V vor Fucktory

Former President Bush caused quite a scandal when waving the V-sign to Australian protestors.

Without really realising his gaffe, and most probably meaning to wave V for Victory, he presidentially smilling gave them the local equivallent for "F*ck you". Apparently in signs it does matter whether the hand is turned inward or outward. So a good tip to those of you ordering some drinks at a British bar, and waving with two fingers: just make sure which side your fingers are pointing at, the two beers might very well be coming to you differently than expected otherwise...
