When we would like to make clear the spelling of words, we use the international phonetic code.
For example, G for Germany, U for union, and N for New York.

One day, a gangster went into a restaurant and he noticed he forgot to bring his gun. He took out his cell phone and called his mate.

Gang:  Hi, I forgot to bring my gun.

Mate:   I can’t hear you very well.

Gang:   I forgot to bring my gun.

Mate:    I still can’t hear.

Gang:    Well, listen, buddy, G for justice, U for Europe and N for                         pneumonia.
