17th Letter of the Alphabet, Letter Q

Seems letter Q is missing.. Rumor has it, it may show up somewhere else..

Alex differed this letter to yours truly, so even though this is not from Alex's sublime mind, it shows he trusted me enough to let me have a go at it.

17th letter of the Alphabet, Letter Q

I have been asked to post a little something on here from a friend who is doing a post series. He has been writing a little something about every letter of the alphabet starting with A and going on from there. So before you read the rest of my post you should take a look at his by going here sublimation blogification and then come back to me, as he has asked me to write something about the letter Q.

Q is the the first stooge of the alphabet's three stooges, the others being X and Z. He is the quintessential leader of the pack, coming before the other stooges, having more uses in the Basic English language than Z, and X cant seem to start any words on his own. As the leader he is often questioned by the rest of the alphabetorium for his quick dismissal of Y as a stooge, He quickly and quietly answers that vowels cant be stooges. If being first wasn't enough for X and Z, then all Q does is point out his uniqueness and how he is the only one of the three who has a sidekick pretty much at all times. You see, U cant seem to stay away from Q and that usually gives Q the upper hand when faced with a quandary from his fellow stooges. As for the times when U is not there, well they aren't called stooges for nothing...

This brings me to my favourite Q word: Quagmire, pronounced kwag-ˌmī(-ə)r. This is my favourite word for two reasons, one it sounds unique and funny which fits the stooges just perfectly and the other is the many uses it has in our language, with a first name being one of them. "Quagmire, was in a bit of a quagmire for having too much fun with those girls" or "Quagmire was stuck in the middle of a quagmire, all because he didn't take the time to survey his surroundings" and finally putting them both together just solidifies that Q definitely is the head stooge of the alphabet "Quagmire found himself all alone in his quagmire while the quagmire continued to present itself unsteady and quagmirific, leaving him in one too many quagmires for his liking"

For those of you still with me, I hope that my last sentence didn't leave you in too much of a quagmire in figuring out the meaning of it all. After all a stooge is a stooge is a stooge, and so "Q" is now immortalized.
