I don’t want to be a Twit. Please give me some vowels.
Whn Twttr bcm so pplr svrl yrs ago, I prdctd tht it wld ruin the Nglsh lng as we no it. Mi prdctn haz cum tru.
I haven’t read a football magazine since sometime in the mid-1980s. However, since Texas A&M University, my alma mater, has said goodbye to the Big 12 and hello to the Southeast Conference, I bought Phil Steele’s 2012 College Football Preview. It has 344 pages and is stuffed with information. Unfortunately, most of it is unreadable for me.
Here is some of what was written about A&M:
“In HC Mike Sherman’s first season …. McGee was a #4DC …. Ryan Tannehill was the team’s #1 rec …. despite dealing with a leaky O-line …. set several schl records …. the preseason Big 12 OPOY …. Due to TO’s …. I pointed out LY ….”
It is so bad that Mr. Steele includes on the third page a helpful guide to abbreviations:
The funny thing is, if he didn’t spend half the magazine touting how great his magazine is, he’d have room for real English instead of Twitter English. This is just a sign of what’s to come, and I’m not looking forward to it. I really don’t want to be a Twit. Please give me some vowels.
