Pretty interesting… I’m not exactly sure who wrote it.  I originally saw this a few months ago inserted as the test blog entry in a fresh installation of the Joomla content management system (so maybe a Joomla programmer wrote it).  Now it seems to be spreading around in chain mail as well… thanks Ash ;-)  I looked into it far enough to confirm that there is absolutely no such study on this topic at an English university.  Anyway, it was interesting enough to post.  Okay, now everyone quickly send this to your favorite English teacher… I mean… Oaky, now erveoyne, qciukly sned tihs to yuor fvaortie Eginslh tahceer.
