When you construct a sentence, word order matters, but space placement matters even more. (3:33)

YOU KNOW, IN OUR LANGUAGE,SPACE IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

THE SPACES IN WORDSCAN REALLY CHANGE THE MEANING.

LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT I MEAN.

UM, LET'S TAKE, FOR EXAMPLE,

"SCAR FACE."

THAT'S A TOUGH NICKNAME.YOU SEE "SCAR FACE."

YOU'RE LIKE, "OH, MY GOD.THIS GUY'S CUT IN THE FACE.

DIDN'T GET PROPER MEDICALATTENTION. WOW. WATCH OUT."

BUT "SCARF ACE"...

(laughter)

THAT'S, LIKE, NOT TOUGHAT ALL.

IT'S LIKE, "WHAT, HE'S GOODWITH SCARVES? I DON'T KNOW.

SEND HIM IN, AND I'LL KICKHIS ASS. THINK I CARE?"(laughter)

OR IF SOMEBODY SAYS TO YOU,"HOW DOES YOUR TV WORK?"

YOU SAY, "OH, RABBIT EARS."

VERY DIFFERENT ANSWERIF I SAY...

(laughter)

"RABBI TEARS."

(applause)

(laughs) "YOUR TV WORKSON RABBI TEARS?"

"YEAH, IT'S ANTI-SEMITIC.I DON'T KNOW."

(laughter)"IT'S JUST--IT GETSGREAT RECEPTION, THOUGH, SO..."

(laughter)

"NOT GONNA ARGUE WITH IT.IT'S JUST..."

OR IF YOU'RE HANGING OUTWITH SOMEBODY,

AND THEY SAY, "HEY, MAN,LET'S DO THIS THING."

(laughs) IT SOUNDS FINE.

BUT LET'S "DOT HIS THING."(laughter)

IT'S...(laughter)

"IT'S PAINSTAKINGAND DISGUSTING.(laughter)

"LET'S LEAVE HIS THING ALONEAND PUT DOWN THE MARKERS.

LET'S GO HOME."(laughter)

(laughs) OKAY.

I THINK THIS ONE'SVERY INTERESTING.

PRETTY SERIOUS SITUATION

IF SOMEBODY SAYS,"IT MIGHT BE FATAL"--

MY GOD--

VERSUS "IT MIGHT BE FAT AL."(laughter)

"OH, IT'S FAT AL.LET'S PARTY!"

(laughter)

"I WASN'T SUREWHO IT WAS GONNA BE.

(laughs) "FAT AL'S COMING?

THAT'S THE OPPOSITEOF FATAL."

(laughter)(chuckles)

OKAY.

IF SOMEBODY ASKS YOU, UH,

"WHAT FLAVOR JELLY BEANSDO YOU WANT?"(laughter)

(laughs) "ASSORTED"IS A FINE ANSWER.

(laughter)

"ASS OR TED"--

A CRYPTIC, DISGUSTING ANSWER.

(laughter)

"WHAT FLAVOR JELLY BEANSDO YOU WANT?"

(inhales sharply)"I WANT ASS OR TED."

(laughter)(chuckles)

WOW.

YOU SEXY MOTHER (bleep, bleep).(laughter)

"FRAN KNEED SHERMANIN HIS BALLS."

(laughter)

WHAT A BITCH.

(laughter)

IT BECOMES MORE INTERESTING

IF WE CHANGE IT TO "FRANK NEEDSHERMAN IN HIS BALLS."

(laughter)

IT'S JUSTA DEEP-SEATED DESIRE.

(laughter)(man) WHOO!

HE NEEDS HIM.

HE CAN FEEL IT DOWN THERE.

(laughter)(chuckles)

EVEN STRANGER WOULD BEKIND OF A TRANSGENDER,

KIND OF LOVE TRIANGLE.
