Is Chik-Fill-Ay Killeng Mahdern Grammer?
Since the inception of text messaging, people have been looking for easier ways to communicate. Whether they can’t spell or just believe acronyms are the new black in language, text lingo became all the rage.
But thanks to the hoofy-work of some milk cows (beef cows don’t have utters, just saying), we have a completely new debacle – vernacular has not only become initialized, but also minimized.
“Eat More Chikin” has done more than become an anthem for healthy eating (and a lovely “Ka-ching” for the franchise), but has created a trend we can see everywhere including on TV.
Sure, cows can’t spell. I get that. Cute. However, TV execs are becoming more and more bovine everyday with moronic advertising.
Any science fiction fans caught the latest moniker for the signature network of Trekkies? This week, it changed its name from Sci Fi to SyFy.
What a stretch of marketing dollars that was. As if that wasn’t enough fodder for the phonetically challenged, we have their half-baked tagline, “Imagine Greater.”
What’s that? A middle finger of one-upsmanship to Steve Jobs and his “Think Different” moniker?
I suppose this imbecilic concoction makes sense if you review most TV networks these days.
- The Learning Channel became TLC, showing learning is really about tender loving care
- American Movie Classics is AMC, and now adulating praise to a failed cult-classic automobile
- Even CNN got in the mix with Headline News vacillating into HLN
What’s next? The History Channel becoming “THC”? Well, that would work if it weren’t for the hippie lettuce heads out there.
So, the next time I hear someone exclaim “OMG” in a sentence or I read “What’s Nu” in a text message, I will think back to America’s favorite chikin joint and blame those billboard-painting, high-flying cows.
