    Thumbs down The L and the r To Be Removed From Alphabet

    Just this morning I read on Guns.com where a school district in Maryland has decided to remove the 12th letter of the Alphabet, the letter L
    because the letter is scary looking. They are looking at the letter r in lower case because someone said it looks like a revolver. They are doing this to protect their children from scary looking letters.[/I]

    I wonder if this school administrator isn't playing with a full deck? With the L and the r removed Maryland would be spelled Mayland.

    ASL (American Sign Language) the sign for G looks like someone pointing the index finger like us old fogies here did as kids playing cops and robbers. With thumb back and 3 fingers curled into a fist.

    Our unfettered leaders need to be thrown into a rubber room.

    Hmmm... That "l" kind of looks like a scary knife, and the "d" kind of looks like a rifle (minus the stock) w/ trigger guard. Perhaps those should be stricken from the alphabet as well and they can refer to the state as Mayan. Coincidence? Maybe what the Mayans really meant to say, instead of saying that the world would end in December, was that the world as we know it would end due to events in December and the following knee jerk reactions.

    The whole article was a rather humorous read, but an educator being that retarded isn't really that far fetched of an idea. Without the commentary from "L" and the April Fools stamp there, it's almost believable.

    That's going to ruin the best scene "Get Smart" ever, The CRAW! If you haven't seen it its worth a watch, but it won't make much sense without L and R

    Reminds me of the old Saturday Night Live skit about using only 10 letters of the English Alphabet and renaming it "The Decabet."

    It was in response to the idea of the Feds replacing English standard weights and measures with the Metric system. Which failed by the way.

    And the letter X is racist, since it figures so heavily in the Stars and Bars.

    Here's a good (April Fools) article on this. Gotta love the "concealed pop tart" image.
