"Truth is truth. To the end of reckoning".
Rocky; “it ain't how hard you hit; IT'S ABOUT HOW HARD YOU CAN GET HIT and KEEP moving FORWARD. HOW MUCH YOU CAN TAKE, and KEEP moving FORWARD. That's HOW winning IS done. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her,or anybody. COWARDS DO THAT and that ain't you. You're better than that!

Don't really know. I don't mind some one giving me the bird... it is free food. I usually get to flip the bird because my wife is always running around and if I don't do it, it is usually black on one side because I like it cooked in a little bit of olive oil so it is real brown on the sides and crunchy. I live in a place where nobody has guns but the bad guys so I usually get the bird already shot so I haven't got to shoot the bird since my pheasant hunting days in Indiana.

Here is a video of the first 2 minutes after the FFF folks get to Heaven
In nursery school we'd sing a little song... maybe you did too... where you held up each finger one at a time and sang along:
"Where is Thumb-kin? Where is Thumb-kin?
Here I am! Here I am!
How are you today, sir?
Very well, I thank you.
Run and hide... Run and hide!"
"Where is Pointer? ..."
"Where is Middle Finger?... "
"Where is Ring Finger?..."
"Where is Pinky?... "
"Where is everybody?..."
Never gave a second thought about it.
As for providing proof for the F-you meaning of the gesture, I can only offer anecdotal proof. More often than not, if I am earshot of the person offering me the gesture, it is verbally accompanied with the afore-mentioned term.

I've never heard the expression. News to me.
