THIS GESTURE IS POPULAR ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES.
IT HAS THE SAME MEANING AND IS GIVEN THE SAME ALL
OVER. IT IS GIVEN BY CLOSING THE FINGERS AS IF
THEY WERE WRAPPED AROUND A STICK, EXTENDING THE
ARM, AND SHAKING THE FIST UP AND DOWN FROM THE
WRIST. THE GESTURE IS ALWAYS GIVEN TO ANOTHER
PERSON AND IT MEANS THAT THE PERSON IS A
JAG-OFF. I HAVE SEEN THIS GESTURE GOING AROUND
FOR AT LEAST 10 YEARS.
