Placeholder Image
When they were putting together the English alphabet, the letter X got the short end of his two sticks. Rumor has it he showed up late - along with Y and Z - and the threesome almost didn't make the alphacut. But that would have left us with 23 letters and important words and phrases such as, "Yes," "Excuse me" and "Zamboni" would have been impossibilities, so the latecomers merely got pushed to the end of the line.
