image for Two fings you should Know about the wise woman

James What was researching the origins of the famous V sign and while in the historical section of the British Museum he asked the guide for some help and was told to speak to the wise woman the old lady who sits in Trafalgar square and feeds the birds.

After looking round Trafalgar square he spotted an old woman and said "are you the wise woman" She said "there are two fings you should know about the wise woman first she is a woman and second she is wise" "Never mind that" said What "can you tell me what is the origin of the V sign"

The old woman looked at him and said "Long ago when England had the greatest archers in Europe they ran in to trouble when they attacked Scotland because captured English archers had the two fingers they used to release the arrow chopped off by the Scots,so in future battles the English archers held up their two fingers in a V sign to show they still had them."

Grumpy What without a word of thanks strode off but looked back to see the old lady giving him a V sign.
