— Ace S! Finally! S!
Okay, you're going to think this is dumb, probably, as I did at first. CNN ran the following AP story.
The whole story is "S." And then "Copyright AP." Not super funny, maybe, but this Fark thread gets a lot of mileage out of it, with arguments about whether or not the story is biased, etc.
Thanks to Sinistar.
Uh oh, did you see the disclaimer? They've copyrighted "s." Now you can't uze more than three without violating fair uze.

To all thoce koncerned about the rickc of violating the AP'c kopyright on "s," I kommend the cubcitution of the letter "c," one of whoce two pronunciationc is identikal to it.
Of kource, for perfekt klarity we muct renounce the uce of "c" for itc alternate "k" cound, but really, how bad would that be?

It's really easy to get under Johnson's skin, and you need not be discourteous. Just ask resonable questions with whose basis he disagrees. He'll go berserk quickly.

ask youself: what demographic of the population uses a lisping "s" to
define its cultural norm? It's a shibboleth of Eth! And CNN is
complicit! (Complithit! heh.)
This "S" is just a teaser for a whole new series highlighting how mere
human sounds are now racist indicators. The "S" is just the beginning.
Soon, we'll have an expose on the virulent "SH" so problematic to certain illegal immigrant demographics.

S: "Well, Wolf remember without me we would hve just one of a lot of things"
Wolf Blittzer: "Are you a gay-Letter?"
S: "Let me me answer this way; I've seen the fronts and backs of all sorts of letters. I like it all."
WB: "I see. Let's move on to the situation in Iraq. There is a rumor going around in Washington that you let Vice President Cheney deliberately and unjustifiably insert you at the end of the term WMD. What's your response to these charges?"
S: " That was the intelligence we had at the time and I stand by my insertion."

Not 'S' as in Scotland.
'S' as in Scandi.
Those CNN buggers are trying to make it easier for the Scandis to take over in cahoots with their New York Money Men.
