This children's(?) book is using mūdra (手印) to make some eastern vs. western jokes:

little tarzan

The guy says:


Little Tarzan!

and sticks up his middle finger.

Is "Little Tarzan!" a real mūdra? What does it mean? What's it's usage?

    While I don't know the answer, it might be helpful to note that, it's not just sticking up middle finger... the other four fingers are touching in a funny way. – Zuoanqh Apr 19 '18 at 13:27
