DUHHHHHHHH

Posted on Wed, Jul 14, 2010 at 12:31 AM

When did we all decide to replace vowels at the beginning of words with "UHH"?

"Paul has an UHH-lectric bike which he UHH-magines he will take with him to the UHH-lympics."

I challenge you.. spend one day listening to the way our language has eroded.. and it's not just youth.. it goes all the way up to our exalted best examples of speakers.. TV news readers. If you take me up on my challenge I guarantee that you will become more tuned in whenever you hear the "UHH" sound, and you will be motivated to steer children towards caring about how they speak.

Deterioration of language leads to the fall of civilizations.
