EUROPEAN COMMISSION RULING ON THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
^Sadly, this is an almost exact description of the latest German spelling reform.
kindof a joke, but this actually happened at a friend's office:
Two secretaries work overtime. The guy who hands out fresh office supplies has already gone home when one of the secretaries runs out of paper.
She asks her colleague for a few sheets of paper. The other secretary unfortunately hasn't any left either but suggests: "how about taking some from the photocopier?"
"Excellent idea", the first secretary replies, walks to the machine and makes several copies of her last empty sheet of paper.
