “malocchio” it’s pretty the same gesture, but it’s done pointing the fingers horizontally.

    High fives, okays and thumbs up are offensive. Neat.

    The greek one is legit. As far as I could understand it, it was like if it’s rude to point, then pointing 5 fingers is really rude. It’s not sexualized like the middle finger is, though. At soccer games you see alot of people, doing a double handed version, one hand over the other, when angry.
