The English Abbreviations around the world gathered at the village square for their annual meeting, LOL was the first to give his speech.

LOL stood up in the midst of them and bellowed four times, “Umuletters kwenu kwezuo Nu “, and on each occasion, he faced a different direction and seemed to push the air with a clenched fist.

And ten thousand other abbreviations answered “Yaal” each time.

Then there was perfect silence.

He cleared his throat and began his speech.

“My fellow kinsletters, A toad does not run in the daytime for nothing.

I am here today to lay my complaint.

We all know ETC was man’s overused slave but for the past 5 years Humans have used me way too much and I am losing my originality.

I know we are slaves to man and they can use us how they wish, but mine has gotten really worse since the invention of man’s new companion-The Internet.”

LMAO and ROTFL nodded in agreement while ETC murmured “Anofia” in irritation.

LOL continued.

My fellow kinsletters all I am asking today is for help, just the same way we helped Mazi ETC years back.


In memory of Late Chinua Achebe
