V for Valiant Verbosity

Son-in-law Tom and I shared a whim-driven moment the other night, and offed to the local filmoplex to visit the last showing of V for Vendetta. Early in the movie, the lead character, a grimacing Guy-Fawkes-masked-man named, as advertised, "V," greets the heroine with a speech (see transcript on IMDB), that began thusly: "This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified." It goes on, this speech does, and on, V after V after V.

Someone was having fun.
