..thumbing their nose at the public.
I am not familiar with this particular idiom, what does it mean? I can sort of guess, but I am curious as to what 'thumbing a nose' even looks like, I
have never seen anyone do something like that.
Do you mean pushing your nose up so you can display nostrils better, or something?
I apologize for my ignorance, but it goes away if I can have some more knowledge.. I think.
I'll probably try to research this after writing this post, though.
EDIT: Oh! So THAT gesture is called 'thumbing the nose'?! I had all kinds of weird nose+thumb-combinations going on in my imagination.. it's that
simple gesture, where you put your thumb against your nose and leave your hand open and .. hm, now that I think of it, that doesn't really even make
sense. What is that supposed to even depict?
