Woe un2mnkind

A British company called Dot Mobile allows people to get text messages of classic pieces of literature. The catch: they aren’t in regular English. They are “shortened” with the terms you see in text messaging. For example, Romeo and Juliet ends with “bothLuvrs kill Emselves.”

This is pretty silly idea. Why not just read the book itself? It would take more time to decipher the text messages than it would to actually read it. And why would you want to read a classic on your cell phone? I don’t see any value in that.
