Ghoti still isn't fish

Did you know that people protest spelling bees? There are a lot of things in this world that people should protest, but I'm not sure that spelling is one of them. Apparently, The Simplified Spelling Society believes that the English language should be reformed so that it is easier to spell. I've been misspelling the English language just fine and I have no interest in learning how to misspell it in a new and "reformed" kind of way. If I wanted to learn a new language, I would pick a so called foreign language not a new version of my native tongue. Besides, I really have a hard time taking people seriously when they protest spelling bees (especially when they carry signs that say things like "I'm thru with through," "Spelling shuud be lojical," and "Spell different difrent").

Ha! I love a good protest. The sillier the better. But these spelling reformists need better slogans, like:

DROP ACID
NOT PARTICIPLES

MAKE LOVE
NOT VOWELS
