In my opinion, the English alphabet is a pretty good alphabet. From when I was born to today, I have been exposed to this language every single day of my life. I cannot escape it, even if I wanted to. With there so many letters to choose from, there was only so much time until I ended up singling one incredibly random one for me to basically bully.
So I’ve decided on the letter “O.”
Now one thing I’m going to have to say is that this is all a joke. “O Fans” are REALLY sensitive when it comes to their favorite letter. They also lash out when you hurt their feelings. This is really strange because you’d think that they’d just go “Oh” and forget about it but I guess not.
With that very serious disclaimer over, we can now proceed with the blog post! Woohoo!
One of the biggest issues with the letter “O” is that it bears an incredible resemblance with the number O. Now you may think that was a zero, but no, it was just another O. A “0” is slightly skinnier than an O. This isn’t *much* of a problem online, especially when many websites’ fonts are made so that a slash is through the zero to make the difference clearer.
Problems arise in the real world when we have to write “O” and “0.” Handwriting styles can vary from person to person, and some people write O and 0 the exact same way.
It’s important to note, however, that if you’re actually paying attention to the context this issue doesn’t really exist.
And maybe my handwriting being kind of bad is also the problem.
One thing I have noticed in the letter “O” is that it is commonly found in very short words. For example cot, bot, lot, tot, so, toe, to, too, and two.
Do you see the problem? 3 of the words are literally the same thing. “O” is truly the letter of laziness, which is not exactly the most honorable attribute you could have as a letter in the alphabet.
Still don’t believe me? Well, check this out: ShOrt.
Did you see that? The letter O is in the word “short.” This is just undeniable evidence. If you still don’t believe me after this revelation, then you’re just part of the Pro-O sheeple (does this mean you’re a sheeperson?) controlled by the government.
Let’s look at the cursive form of O.
It’s literally the same thing as normal O with a few fancy curves.
If it were up to me I would make the cursive O resemble more of a triangle, just to spice things up a little. Circles are pretty overrated, and in my opinion, triangles are going to be the next big thing. I guess for now we’re going to have to deal with the letter “A” if we want anything close to a triangle.
This has been a pretty long blog post about the letter “O.” There’s only so much I can write about this single letter, so it’s probably time for me to GO.
