to flip the bird

Is that an idiom, an idiomatic expression or how would you classify that?
Is there a picturebehind it?

schm.. in Yiddish

I wonder, when and what for may shm... (probably yiddish) be used, like in the singsongwriter Nilson Schmilson´s name. Or was it an album of an unknown person? I don´t know. I guess it may be a way to express that Harry Nilson was an unimportant person. Thx from Bavaria.
