“Thank you” and “Thanks”

The phrase “thank you,” even in its short form of “thanks” has too many letters – twice as many, in fact, as it ought to. I’m glad people have managed to dwindle it down to only three letters. The journey went as follows:

thank you
thank s
thanx
thnx
thx

Pretty interesting. I’m surprised actually that “th” isn’t simply replaced with “f” in texting and instant-messaging. Then you could simply type fx to say thanks.
