Ordinarily I write my own blog completely, using quotes and excerpts from things that I have read or heard. This one is different.
I recently read the following joke (shown in bold letters below), and it struck a chord with me about what is happening in our world, especially in America. I include it and claim credit for only the words shown in non-bold, regular type.
The European Commission has just announced an
agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union 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 phase-in
plan that would become known as “Euro-English.”
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 favour of “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 replased with “f.” This will make words like fotograf 20 persent shorter.
In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reash the stage where more komplikated shanges are possible.
Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters whish 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 sertainly go away.
By the fourth yer people wil be reseptiv to steps sush 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 ze 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 efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.
If zis has mad you smil, ples pas on zis vebsit tu oza Amerikans an evn tu pepl in oza plezes.
If, on the other hand, this made you a little angry as you realized how gradual changes over a period of time can turn one thing into something completely different, please take time to ponder what is happening in
Sadly, our great American culture is being replaced with something we don’t even recognize. As we accept the whims of multiculturalism along with the heritage and religious beliefs of so many others, we are rejecting our own Judeo-Christian heritage, which is the basis for our laws and way of life.
If we continue to reject the morals and standards of behavior that the Bible gives us, we will open the door to a world where almost anything goes. We are moving from a solid foundation to shaky ground, and we cannot expect our way of life to exist for our children.
That’s what I think. Leave a comment below and tell me what you think!
