Headline: Teacher Arrested

At New York's JFK airport today, an individual later discovered to be a Public School teacher was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, slide rule, log tables, & a calculator. At a press conference, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement.

He is being charged with transporting weapons of math instruction. "Al-Gebra is a fearsome cult," Gonzalez said. "They desire average solutions by means and extremes, & sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values. They use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer to themselves as "unknowns", but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval, with co-ordinates in every country. They test the limits. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say: "There are three sides to every triangle."

When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said, "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes."

Be on the look-out, there may be more of them!

German engineering in ze haus!

Not quite sure who has done these ads, but the "Pimp my ride" style is hilarious! "German engineering in ze haus!" and "Vee just dropped it like it's hot!" in super-thick German accents presented by Swedish actor Petter Stormare is just brilliant . Enjoy: VW MkV GTI spots. Ah, the website is pretty cool too! Pimp up your ride and wathc your ride. http://vwfeatures.com/

Official Language at EU

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 5- 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 replaced with "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 people 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 efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.
