XKCD Web Comic #1069: Alphabet (described)

A web comic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language.


 Scene: Drawing of a stick figure talking to another stick figure with blonde hair who is seated at a bar and holding a drink.

Person 1: Baby, if I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d forget about you in a heartbeat. – I’m not going to waste my one chance to help fix the mess that is English Orthography.

Hover text: Do I get to remove letters entirely? Or just rearrange them? Because the “k/c” situation is ridiculous. Look, we can make out whenever. This is *immortality*!


Warning: This comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).
