Flip the Bird

While I was trimming Dove’s fingernails this past weekend (since, apparently, fingernail clippers do not exist in Hickville, along with soap and shampoo and other basic tools of hygiene), Dove chose the moment to offer me some multicultural education.

She stuck out her pinky finger and informed me, “That is how you flip the bird in Chinese.” 

She proceeded to speak to me in textbook-perfect Chinese…okay, it sounded more like she was clearing her throat or reading backwards, but it was still quite impressive.  Hey, I can’t flip the bird in a foreign language and speak in Chinese at the same time.  Can you?
