+1 to zorg, for various reasons:
It's pronouncable. People can say zorg, and it's less syllables than z3c
if you manage to pronounce the latter.
* zorg sounds like an evil alien emperor
"Yes emperor Zorg, immediately!"
* zorg sounds like a very biological species of alien: Swarms of zergs,
I mean, zorgs, completely overwhelmed the Terran command post.
* zorg is actually a common word in Dutch. It means "care", and can be
used in contects like healthcare. Steve Alexander saw a van here with
the word "zorg" once and was highly amused.
