Rude English hand sign that derives from the middle ages. During the 100 years war the French would cut off the middle and index fingers of any English bowman so as they could never shoot again. The English would taunt the French by showing their fingers, so as to say "I can still shoot you Frog!" although todays meaning is more or less "fuck off you twat."
Is the trademark of rock star, Liam Gallagher but was also made popular during the second world war by Winston Churchill where it took on the meaning of V for Victory. It should not be confused with the piss-poor peace sign which is the reverse of it with the palm and fingers facing the viewer instead of the back of the hand.
Due to its historical relevance it should be particularly directed at the French and other historical enemies of the English.
"That cheeky bastard V Signed me"
1)Something Asians put up when they have their pictures taken.
May stem from Winston Churchill flashing the Victory sign after WWII.
In Japan the sign may have also become popular because of the post-WWII Allied occupation of Japan. Janet Lynn may have popularized its use in amature photographs when in the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo she fell, but still continued with a smile. Afterwards she flashed the V sign and the Japanese media eat it up.
2)A hand gesture in which the first and second fingers are raised and parted, whilst the remaining fingers are clenched. Generally considered a "Victory" sign, it can also carry connotations of "Peace" and "Defiance"
The Japanese school girls smiled for the camera while displaying the v sign.
A hand symbol usually performed while drunk, in public, in front of a camera by an ugly wannabe scenester chick. It is performed by holding up the middle and index fingers accompanied by some hideous snarled lip or grotesque tongue wagging.
While originating with British folks, and a sign used by gang bangers, and most commonly done by Asian people whenever they get their pictures taken these stupid scenester wannabe hookers seem to think it looks cool or hip.
While in all reality they look dumber than ever and every guy and cool chick is laughing their asses off at them both in person and every time they blind themselves by looking at their pathetic myspace pages.
Hey check out that fat ugly aging emo/punk/rock-a-billy/wannabe scenester whore doing the whole stupid V sign in front of her own camera so she can post pictures on myspace of how cool and stupid she is.
A very Passe symbol asian women ((and men sometimes)) use everytime they get their picture taken.
I bet you $50 you can look thru an asian persons photo album and not find them V Sign on Webshots.com!
A hand symbol done by holding up the middle and index fingers. Usually done by asian people whenever they get their pictures taken. Tho many white people have started to pick up on this little gesture and are using it alot nowadays.
He just V Signed in front of the Camera
1. A sign the hippies used back in the 60's and early 70's which stood for peace. Nowadays you might still see that same acid wired phoggy standing on the side of the road next to his broken down RV, holding up a cardboard sign in one hand and happily flashing the V sign with the other at cars passing by.
2. A gesture Asian people instinctively throw up everytime they see a camera. Tho its not just limited to Asia anymore. Alot of teeny bopper girls here tend to pull the V Sign several times in one albums worth of pictures as well.
3. A sign gang bangers sometimes use, Especially in rap videos or on magazine covers. Only except the palm is turned the opposite direction. Mainly used by alot of wannabe thug wanker kids who probably dont even know what it stands for.
Dont use the V sign in britain.
Holding up the index finger and the middle finger up. It sybolizes peace. It's very strange though. I live in Indiana. A place full of Bush-loving, war-supporting people. Yet, it seems that they love to hold up teh V sign. Someone needs to tell those hicks the meaning of the V sign.
Billy: "Why is that war-loving hick holding up the symbol of peace, the V sign?"
Me: "Because he's a bushtard.
