The famous V speech defined! I loved this speech so I took it upon myself to define each word. Take a gander and impress someone with a new V word the next time you have a conversation. From the movie V for Vendetta, great movie!
“Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian1 veteran2, cast vicariously3 as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes4 of fate. This visage5, no mere veneer6 of vanity, is a vestige7 of the vox populi8, now vacant9 and vanished10. However, this valorous11 visitation12 of a bygone vexation13 stands vivified14, and has vowed to vanquish15 these venal16 and virulent17 vermin18 vanguarding19 vice20 and vouchsafing21 the violently vicious and voracious22 violation23 of volition24! The only verdict25 is vengeance; a vendetta26 held as a votive27, not in vain28, for the value and veracity29 of such shall one day vindicate30 the vigilant31 and the virtuous. Verily32, this vichyssoise33 of verbiage34 veers35 most verbose36, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.”
I used to be a humble actor from vaudeville, but a twist of fate has made me a victim and villain. This mask that I wear is not to hide my face but it is a trace of the public opinion that is now ceasing to exist. However, what may seem to be a good deed is merely a result of my frustration and my vow to kill those corrupt infectious worms that are driven by immoral behavior and my want to give them a taste of their condescending so called human rights that they gave me. The only thing I can do is avenge my family by killing the ones that killed them, I made a vow, and it is not for nothing because this will one day prove who is really righteous. Of course I have used an excessive of words and expressions, so let me simply add that it’s a pleasure to meet you and you can call me V.
