That's what always annoyed me about that anti-racism advert on London transport which jumbled up the letters and ended with, "It doesn't make sense." To which I could never help myself thinking, "Well actually, it makes perfect sense, it just isn't spelt well."

If it hadn't made sense, the ad wouldn't have worked, because people wouldn't have understood the damn thing.

My vision is bad as it is, Minx!
Now, I AM seeing stars!

The Wandering Author said...

I think... strange language... some sort of spell... must... buy book...

Sam Wright said...

Cool!

Marie said...

It is amazing. I could actually read all of it! Not as dumb as I thought I was then!

Debi said...

Wow!

FB's dyslexia throws up some funny interpretations - like when he said, 'Oooh those rolls look nice. They've got salmonella on top.' (Semolina.) Wonder if he could read this. Suspect not.

Now could be the time for a confession. I can speak backwards fluently and have done from childhood. I can do it phonetically and as written ... Oo-er ...

DBA Lehane said...

shyh skuji ooslopjg s hj skuvbg!

Who can crack the Lehane code though?

jason evans said...

The scary thing is that I am more than capable of producing that language when I'm typing!

Minx said...

Typo-dyspraxlexia Jason, to give it its correct title (see post further down). At least you haven't got Lingo Incapabilitalis (Language of the Pissed) which is what Lehane seems to be suffering from!!

Minx said...

Debi, maybe your little party trick should one that's best left for the privacy of your own home, along with your weird snacks!

Atylllah said...

So you did all that hard work editing for nothing, then?

Sian Lewis said...

way cool!

Verilion said...

How long does it take to write like that? It wluod aeepr ... man I can't do it. Why is misspelling so easy except when you're trying? Shit now I can't even type my password in!

Gabriele C. said...

Yes, I can read that stuff, but it does take some effort. I'm synaesthetic (I see letters and numbers in colour), and the position of a letter in a word plays a role in the general aura of the word, thus misplaced letters screw with the aura and give me a headache.

Jefferson Davis said...

I forgot to say that I could read it. However, I don't think my ability to read the message, has anything to do with smarts. :) I ponder that it has to do with me having to proof-read students essay's in college. I've seen worst spelling than that, and been able to decipher it. :)

Minx said...

Gabriele, go and visit Amin - synaesthesiacs unite!

Jefferson, not only are students notoriously bad speelers but they are now sneaking in 'text' language. Can't stand it myself - cul8er!

Confucious Trevaskis said...

Haven't they got anything better to do at Cambridge Uniservity?......and you told me you were busy editing!

Better dreckly than never Beach Bum! Welcome a-board surfdude!

Debi said...

PS Dyslexic FB read it easier than if it was correct! Said it made no difference to him ...

Sorry you're unimpressed by my talking backwards party trick. Maybe if you heard it you'd feel different and recognise how very special a gift it is!

Minx said...

Debi, you are a Goddess to me regardless of your odd habits!

FB might well have stumbled on something here. Perhaps this is a whole new theory and we could make a fortune writing books in this way!! Whaddya say?

Debi said...

Debi sez YES!

(PS word verification is kachugs - catch hugs?)

Minx said...

Caught!
