Sticking two fingers up at somebody, flicking Vs.

A reference to the Norman invasion of England. When the Normans captured Anglo-Saxon archers, they would cut the archer's index and middle fingers off.

The opposite of the Midas touch. A person for whom everything turns to crap, if (s)he gets involved.

Named after jewellery magnate Gerald Ratner, who infamously declared his proudcts to be "total crap" and wouldn't last much "longer than a M&S {Marks & Spencer} prawn sandwich", during a speech to the Insitute of Directors (1991).
