Save the V Sign – your country needs you

by | 6th, July 2012

THE people of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland: Save the V Sign as the hand gesture of first resort:

The V Sign – two-fingered salute – is being destroyed by the single raised middle finger, a symbol of American cultural imperialism. The V Sign user is blessed with a mind steeped in history. They are sensitive to nuance. This is swearing with a light, deft touch. Save it before it it gone for ever.

Say no to tosspot drivers, cyclists and football fans showing the ‘sit on it’ finger. Two fingers. We demand the full two fingers. If you are going to swear put some effort into it!

As bad are the celebrities and rappers who signal with two fingers unaware of its true meaning. 

Post your V sign photos and storis to Anorak’s Facebook page. Sign the petition.

Here’s a ¬†gallery of people getting it right and wrong:
