Strangled English

Posted by That Other Mike on 01/10/2011

Sometimes the snark writes itself and I literally have to do nothing:

George Strango, arguing for English-only automated phone systems.

Leaving aside the obvious hilarity of George’s post, he’s also wrong – there is no official national language of the United States. And as for those Hispanic people, a great many of them have lived in the US since before where they lived became part of the US, so I don’t see that having a Spanish option is too heinous in and of itself.

Also, how much does George look he’s auditioning for Brokeback Mountain 2: Electric Boogaloo?
