Another letter W pronunciation viewpoint sign now

Why must the letter "W" have to be pronounced "double you" or "dubla-vay?" Every other letter in the alphabet has one syllable. Why is this letter so important as to warrant 3 syllables? And a lot of the times, it is a silent W. How terribly inefficient-especially in todays compu-centric world! (Think double you double you double you dot com.) Also, every other letter has the sound which exemplifies it, e.g. S has the ssss sound, R has rrr. (note: I realize H doesnt have the huhhh sound, but that is for another petition.)

After deep thought, I narrowed it down to three logical choices for a new pronunciation of the letter W:
1) Way
2) Wee
3) Wuh

Wee wouldnt work, because it sounds too close the vee, thus increasing DWI charges by a factor of 11\%. Enough on that.
"Wuh" just doesn't work. We take W from being too drawn out to being too terse; it's a form of reverse discrimination. Also, there is a precedent set: most letter pronunciations end in a vowel sound. Finally, this change would cause millions of toddlers to believe there is a spectral letter "whex," which we would have to crush out their little minds like Santa Claus and unicorns. Don't we have enough problems harnessing the dreaded letter "elimminnow?"

The only conclusion that can be reached is the letter W should be pronounced Way. It makes the alphabet just hum along nicely, like a stream train gliding in the clouds over Greenland. Think of this: tee you vee way eks why zee. The neatest thing about this change is that you would be able to say way X, which makes you sound like you own a surfboard and drink Mountain Dew.

I recognise that there is another petition out there with the same purpose, but with a different conclusion. In the spirit of recognising different intellectual viewpoints, and because though my thoughts on the subject were personally original but then again unknowingly unorginal (?), I link here to that petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/letterw/petition.html
