The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement

has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for

European communications, rather than German, which was the other

possibility.


As part of the negotiations,

Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some

room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for

what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).


In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft "c". Sertainly, sivil

servants will resieve this news with joy. Also, the hard "c" will be

replaced with "k." Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters

kan have one less letter.


There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the

troublesome "ph" will be replaced by "f".

This will make words like "fotograf" 20 per sent shorter.


In the third 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 horible mes of silent "e"s in the languag is

disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th"

by "z" and "W" by "V".


During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords

kontaining "ou", and similar changes vud of kors; be aplid to ozer

kombinations of leters.


After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil b no mor trubls

or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer. Ze drem vil

finali kum tru

I think that sounds like a very good idea, except for the “th” to “z” part. Can’t understand why it was posted in the joke forum.
