Webcomic #017c: Phonics Rant

"I'm told that that the letter 'y' is officially a vowel when it acts like a vowel," says the Vampire Lady.  "I had previously thought that 'y' was always a consonant that pretended to be a vowel when needed."
"Yes, my lady," says the middle-management reptilian humanoid (wearing a purple bathrobe).  "'W' is also a vowel sometimes."

"That is total B.S.!" she outbursts.  "In Wheel of Fortune, you spin to guess if there's a 'y' - they never let you buy a 'y'!  Hence, 'y' is a consonant."  To conclude her rant, she says, "I trust Pat Sajak and Vanna White in these matters."  Remembering what the reptile also said, she asks, "Wait, 'w'?"
