I think we are fast approaching the time when the United Nations should start to think seriously about abolishing other languages. What's the point of Welsh, for example? All it does is provide a silly maypole around which a bunch of hotheads can get all nationalistic.

Speaking of comments, feel free to express your own opinion (keeping it civil, of course) in our own.
