why is it called giving the bird?
the finger doesn't look like a bird at all
be just curious
By the turn of the century, “bird” be also slang for various private body parts, including the penis.
It was apparently US military pilots who put the terms together to phone call the middle finger “giving the bird” in the 1960s.
the french began cutting off the middle fingers of the english...
during a big fighting, english men were surrounded and knowing they were gonna die put up there middle fingers, showing them they could still "phluck" them.. ph after that became the "f" sound, thats where the possession "f u" comes from.. while giving the middle finger...
that being said.. the arrows soaring from that distance looked like birds... henceforth giving people the bird.
get the message?
