A", "I" and "U" are vowels, notwithstanding the irrelevant fact that they are not included in the spelling of "VOWELS".

This suggests that the phrase "There's no I in team" was a slight victim of cherry picking, especially when considering that "there's no me in team" would, strictly speaking, be a bit more grammatical. sarcasm>There is an (annagram of) Randal in "People who don't understand how a proverb works" No, seriously this is just cueball being a smart-ass.

As an aside, it's interesting that it seems to come from baseball, a sport where players have significantly more independence compared to, say, rugby.There's no I in team, but there is an I in pie; there's an I in meat pie and meat is an anagram of team, so. The phrase "no I in team" dates from the 1960s in the USA with printed references [1] showing it is familiar to baseball pitchers such as Vern Law.

On a related note, in the International Phonetic Alphabet, an alphabet designed to spell words from every language in a completely unambiguous and straightforward manner, "team" would be rendered /ti:m/. The intention of the phrase is to state that, just as the letter "I" is not present in the word "team", doing things on your own is not constructive when working in groups.Of course, it's very likely that Hairy knows that orthography doesn't determine meaning, and could easily reply "There's also a 'u' in 'People who assume aphorisms are literal'".

It is easy to (falsely) conclude that, to follow this rules, there is each and every (finite) sequence in it somewhere. So let's say we analyse the first 10However it is (with enough processing time) possible to determine any finite amount of digits of pi. Just because it cannot be expressed as a decimal does not mean that every possible decimal sequence necessarily occurs. Shorn figure: No, but there's a "U" in "People who apparently don't understand the relationship between orthography and meaning. It can be used as a light reprimand to a team member who isn't cooperating, with the reminder that when working as a team one cannot think only for oneself, and must work in partnership with the rest of the team towards a common goal.
