Proposed Evil Laugh Word Moratorium

28 Oct 2007


Look, I've done it, you've done it, we've all done it. However, I think maybe it's time we all(*) stop. So, I would like to formally propose a nearly( *) universal moratorium on the use of certain evil laugh words -- specifically: BUWAHAHA, MUWAHAHA, and all similar variants, including those with internal hyphenation. I'll repeat: I've been guilty of this as well from time to time. But no more! Following proper parliamentary procedure, anyone care to second this motion?

(*) Under the proposed moratorium, it would still be okay if cartoonist Scott Adams were to continue the practice. Hence, if the motion is approved, the following instructional graphic would be consulted by all writers (including bloggers and commenters) when necessary:

This moratorium could put a stop to my plans of world domination: what now will I say when I have conquered humankind?

I would also recommend that you notify Dean Kamen, as any day now fleets of laser-armed "segway"-riding robots will be springing forth from his island hideaway to commence with evil mayhem.

I would like to bring an end to the use of the term IMHO, because I always forget what it is, and have to look it up on Urban Dictionary.
