This is a you deserve it all the way. Mazel tov to your friend.
Wait. Why is the hunger game symbol bad enough to elicit that response?
#30, that is not all the Nazi salute is. Do you really know what it is? An awful symbol to Jewish people and the like who suffered under such horrible ruling. Especially to the older generation (or current, whatever) who are unaware of The Hunger Games and the true meaning of the salute OP was actually trying to imitate.
No 35 you misunderstand, I wasn't commenting on the symbolism behind the nazi salute, just the physical aspect of it. In the hunger games, they raise a hand with three fingers up and the index and thumb curled in toward the palm. A nazi salute is all fingers extended upward, held at eye level. It is in essence just raising your hand. They are in no way similar... But I suppose that you may have a point about older generations, though I don't see it myself.
#60 You had the description as thumb and index finger down, but that isn't right. The District 12 sign is for respect and admiration. Going by the book you take your left hand and with your thumb and pinky finger down, press the three middle fingers on your lips and then point your hand in the direction of the person. It doesn't necessarily have to be held just like the Nazi salute (which is the right hand), the movie just uses the right hand and portrays it that way, but in the book it is left hand only.
