The European Language Commission has just announced an agreement
English as the official European-wide language, Rather than German,
the other choice. The commission conceded that English spelling has
considerable room for Improvement, and has proposed a five year phase-
to create what will become known as 'Eur-English.' This term will
be Shortened to "Yrglish."
In the first year, the letter 'S' will replace the soft 'C'. This
sertainly make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard 'C' will
in favor of the 'K'. This should klear up konsiderable konfusion...
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' twenty persent shorter.
