A (two fingered salute) to the good ol' 'V'... 08:26 - May 18 with 2006 viewsSlambo

No-one seems to do it anymore, only the single, brashly erect middle finger, or - even worse - the American middle finger, where the thumb sticks right out and the index and ring fingers are crooked slightly down (google 'Eminem giving the finger')...

Sigh. Give me a good ol' British 'V' any day, thrust defiantly upwards, whilst blowing a robust raspberry. Proper...

It just shows the sad erosion of our heritage, I'm afraid.

Takes me back to coach trips in my school days...

Flicking the Vs at passing motorists/truckers was seen as good-natured tomfoolery, and almost smiled upon.

Flipping the bird was just obscene.

Always makes me laugh when Homer Simpson gets away with saying W*nker because it means nothing to people in the states. He usually says it when he's impersonating an English person

I am not convinced the rude V-sign (palm facing in) has ever been in continuous use.
Churchill seemed to do his victory sign the same way round.
Isn't it alleged to date from English archers showing they hadn't had their arrow drawing fingers cut off by the French.
Then again it's equally as likely something sexual.

I'm also a big fan of the double 'V', Vs pointing downwards so they're almost horizontal, hopping lightly from foot to foot going AAAAAAAHHHHH...

I still use the V when driving, nothing calms the rage more than a snap of the wrist and a VUCK YOU to send a boy racer on their way

Words are a medium that reduces reality to abstraction for transmission to our reason, and in their power to corrode reality inevitably lurks the danger that the words will be corroded too. It might be more appropriate, in fact, to liken their action to excessive stomach fluids that digest and gradually eat away the stomach itself.

That's a myth, and you need more than two fingers to draw a longbow anyway.
