'Z' is expected to become the most popular of all the letterz

The Oxford English Dictionary, the world's leading authority on something, is to take radical action by removing the letter 's' from all plural forms, and replacing it with 'z', because that's already what many people do now anyway.

The move comez after several noted music artistz had also replaced the 's' at the end of their namez with a 'z', causing much confusion amongst the younger generation, who now don't know the difference between the letterz 's' and 'z', or, indeed, between right and wrong.

One group of 'musicianz' who end their name thusly, are The Gorillaz, the 'virtual band' created by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. Another is Boyz II Men, who I know nothing whatsoever about.

The OED is also considering whether or not to replace the word 'have' with 'of', due to the extremely popular - especially online - usage of the latter in sentencez such as:

"I should of known better".

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