  • Faltó la de "culillo", con la forma similar a la de "tetiado" pero abriendo y cerrando la mano, para retar a alguien o decirle que es un cobarde

  • jajaja Muy buenas, le sumaría "Pistola" o "ni por el chiras": poniendo el dedo pulgar entre el ínidice y el corazón al cerrar el puño: Para significar que uno no está dispuesto a algo, casi siempre acompañado de "¿Sí? ¡vea!" (hay otro gesto pero menos diplomático) y el de "está loco o no sabe de lo que está hablando" haciendo el gesto de estar enrrollando un hilo con el dedo índice a lo largo de la oreja.
