Quirky cards redux
This idea normally would be confined to a single column, but it’s about to break out into a multi-million dollar copyrighted business. Join the fun; devalue your portfolio.
We at QuirkyCards have decided to go all-in and rename ourselves KwirkyKards. This is our homage to the letter “K” which we feel is the most abused and underused letter in the English language. We object to the fact that the sound for “Kw” is substituted for by the unpronounceable “Qu.” Our proposed changes:
Kwik for Quick
Kwest for Quest
Kwestion for Question
Kwabec for Quebec
Kwart for Quart
Kwell for Quell
Kwazar for Quasar
Dabuke for Dubuque
Not permitted: Duque for Duke, Puque for Puke, Luque for Luke. As for KKK, think Kook.
Now it’s up to you to have fun with the idea. We at KwirkyKards have better things to do - such as design a logo (free submissions accepted).
