Euro-English Joke
« on: November 21, 2008, 01:03:03 AM »

This is from a very good friend -with European roots - from USA. Enjoy:)


The 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  sensibl 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. 

Danke shon & tanke mucho!

That's kind of how it used to be. That's funny though.
