It dates back to the hundred years war

At that time the English Bowmen were the a deadly threat to the French so when they were captured the French cut off the two bow fingers

It thus became a taunt to the French for the English bowmen to show them their two fingers to prove they were still a threat

two fingers p means f***k off, and one finger p means wank*r

Why do the two fingers get to the middle of the meter stick at the same time?

There is feedback mechanism going on all the time the fingers are moving. Friction between the fingers and the wooden stick is proportional to the weight of the stick at the point above the fingers. If the right hand finger moves towards the centre it reduces the weight directly above the left finger because there is now more wood to the right of the right finger. The decrease in friction above the left finger causes it to slip and move towards the centre. The process is now reversed and the right finger now starts to move. The two fingers end up at the centre of mass of the stick by an unseen oscillation of moments.
