I hope one of the football players tweet "In you're entire life, yule make half of wut I make in a yeer"

That would be both demoralizing and amusing.

Looks like Wes Welker made another drop and accidentally turned "May" to "My."

funny idea and great execution.  I feel good/bad for the kid who has to look at Darnell Docket's feed.

I thought the whole point of twitter was to post things in a nearly incomprehensible manner.

This is a great way to get kids interested in grammar. It's also hilarious.

Wait, there are 2nd graders on Fark?  I'd better tone it down a bit.

Maybe he was just being very specific about which god was blessing people?

Don't worry, they are all on the politics tab. You can identify them by being the most mature people there.

When twitter first started I mistakenly assumed everyone using it was Welsh.

When you tell people to say something using an arbitrarily small number of characters, that's pretty much what you're going to get.  All consonants with some numbers thrown in.

I suspect it's 50% character constraints and 49..96% "the fingers you are texting with are too fat". The other 0.04% are actually Welsh.

This just in, a lot of hockey players use english as a second language and all hockey players get hit in the head while depriving their brains oxygen during extreme play.

Yes, i'm sure a second grader would be demoralized by that

No one noticed that this is how the teacher sneaks 'god' into the curriculum?

Part of that 49.96% includes mental deficiencies as well.

Too bad none of those kids will ever play pro football.

That's alright.  They're getting ready for careers as professional Scrabble players.

The Twitter posts of professional American Football players, reproduced, with the language corrected by sub-par grammar NAZIs.

/There is an elegance in a well formed sentence.
//ignoring the rules by stylistic choice can also be elegant (in its own way)
///Being unaware of your own shortfalls in communication, however, is a sad thing.

And once again I discover why it can be important to RTFA as part of your commenting strategy.
