The Alliteration Association of Aldershot have today announced they are to disband following a poor uptake in membership. The announcement shows the dwindling support for language based groups, as it comes just weeks after the closure of 'Fan's of: Poor Punctuation,'.
Founder of the group, Mr Malcolm McMillan, told us 'people ponder the pointlessness of a person's passion for pinpointing particular patterns and peculiarities in speech. For friends of finding funny functions for phonics, this is the thing that they thought therapeutic. Unfortunately, since someone suggested we started sharing silly stories on Saturdays, our membership, made up mainly of middle-aged men fell flat on it's face with figures falling from forty to fuck all.'
When asked what he now planned to do with his spare time, he told us that he would not give up on his passion for language and would start a group dedicated to limericks. 'I think it's OK, to spend your day, trying to talk in limerick. I've accepted in life, I won't get a wife, 'cos women think I'm a ........ OK, may have to rethink that one'
