The Letter 'U'

It's nationalism day here at work.
The eternal struggle between those who spell it 'colour', vs 'color'. Our editor (who happens to be american), is storming about the halls, complaining about canadians with their extra 'U's and our spelling of 'defence'.

Sadly, our games have been going out with american spelling for the last 10 years and each time, a little bit of me dies.
Even our technology has turned against us - MS Word is contantly trying to get me to get rid of my U's. Where will it end?

Don't give in to the power of the lowest common denominator! Use your 'U's.
Fight for the Queen's English. Fight for Canada!

If you insist on this misplaced prideful misspelling, I'm going to start spelling a--hole with a you- I mean, a 'u'.

Love, The Editor
