The middle finger was discovered in 1872 by John Middleflingus after an apple fell on his head. Now, it has become a custom for all young gentlemen to show their middle fingers at passing women as it represents their spine: long, straight and with a nail at the top.
The middle finger was voted 'Finger of the Year' by Finger magazine in 1990 and again in 2002.
Steven Hartt offered his middle finger to charity after his doctor told him he couldn't walk anymore.
