April 25, 2009: Spelling Nazis Win

After years of pissing and moaning, the spelling Nazis have won.
As reported by the far flung China Daily, 3news New Zealand, England's Mail Online, NPR, and numerous web sites, the town of Webster Massachusetts will finally correct the spelling on two signs for the local lake.



For years many people, myself included, thought it meant, "I fish on my side, you fish on your side, and nobody fishes in the middle".
But now that the correct spelling has been brought forward, it clearly means, "The fishing place at the boundaries, the neutral meeting ground".

I'm glad that's been cleared up.

Actually, a better phonetic spelling would be

Shagogagog Man-Chogagog Shubungagungamog based on the pronunciation from the NPR story.

Now if the R is silent, why bother including it?

How did the sign come to be misspelt in the first place? I suspect someone's penmanship wasn't up to scratch.

"It's an aitch."
"No, looks like an en to me."
"But ens don't have long ascenders."
"Hmm, maybe you're right. Perhaps it IS an aitch. Hey, nobody's gonna notice anyway."
peels backing off H<schlup!> and attaches it to sign <splut!>
