Examples of Pseudonumerology® in use:
Telephone extension numbers

It is very satisfying to know ALL the telephone numbers of the people you work with.  You are no longer dependent on your phone list or your programmed telephone.  It may take a few hours for you to use the Peewee Web Pseudonumer to make a long list of silly pseudonumes for a series of extension numbers, but you will have fun doing it.   It is fun to label (or insult) your colleages by making silly pseudonumes for them.  Once the list is made, it can be used by anyone at the institution (anyone who knows how to pseudospell).  Presenting, explaining and improving such a list can be entertainment at a social gathering.

It is only fun to make pseudonumes for people that you know personally, so reading the lists below might not seem so interesting.  The first is a list of personal names, the second is a list of phone numbers at a major newspaper.

(Didn't learn the pseudonumerals?  Learn to pseudospell now!)
