Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What do you all call that tall building on BYU campus, and how do you pronounce the name you use? I've accepted that the new abbreviation is KMBL, but I like pronouncing it 'kumbluh' to make a point that it shouldn't have changed.
Any other thoughts on the name of that building?

A:

Dear you,

SWKT. Swicket. I will never acknowledge or accept any other name. 

On a completely unrelated note, I'm really disappointed that we don't nickname the School of Family Life Studies SFLS, which is pronounced as "sih-fil-is." Considering it's all about family planning, I think that's an apt nickname.

Dear chimp cherry chimp chimp cherry chimp chimpanzee,

A SWKT's a SWKT, as lucky can be.

Chimp cherry chimp chimp cherry chimp chimp chimp-aroo,

It's made with real chimp—and that's lucky too!

SWKT or ticket,

Dear Atticus,

I have not, and will never accept KMBL. It is the SWKT (pronunciation: swicket), and will be forevermore. If any of my hypothetical kids go to BYU, I will personally make sure to introduce the SWKT as the SWKT, and then disown them if they ever call it anything different.

Dear Jack Sparrow, 

I add my voice to the chorus. It's the SWKT (pronounced like Lemony Snicket except it's "swicket".) 

Cheers,

A:

Dear person,

It's the SWKT. Pronounced Swicket. I've heard that it was changed to KMBL because someone was offended. I think that's sad. If a building named after me got a nickname as cool as SWKT I would be totally excited.
