Helen’s Dad writes, “Not sure of MRP’s policy on not-so-trendy, alternative spellings, but would you draw the line when it comes to a school bus?”

MRP is not so much a big fan of the krazy spellings (there’s a bakery in the area called Keltic Krust, which I find annoying) and I think Helen’s Dad might have a good point about the whole schoolbus thing. What do others think?

  2. Oh my, yes, this IS obnoxious. What’s next? “KIDZ BU$”? It’s the same reason I find the “z” in “Bratz” so odious. I wish people would stop thinking zany spellings and silly fonts (I’m looking at you, Comic Sans) are clever ways to drum up kids’ interest. Kids are not idiots.
