There's a reason there are no B batteries. (1:35)

I NOTICED THAT THERE ARE NO

B BATTERIES.

I THINK THAT'S TO AVOID

CONFUSION, 'CUZ IF THERE WERE,

YOU WOULDN'T KNOW WHEN SOMEONE

WAS STUTTERING.

"CAN I HELP YOU?"

"YES, I WOULD LIKE SOME

B BATTERIES."

[LAUGHTER]

"WHAT KIND?"

[APPLAUSE]

"B BATTERIES.

[APPLAUSE CONTINUES]

"WHAT KIND?

"B BATTERIES."

AND D BATTERIES,

THAT'S HARD FOR FOREIGNERS.

"YES, I WOULD LIKE D BATTERIES."

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

ONE OF MY FRIENDS HAS A STUTTER,

AND YOU KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE

THINK THAT'S A BAD THING.

BUT TO ME, THAT'S JUST LIKE

STARTING CERTAIN WORDS WITH

A DRUM ROLL.

[LAUGHTER]

THAT'S NOT AN IMPEDIMENT.

THAT'S SUSPENSE.

WHAT'S HE GOING TO SAY?

CAR?

OR CARNIVAL?

CARBURETOR.

EH.

SORT OF IS SUCH A HARMLESS

THING TO SAY, "SORT OF."

IT'S JUST A FILLER, SORT OF.

IT DOESN'T REALLY MEAN ANYTHING.

BUT AFTER CERTAIN THINGS,

SORT OF MEANS EVERYTHING.

LIKE AFTER I LOVE YOU.

[LAUGHTER]

OR YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE.

[LAUGHTER CONTINUES]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
