    Should February Be Renamed?

    What were they smoking when they named February? Try to properly pronounce that with a mouth full of crackers.

    Why not call it?
    1. Feberry
    2. Fibbary
    3. Noname

    - or - just give in to the popular pronunciation and call it

    4. Febuary?

    <ticks me off when this month comes around and I have to utter the name of the month. I run from people who approach me with that look of "What month is it?" in their eyes.>

    Re: Should February Be Renamed?

    Febuary would be fine with me. It's the only way to go. Right now it's a lose-lose. I mean if you pronounce it FebRuary, people think you're an idiot. However, if you pronounce it Febuary, then you feel a little dirty, so you try to just mumble it so that people can't really make out what it is you're saying.

    Re: Should February Be Renamed?

    All month names should be shortened to just three letters to save time, assist in texting, and avoid spelling mistakes.

    So, January becomes Jan. February becomes Feb. etc.

    Except for May - that should be lengthened to Maytober. Because May has had it good for too long now, and consequently must pay.
