A Dream Come Nightmare!
We at Jaywalker have long dreamt of
disrupting the time-space continuum through a variety of low-key
tactics. Thanks to our time travel capabilities, and to a greater degree
pure chance, a petition to disrupt the English language was
successful, and Jaywalker has removed the 24th letter from the
English alphabet. This letter had been so terribly overused in
various media and product names in recent years, that we simply could
not sit idly by - so we took the initiative, went back in time, and
lobbied for its banishment from the language.
Unfortunately, we were not e(ks)perienced
with time travel; arriving at a time before we even e(ks)isted,
which resulted in a parado(ks). This had led to a series of undesirable
consequences, which necessitated even deeper time travel to correct.
Regrettably, this too was not
Therefore, we'd like to announce the following adjustments to
The Roman numeral for "ten" is now "W". Please
adjust your clocks.
The appropriately numbered street between Fifth and Seventh Avenues in the
Kingscourt area has been removed, as has
any trace of its prior e(ks)istence.
The 24th letter will be removed from all correspondence. In its place you'll find
our editor's initials ("ks"). Please note the changes to our mailing address.
