Please read our new policy for posts. We are also considering the Twitter approach to comments. Feedback appreciated.
To keep our costs down and in the tradition of ancient Hebrew we will be dropping all vowels in future posts as to save costs on bit usage on the web site and to lower costs for people on expensive internet connections. Our inspiration for this comes from Twitter implementing a monthly charge for the use of vowels.
If they can do it why not us?
We know all our faithful readers will understand and we hope applaud this new policy.
I HATE April Fool’s Day! I’m too gullible.

You know, you could have posters buy vowels ala Wheel of Fortune and have a bit of income coming in to support this lovely blog. Maybe a nickel a vowel or a set fee. Y would still be free.
Gotcha! Saw the whole Twitter prank yesterday. Though maybe a post one day set up like Wheel of Fortune just for fun. Dee, Deb, and GBTC, et al could come up with something. Or maybe Mad Libs. Sometimes I think we all need a break from the too serious. And some more chocolate. We could all use some more chocolate. What do you say?
The Cadbury Creme eggs are an Easter favorite. I got my chocolate fix yesterday.
You know something is seriously amiss at TWW when Guy Behind the Curtain is no longer the guy behind the curtain and he starts writing posts! It must be a coming out party! What else can we expect in the not too distant future?
I prefer vowels and chocolate!! I’m in the Arce camp re Twitter.

I can only read thus far: I do not twitter…I’m working on it.

All that comes to mind is this, “Let’s all sing like the birdies sing. Tweet, tweet-tweet, tweet-tweet.” Or maybe, “They’re coming to take me away…”

Now, now-were you there when he was born? Dee did the breaking news; GBTC did the post.

🙂 You had me till the 2nd paragraph….well played, indeed.
Good. But did everybody else get their chocolate? I prefer chocolate cake and ice cream myself. And chocolate milkshakes. And chocolate chocolate chip cookies.
No, I wasn’t there – after checking his d-o-b, I found out he is even older than I am! Note: his age was listed on Wikipedia. Not verified by birth records or “carbon dating”.
Still healing from a bad church experience where there was Doctrine with no love or joy.
I’ve been reading here at TWW for over a year – appreciate your posts and E-Church.
Thanks for the smiles today, Dee and GBTC!
@ Older than Dirt:
Last night I remarked to my daughter that the oldest living things on planet earth all seem to live in California– General Sherman the sequoia, Methuselah the bristlecone, King Clone the creosote– “Bob Barker…” she added.
I wasn’t previously aware of this, but it’s great to hear that They let Cadbury’s export Creme Eggs over there as well. Cadbury’s have two distinctions in my book:
1) The most bestest chocolate
2) The most bestest shade of purple
Finally, how about this for a Creme Egg…
Only gospel vowels are part of the Gospel.
Awesome reply! 🙂
I fell for it, ladies.
@ Argo:Gonna atch the movie named after you this weekend.
Did you also have a line up about *Discern* and *Discernment*? I *think* I read something like that April 1, but took it seriously – there is quite a bit of *discernment* @ TWW.
I almost took this for real, until I thought, “wasn’t April Fools just the other day? I am so hoping this is an April Fool’s prank and not for real! I’m going to have to find a way to get my posts across using sign language or smoke signals … I don’t think miming will work on the internet either…” 🙂

Any vowels used have to be winsome, too.
(If you are a woman typing here, the vowels must be appropriately feminine. Males are to use male vowels, or use vowels in a manly way.)
So the gospel vowels are o and e? Or maybe only vowels in a particular one verse statement of the “gospel”? Any suggestions?
Feminine vowels must be pastel-colored and give male vowels directions in a submissive manner, and masculine vowels must exercise headship and be able to fend off attackers. That is obviously the divine plan from the beginning of creation.
I’m sure we can find proof texts…
Just post everything in Welsh. Pretty much the same thing. Mllwydx y llwndll. Now any Welshmen out there, don’t be going crazy on me. I love Martyn Lloyd-Jones!!
Jeff – you do realise that “w” and “y” are considered vowels in Welsh?
I sense a major schism in the offing here.
I am two days too late, but I was like WTF! Okay. This economy is effectin’ errrrbody! Let me pass ’round the offerin’ plate. This would be a great time to learn Russian.
NICE April fools Joke, ladies! Nice.
Not much I only post on non technical issues, not on theology.
