Rant in brief

A friend emailed me this link after I berated her for using “143” in text conversation with her boyfriend. Apparently it means, “I love you” with each digit corresponding to the number of letters in the actual English phrase. So I peeked at the above link and made it to the B’s before giving up on not only it but a chunk of humanity as well.

How can there be such paranoia about English taking a backseat to Spanish in this country when countless goons employ these acronyms and annoyingly clever semiotics?

The grumpy old bastard is in today, sorry folks.
