Txt spk fools lawyers

Posted by Admin on January 27, 2009

I came across this news article about a court case involving a girl who was being sent abusive text messages. The story itself isn’t funny and our sympathies are with the unnamed girl. However, the fact that the lawyers couldn’t understand the messages is funny:

John Hodge, prosecuting, said: “The text messages are difficult to understand but they are of an offensive nature.”

He went on to say:

“It is a shame to think this is the language of Shakespeare.”

Nuff said (or for John Hodge: ‘enough has been said and I don’t feel the need to add anything to the debate’).
