What about the conspiracy theory which says the VIIV name, is in fact the symbolic representation of a hand (the little, ring, middle and index fingers)... This would mean the VIIV logo is, in fact, the opposite symbol, which President Bush, among many other people, regularly makes... If you belongs to the 'milieu', you know that reversing things, is common, to confuse people... So VIIV might as well be IVVI, which, as I said, is the hand posture Bush & co often make in public... (maybe VIIV is the true symbol, and IVVI, just a "public" version of it...)
