There is no use for the letter "c" it always takes on the sound of "s" or "k." I think that we should get rid of the letter "c" or that it should just take on the sound of "ch," and stop confusing young children. amirite?

"C" is for cookie, that's good enough for me

Then, when saying the alphabet:

A-B-CHEESE!

Bu-bu-but... My AB_'s? :C

AND NO SUPER SADFACE

So then things would be spelled ciken (chicken), cek (check), senter (center), and cinese (Chinese)? Yeah, kids won't be confused at all.

Actually if "c" took on the "ch" sound, "chip" would be "cip."

I think K is more pointless, all it does is make the same sound C already makes most of the time, and it doesn't do anything else!
Kick, cic, they both sound the same... :P K is useless! :P

This exact same point was mentioned in the Baby-Sitter's Club books.

Omg I was thinking about posting this when I was bored in gym like 2 weeks ago o.e When I'm in gym, I always think about random amirite posts but never post them...
And NO! Don't get rid of the letter C! The alphabet would be weird... "Alright kids! Let's sing it all together now! A, B, D..."

Isn't that what the OP is considering the "S" sound?

It makes an S sound, but if you put an S in there instead of a C, you get an entirely different word altogether.

Well, I wouldn't exactly blame the difference in pronunciation on the C/S, it really has to do with the fundamentals of the English language. Long I vs Short I. I agree with you though, the letter C is vital of course and OP is technically wrong. As a post though this is funny, to the blind eye it makes C look unnesessary... ;).
