A joke petition has turned into a meme and can change the English language
The author obviously did not expect such a reaction.
An unexpected petition appeared on the website Change.org. The author proposed to replace the English word No (No) Yesn’t (the negative form of the word Yes — Yes).
Originally written under the name Snowside did not set myself any serious goals. Screenshot of his petition he also posted in social networks. But people liked it so much his idea, they began to massively sign the document.

Change the word “No” in English “Yesn’t”
At the time of writing the news the petition was supported by about 29 thousand people (initially, the author hoped to get at least 100 votes).

This “Yesn’t” from me
Variation No/Yesn’t almost immediately became a meme and users of social networks began to make funny pictures with words and to offer all combinations of the letters N and O change to t Yesn’.

Change the No to Yesn’t is the most important job of the authorities.

Not only men, but “not men” and “not adults”.
