A Ludicrous Decree from a Power-Mad Despot


In these troubling economic times, we sometimes have to make difficult decisions.  It is with great sorrow that I have decided, out of necessity, to restructure the roman alphabet.

The main challenge: Q’s demonstrable inferiority to the letter U.

As I’m sure many of you have noticed while filing in your menial administrative jobs, Q is not worthy of its current position next to R-S-T.  Q should therefore be swapped with U, giving the former greater proximity to the equally useless letters, X-Y-Z.

In our benevolent autocratic state, the positions of Q and U will henceforth be traded in the alphabet:

Long live U-R-S-T-Q-V!

    You should check out the keyboard layout “dvorak”. It is laid out with this very concept of letter frequency and efficiency (example: grouping all of the vowels into one row). There’s a bit of a learning curve, obviously, since we are all used to qwerty at this point, but my brother took the time to learn dvorak and swears by it! Another downside: when you are in public places you have to either switch the keyboard layout to dvorak (if you have the permissions) or try to switch back to a qwerty mindsight. Difficult!
