Vhat’s One Letter Amongst Friends?

Sweden has finally accepted Dubya. Not the president, but the letter that’s his middle initial. You know, the one he mispronounces. This is big news since there is no natural-born “W” in Svenska, which is what they call their language. The few words that do begin with “W” were stolen – I mean, borrowed – from other languages, so dictionaries always lumped them in with the more popular “V”s. Since the Swedish Academy is including a section of “W” words now, the language officially has 29 letters instead of 28. Of course since they call the new letter “double-v,” they still don’t have a Dubya. Lucky stiffs.
