A friend showed me this today. Old school grammatical humor with comedian Victor Borge.

I saw this live many many years ago (I was 12 - you do the math). He made me laugh so hard that I wet my pants. First and only time I ever did that in public (after I stopped wearing diapers and training panties). It is one of the funniest routines I have ever seen, bar none. It became a standing joke in our family, if we were trying to explain something, to use the phonetic punctuation. Thanks for the blast from the past!

Had not run into that routine before. Amusing.

I have seen this before. I absolutely adore Victor Borge. He is an amazing, talented, and intelligent comedian. His life was pretty interesting, too.
