      Never realized that was a uniquely American gesture.

      It's actually two in the pink, one in the stink. Although what you said could be an interesting variation to the traditional method.

      I agree that flicking sounds odd.

      I've always heard, and used, flipping someone the bird. Flicking usually goes with boogers
