: : The term 'Peel the finger'. I believe it means "shame on you", I would like to know if anybody else has heard of it.

: No. But there is a "shame on you" gesture that, now that you mention it, looks like peeling a finger.

Interesting. Never heard the phrase, but the gesture does indeed look like that.
