I agree. Basselopes SHOULD run the World. Lord knows the Jackasses have run it long enough…….,
I have noticed there are never any cows in Bloom Cownty.
And for that matter, why is “Phone” NOT spelled “Fone”???
Anyone who can only think of one way to spell a word obviously lacks imagination.
Teacher to student: Spell bird
Teacher to student: That’s not how you spell bird.
Student: Well if that don’t spell bird, what do it spell?
Scott Free has been elected Grand Leader of the spelling bee.
absolutely love Bloom County
Or at least fix the spelling of the English Language.
Kwik, phix the fonetics!
English is SO screwed up because it’s a “Mutt” language, made up of multiple different languages. For instance, why does the “wind” blow, but you “wind” up a clock? And what happened when the “dove” “dove” downward? (think rapidly descending bird…) And why would you “set” the table with a “set” of dishes that you “set” on it?
I think he meant to say ass-alopes.
This is why there’s also no “Q” in barbecue. It’s NOT SPELLED “BARBEQUE”! If it were, it would be pronounced “barbeck” as in “antique”.
This particular comic has to be, in essence, an excuse to draw Rosebud in a wide variety of poses.
I WISH Basselopes ran the world
There have been attempts before at reformed, simplified spelling of American English (e.g., in the Chicago Tribune of the McCormick era). Doesn’t work. Basselopes are too grungy to run the world, anyway….
And why aren’t the syllables of ‘snowplow’ pronounced the same (or the opposite)?
Anytime those basselopes want to start running the world, I’m all for it…can’t be any worse than the @sswipes that are running it now.
uai ahr ui spelihng iht uiþ ay si aur ay kyu? iht aut tu bi speld ‘kyukuhmbr’. þat mayks ivn mour sens.
I could imagine using the letters “q-u-q-o-m-b-e-r” in instead of “c-u-c-u-m-b-e-r” while referencing a certain object (note: the spelling mentioned first might not appear as good as the spelling mentioned second, but it could still be considered a good alternative).
I don’t remember ever seeing this one show the current strip before.
