Now I’ve heard it all.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is being accused of sending secret messages via acrostic. At issue is a veto message he sent to a state assemblyman named Tom Ammiano who heckled him during a recent speech. Check out the first letters of each line, which appear to reflect the real meaning behind the governor’s note:


According to his spokesman, the acrostic in the governor’s message is just some sort of unfortunate coincidence:

“My goodness. What a coincidence,” said Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear. “I suppose when you do so many vetoes, something like this is bound to happen.”
Forget the Terminator or the Governator. Maybe we should call him the Versinator from now on?

  1. I’m not going to lie, but I think this is insanely clever. My dad is masterful at describing things in ways that are insulting but bring pause to the insulted party. For example, his favorite terminology to convey the same message as the Governator’s message is: “go engage in self-copulation.” Love it.
