What movie is this line from?

A coworker of mine brought up a line that seems very familiar but I couldn't place it, tried googling and it brought nothing...

Somebody sticks out there middle finger and says "this is for you" then with a screwy motion with the middle finger says "and this is for the horse you rode in on".

Thanks in advance.

Re: What movie is this line from?

Uhh..google search turned up with this:

I saw this in the movie Meatballs 2. The "bad guy" arrives on his horse and gets the middle finger twice. Once the conventional way and once with the hand parallel to the ground. The bad guy says "I know what this is" (demonstrating the conventional way), "but what's this"? (demonstrating parallel to the ground). That's when the first person says "this is for you" (demonstrating the conventional way), "and this is for the horse you rode in on" (demonstrating the parallel way).

That's the only time I've run across this; there could be other instances out there.

That actually sounds right. I remember that scene very well.

Thanks. That movie is so obscure though that I am not sure this person even saw that movie. I will ask her and report back.
