apparently ‘hello’ is a bad word

Get A Brainapparently ‘hello’ is a bad word, and these dorks aim to remedy the situation.

In this friendly little ranching town, “hello” is wearing out its welcome. And Leonso Canales Jr. is happy as heck.

At his urging, the Kleberg County commissioners on Monday unanimously designated “heaven-o” as the county’s official greeting. The reason: “hello” contains the word “hell.”

“When you go to school and church, they tell you ‘hell’ is negative and ‘heaven’ is positive,'” said the 56-year-old Canales, who owns the Kingsville Flea Market. “I think it’s time that we set a new precedent, to tell our kids that we are positive adults.”

ahahahahhhahahhaa! kleberg texas. making texas and christians proud every day.

what’s next? removing all the ‘astroturf’ from stadiums? renaming ‘cocktails’? looking up words in something other than a ‘dictionary’? chasing an abstinence-cat through a field of abstinence-willows? changing the hebrew word for ‘acacia’? (shittim in hebrew)

(with thanx to daniel florien.)
