Victory, thy name is me!

Tell me, why do people keep making stupid victory signs in their photos? Was looking through profiles on Orkut and LoveHappens and noticed a lot of them did the 2 fingered salute.

Maybe it means “Peace” or “Victory” or “Virgin!”. Va-va-va-voom? Vomitrocious? My other car is a Volkswagon? Vote for AIADMK? Who knows. The worst is when this hand signal seems half-hearted, like the person isn’t very sure what he or she is doing.

And yet on group photos all these tiny 4 ft 5″ wimps, who’ve finally taken their noses outta the books, stick up two fingers. Faces scared, eyes screwed up, hand not coming up fully (with the arm bent in a remarkable likeness to Muralitharan), but with two fingers stuck out! Maybe it’s just their way of standing apart in a group photo. For guys to say “Hey, who’s this guy who doesn’t belong here”?

Group photos are ok i guess. But on your marriage album? With a bride on your arm, where is the need to put up a hand with two fingers in a V? Lochinvar could have, but why you? V for Vomiting maybe? Or maybe you are telling the world that you are No. 2 for the girl!

It’s one thing I cannot bear. Dont try to be a part of the crowd with such stupid actions. Be your self. Or if you win the world cup in Germany and the Reuters guy asks you to show the V symbol, don’t look embarrassed or half-hearted. You’ll just look bad.
