The gesture of thethumb protruded between the pointer finger and middle fingerhas a variety of different meanings dating back nearly 8,000 years. In Central Asia where the term for it is rosehip, it is an obscene gesture not unlike the middle finger.It meanssex in Japan, thenumber 5 to the Maasai,the letter‘T’ in American Sign Language, and ‘got your nose’ to every 4-year-old I’ve ever encountered. -Ariana Boussard-Reifel
