Slang for showing someone the middle finger.
Originally a taunt created by the English. During wars between the French and the English, the French would cut of the English captives' middle fingers to disable their bowmen. English bowmen would show French soldiers their middle finger to mean, "you didn't get me."
Eventually evolved (in America only) to mean "Up yours," and later switched definitions to "F*** you."

the middle finger gesture started as far back as the middle ages. It was because archers (if I spelt it wrong big fucking deal) when captured got their middle fingers cut off. So enemy soilders walking by would give them this gesture showing they still had theirs. The middle finger was used for accuracy in shooting one.

The finger is often nicknamed the middle finger or pulling the bridge. Raising the middle finger, the longest one, is a physical gesture saying, 'Fuck you!' or 'Fuck off!' or anything along those lines. AVGN does that out of frustration and anger, as his name implies.
Person 1: *raises the finger at Person 2*

Person 2: What the hell did you do that for?!

Person 1: I didn't know! I swear!

Person 2: *sigh* Whatever. *whispers to self* Liar.

Although the bow and arrow stories are nice they are incorrect. The finger was originated by an English king who used to make the gesture to potential brides, meaning 'would you like me to fuck you?'. He would do this to see their reactions. The middle finger and the wrist would move almost as a signal to come closer. This gesture became popular among all and was used jokingly.
The king motioned for the young girl by giving her the finger.
