FLANGIPROP is a colloquial term derived from phalanges.
As a noun: it describes primarily the middle digit of either hand which when extended appears to give digital direction which is propped up by the supporting thumb.
As a verb it describes the action of extending said digit as in ‘He flangipropped the maniac driving erratically down the main street.’
A Flangiprop has found respectability in present day society. At one time it denoted vulgarity, something used only by the uneducated, but since Presidents and Queens started expressing feelings by gesture, it has become fashionable.
