More Pfriday Pfun

Posted: February 27, 2009 in Uncategorized

As we reach the end of yet another week, let us all scream “It’s Friday, hallelujah!” On a not-so-serious note, I thought I would share with each of you something fun to do on your Friday. Or your Monday. Or really any other day of the week that involves professional correspondence with a coworker or superior.

I’m a huge fan (if you can’t tell) of freakin’ people out. I enjoy making their eyes roll at my stupidity. I personally think everyone should be this way, but perhaps they don’t know how. Here’s a sure fire way to ellicit weird looks…

Next time you have to write a work email, or anything else serious, purposely misspell words. The trick is, though, you have to leverage homophones. For the unknowing, homophones are words that sound the same, but are spelled differently. Additionally, you can add a little Latin flare to the letter to spice it up. Here’s an example:

Deer Mr. Johnson,

Eye am writing ewe this letter twoday two inform ewe that wee are knot going two bee renewing your lease at the end of the month. Are only weesh is that ewe our satisfied by the serveece we have provided over the last ate months.

The caws for this deceesion is based on the fore violations that came two lite over the last too weaks:

  • The unauthorized feesh bowl
  • The caged monkee
  • Yore malodorous feat
  • The offal dependents on potato cheaps

Wee ask that ewe vacate the premises within fourteen daze from the date of this letter. Thank ewe for your understanding and wee weesh you well in your apartment search.

Sincerely,

The Owners

Try it out. It will be fun. And it will make someone else strain their eyes.

Weed is from the earth. God put this here for me and you. Take advantage man, take advantage.
