Well actually it turns out that he didn't. The Boston Globe reported yesterday that Scalia had made "an obscene gesture under his chin." Later that day it was quickly cleared up that "It was a hand off the chin gesture that was meant to be dismissive," Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said. Uhh...ok.

The whole incident arose when Scalia was leaving Mass on Sunday at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross when the reporter asked the justice if he had to deal with much flak related to his conservative Roman Catholic beliefs, according to the Globe.

"You know what I say to those people?" Scalia said before making the gesture, according to the paper's account. "That's Sicilian." The move is made by placing the back of the fingers underneath one's chin and flicking them forward, is used by some Italians to express irritation.
