BAGHDAD, Iraq - With just hours to go before the official signing of the new Iraqi constitution, and a few missiles flying overhead to keep everyone "on their toes", some American school teachers have requested the experimental use of a phonics-based approach to the wording.

The result? Absolute illegible cr*p... but hey, it's better than whole language, right?

An excerpt from the actual text:


The Konstitushun of Irak

We the peepel of the Irak, in order to form a mor purrfect union, establish justis, inshur domestik tranquilitee, proviid for the komon deefens, promot the general welfaar, and sekure the blessings of libertee to ourselves and our posteritee, do ordaan and establish this Konstitution for Irak.

An arabic version is also being developed. No word on whether or not actual Arabic script will be used.

Make Ken Adrian's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
