A little jog on/Hot Fuzz reference. Have I missed something? I thought it was just something thye did in Hot Fuzz, but CAD seems to think it's a typically British thing...

It's a fairly common phrase. The first time I heard it widely referenced in pop culture wasn't after 'Hot Fuzz', but rather a couple of years earlier when Maxwell started using it during arguments in Big Brother. It became somewhat of a catchphrase along with Saskia's "at the end of the day it's dog eat dog, end of".

I think it's largely a London/Essex thing.

Or do you mean specifically the blowing a raspberry and flicking the Vs thing? I think that's relatively widespread too, but I can't think of an instance where they've been brought together on screen before. It takes a work of art like la Fuzz to bring such a powerful statement and striking image together.

I'd guess in the comic they're specifically referencing Hot Fuzz, but I'd consider both the comment and gesture to be quintessentially English.

Well, I know 'jog on' is a phrase, although I only know one person who ever says it. But blowing a rasberry a flicking a V? Never really got that as a thing that people do, unless they're maybe 10 or something, although nowadays they'd probably throw a rock at you or knife you instead. And that combined with Jog on, I didn't think of as being anything anyone really does, on screen or off, it was just a comedy I've got nothing better to say kind of thing. As for either being quintessentially english, I wouldn't have said so.

The quintessential thing was a bit of a gag, as it's usually the sort of thing said about the Boat Race or jam and scones. Flicking the Vs and blowing raspberries are both very, very English things to do in my opinion (they remind me especially of Rik in 'The Young Ones') and they're both something I do a lot. I am childish and proud.

Flicking the Vs is very English.
No-one has given the Vs to anyone in Australia since about 1983.
It's all about the single middle finger here because for some reason it's seen as much ruder.

I never even see or hear of the Vs except from English people.

I always thought the Vs meant Fuck Off, but a single finger meant Up Yours and was therefore less rude. The middle finger seems more american to me.

I use it often, especially behind the wheel, because I feel it's less likely to overly-antagonize the target of my ire and still delivers personal satisfaction. biggrin.gif

Wiipedia agrees with me. I guess the sentiment remains the same though.

QUOTE (Wikipedia - Finger (Gesture))
In the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, the V sign (given with the back of the hand towards the recipient) serves a similar purpose (primarily "Fuck off"), whilst "the bird" is more often used for "up yours", "swivel on it", "sit and swivel on it" or "sit and spin".

laugh.gif You guys have the option of two gestures with one being less offensive. We just have the one FU.

"sit and spin" laugh.gif How quaint.

I always think of Fonzie when people say that, but I'm sure he didn't quite mean it that way.
