The idea came from a flea-market operator, Leonoso Canales, 56, who told the San Antonio Express News, "I see hell in hello. It's disguised by the o, but once you see it, it will slap you in the face." Mr Canales now plans to go to Texas Governor, George Bush, to propose it as the state's official greeting. Reuters
