The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, 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 five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).
In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft "c". Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy.
Also, the hard "c" will be replaced with "k". Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter.
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced by "f". This will make words like "fotograf" 20 per sent shorter.
In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.
Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent "e"s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.
By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" by "z" and "w" by " v".
During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou", and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.
Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst place....
Who care about assists? You still lose
its very funny to someone that dont know the languages involved, german in particular
it detracts from the funny part that it was supposed to be the british that renamed their english, since you know.. theyre english and live in England.
i think its one of those jokes that are only funny if you dont think about it
heh. well nto that funny in my opinion. Im austrian and the typical german - english accent is mostly a lie.
We do have a strong accent but it doesnt sounds like this.
The funny thign actually is that German is the most spoken language in Europe and English definitly not. Even french has more speakers.
(About 5 years after my country had been invaded and occupied by the nazis)
If the americans hadnt stepped in (About 5 years after my country had been invaded and occupied by the nazis) then we would all be speaking german today! (like we were for 5 years during WW2 because the nazis had invaded and occupied our country).
Besides, what good has the british ever given us? Is monty python as funny as Dane Cook? Can The Who hold a candle to the Jonas Brothers?
Will Pink Floyd ever be as good as Pink?
And dont get me started on Queen... I mean Queen just dont match up to the songs in A Knights Tale where fat people are slapping their fat legs and stomping the ground, almost in rhythm.
So why dont you just go sit down britty!
No im not interested in hearing about Zeppelin, Sex Pistols or Beatles. But please tell me more about world of warcraft, britney spears and mcdonalds.
EDIT: Mitchell and Webb are the only good american comedians ever, and theyre dead!
