Default Re: The Origin of "Phunnel"

We use ph in phone because of etymology.

We use f for funnel because we are sane.

Hipsters use ph for funnel because they failed english and think they are cool for it.
This is just as annoying to me as people who self title each other "basha" when smoking on their "Quh-lyle May-Moons". Its a Turkish title either given to you or your ancestor but never self applied. When it is used socially, someone else calls you that, out of respect. (Sorry for that mini-rant. I hate hookah hipsters with a passion.)

When hookah stops being a fad, I'll be happy again.
