K

When you can't write out okay, just write O.K.
If that is just too much, write K.

If you really, really mean OK in a big way, write KK
Just never write KKK , cause that's bad.

Since I am totally uncool, I write OK in messages.
K seems silly to me.
And maybe a wee bit lazy.

I really don't understand shortening a word that has already been shortened to two letters.

OK, maybe if you were doing Morse code and had to do all those dots and dashes.
But, if you are using a keyboard...
Uh-uh.

  1. I know, how hard can it be to type the extra letter with O to make it OK?

  3. OK is so much better than Kool. Or worse yet, Kewl.

  6. True story:
    My daughter was working for a minor league baseball team last year. Sometimes she was responsible for hanging "K's" on the outfield wall whenever the home pitcher got a strikeout. If a third strikeout happened, she was NOT allowed to hang a third "K" because that would spell out "KKK." If that happened, she was told to hang a backward "K." If you know how baseball is scored, you know that a "backward" K means the batter struck out without swinging. She complained to me that people may think she's an idiot who doesn't know the difference between swinging at a pitch and looking at a called third strike. Ahhhh, ridiculous political correctness.
    Good thing our minor league was kinda crappy. They were lucky to GET to three strike outs.

    1. Al, that is just weird. Last year Krispy Kreme made a club on Facebook called the Krispy Kreme Klub. They had had to scrap their plans over the whole KKK.

    2. People are losing their minds over political correctness (by the way, my 'N' post is about PC and is called "Nonsense").

    3. My house is so politically incorrect that if the US ever went total 1984, we'd be imprisoned.
