Silent But Deadly

In Politics on April 16, 2010 at 11:57 am

Protests continued today in Knoxville over Proposal 734. The proposal pits two contrasting organizations against each other: Sound It Out (SIO) and Muhm’s Thegh Whuord (MTW). Debates and rallies have erupted all over the city. SIO, an organization committed to the extermination of silent letters, pushed to get Proposal 734 on the ballot. The organization proposed changing “Knoxville” to “Naaxvil.” SIO leader, Jon Dinword, explained, “Silent letters do nothing but create spelling mistakes, jumbling up words and confusing our children.”

However, to pass Proposal 734, SIO supporters will have to overcome the opposition of MTW, an organization striving to add more silent letters to almost every word. MTW protesters carried signs saying “Anohther LLehteur Thegh Behttterr” and “Sighleince Iszz Goahldewenn: Thegh WE Iszz Sighleint.”

Proposal 734 will be decided within the next 24 hours.

Hearings continued today in the most grammatically intense case of the century. The defense called their star witness: Miss Redon Kulus to the stand. Miss Kulus declared, “Gone are the days of mundane modifiers. We must rebuild our language with fantabulous new phrases.”

E. Normous and G. Gantic are suing the defendant, Gin Ormous, on the grounds of fraudulent descriptive activity.
