"u" after "q". Why? Why not just have "q"?

Yes, the e is a bit superfluous too!

Especially queuing for the knee clinic.

how would you spell queuing without the u though? qeing? grin

qing.
We all know that q makes the kew noise.

Actually, 'kew' is the letter name, we teach the sound 'kw' in phonics. 'Queue' is a tricky word that uses unusual grapheme/phoneme correspondences ie isn't spell how it sounds.

Yes, those darn unusual words. Why bother with any of them. If only we used grunts to communicate.

Urgh, urgh ururugh urgh.

I'm a scrabble player, there are plenty of words with a Q in with no U. I love non Qu words.

Qatar
Qi
Tranq
Qis
Qat
Suq (ok, it has a U but not after the U)
Qadi
Qaid

There's loads more but I can't remember them.
