Here's a curious item we shared with our friends at SPOGG
. It's an illustration from a BBC article
about a woman who hid her illiteracy for 40 years. Notice the glaring omission of both pound signs (the crosshatch and the monetary unit). In American maledicta
, the # and $ play significant roles. There are several periods in this illustration, but certainly the semicolon
is more colorful?! Note also that Z, X, W, and J are here inexplicably considered indecipherable.
