#@%&#! Will No Longer Be Used To Represent Swear Words

Funny story written by Ducksley

Thursday, 7 March 2013

Cartoonists and others who for decades have used "#@%&#!" to represent curse words are outraged by a plan to cease using the symbols. Beginning July 1st, #@%&#! will be replaced by "<>?{}!," said Lunabird Fistermacher of the US Department of Lexicology.

It's a move that many oppose. "What the #@%&#! are they thinking?" complained cartoonist Ludwig Botato. "I can type #@%&#! in a couple of seconds, but I have to search all over the keyboard to find the <>?{}! keys."

But Fistermacher says it's time for a change. "#@%&#! has been used far too long,"she claimed, adding, "We considered other options, such as ':-+),' which looked too much like a long face sucking a lemon, and 'FFFFF,' which was opposed by the Fraternity of Future Farmers, Fire Fighters and Frackers."

Frustrated by the opposition to the change, Fistermacher said, "We worked very hard to try to make everyone happy. Those who are complaining can just can kiss my <>?{}!."
