Man I Am Words

Rapping can be repetition sometimes. Sometimes you gotta highlight your words in a certain kind of way. So I always was a fan of sing-rapping. It was always funny to me a little bit, and I think that being funny and being able to laugh, even at yourself, is a form of flattery.~ASAP Ferg

Funny Words Yourself

For the uninitiated, 'Calvin and Hobbes' is a daily comic strip detailing the antics of an unruly six-year-old and his misanthropic stuffed tiger.

What 'SNL' taught me that was useful on 'The Watch' was, only put in bad words if they can get a laugh - there was no need for swear words and beeps in places that weren't necessary. Those beeps should only be in there when they mean something and it's important to the joke.~Akiva Schaffer

Words Me Laugh

Lapped in poetry, wrapped in the picturesque, armed with logical sentences and inalienable words.~Anatole Broyard

Poetry Words Logical

The dictionary is like a time capsule of all of human thinking ever since words began to be written down.
