Favorite letter?

Self explanatory. You've got like, at least 23 to choose from, so what's your favorite?

I'm even more full of hate when people correct me!

And I think I found a new forum name... delopuxy has a nice ring to it. So I'm less full of hate. For now!

I have to go with 'r'. Without 'r', all your friends would be fiends, and it would be nigh-on impossible to know when you're in the presence of a pirate.

And Engrish would be gone as well. I do not want to live in a world without Engrish and platypi.

I don't have a favourite, but have always been annoyed by 'q'. It shows up too early in the alphabet -- it should be banished to the end with all those Xs and Zs.

Oh, yeah, my favorite letter is one from free clinic that tells me the tests came back negative, I have it framed and hanging over my bed. The next is the one from the police department telling me I am no longer a person of interest in a homicide and that I can pick up my woodchipper from the evidence room.

Personally, I count l, m, n, and o as a single letter, pronounced "elemeno."

W

It's the only letter they just could'nt come up with a new one for, so they just took one of the others and doubled it.

Maybe it's a font thing, but looking at a W, you'd think it would be double-V instead of double-U.
Of course singing 'double v, x, y and z' just don't sound right.

I think we should call W "Flippy M", oh and I am talking about the letter, not the president.

I'm still pissed about that bag of M&M's I bought a month or two ago. Like half of them had little white W's instead of M's! What a ripoff.

Next time, eat all the M's, turn your plate around 180 degrees and repeat.
