George Bernard Shaw and Texting


George Bernard Shaw in 1934I’m guessing that Nobel laureate George Bernard Shaw would have loved texting!  The following quote is taken from Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss (p. 186).

I can scribble the word “bomb” barely legibly 18 times in one minute and “bom” 24 times, saving 25 per cent per minute by dropping the superfluous b.  In the British Commonwealth, on which the sun never sets, and in the United States of North America, there are always millions of people continually writing, writing, writing … Those who are writing are losing time at the rate of 131,400 X x per annum …

So, I couldn’t resist.  I found this quote from Shaw:

“A happy family is but an earlier heaven.”

And changed it to a text:

*s* family is ADIH

Do you have any creative texts to share?

NOTE: Here’s a comprehensive list of chat and text abbreviations, which might be especially helpful for parents.
