Der Montagswitz (diesmal in Englisch & ein kurzer {deutscher} Kalauer)

Jeden Montag hier ein Witz (oder Begebenheiten aus dem Sortimenter-Alltag) zum Wochenanfang. Ihre Beiträge sind erwünscht per Mail

The New California Governor has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the state, rather than German which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, The Terminator’s Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would become known as “Austro-English” (or, if nobody will be offended, “Austrionics”).

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 favor of the “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 the “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 peopl 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 jetzt noch ein kurzer Kalauer, den Sie vielleicht schon kennen – aberim Fernsehen wird ja auch alles wiederholt:

Mein Lieber Sie haben noch drei Monate zu leben

Darauf der Autor

Wovon denn Herr Doktor ?.
