In China, the middle finger gestural equivalent is the same move we use here for, "I've got your nose!" I can't tell you how difficult it was, once I found that out, to not run around the countryside stealing people's noses. I didn't, because that would not be in the interest of fostering intercultural harmony (or at least, in the interest of not getting run out of town by crowds with sticks). But it was a near thing.
