We Didn't Do 'Q'

In 1669 Neal invented the ellipses (...), however his first version was flawed. George suggested adding two more dots so that people would stop confusing it with a period. Now people correctly trail off dreamily when they encounter ellipses instead of an abrupt ending... (See how that works?) On a completely unrelated note, George and Neal teamed up in 1154 to invent the alphabet. Except for the letter Q.
