Dont Tell The French
  • I got this in an email and actually found it quite ammusing :tongue:

    European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will
    be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which
    was the other possibility.

    As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English
    spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in
    plan that would become known as "Euro-English".

    In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will
    make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in
    favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one
    less letter. There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year
    when the
    troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like
    fotograf 20% shorter.

    In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to
    reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments
    will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a
    deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the
    silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

    By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with
    "z" and "w"with "v". During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd
    from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi
    bl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find
    it ezi tu
    understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

    Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze
    forst plas.

    hey hey!! :tongue:
  • LOL. Very funny Marshy! :laugh:

    Being of German descent I can certainly read all that stuff no problem. Is this a joke to make the Arayan Language? :) Really fairly hilarious.

    I sent that joke to my friends and only one person understood it. But I got a kick out of it.

    very funy! :laugh:
  • The funny part is, that's how it works. I live in SoCal, and our vernacular inches closer to Spanglish every year. Kinda like Bladerunner's view of LA's future, I'm afraid.
  • That's not funny, that's just sad. Can't help but wonder what the language is going to be like 50 years from now, there's lots to choose from all over this country!
    (and don't call me "Ma'mita" or I'll :bash: you!) :laugh:
