We were on the listening end of a lecture tonight, after dinner. There were a bunch of “first of all“s and “second of all“s and that was all normal. Then we heard this:
Continent is a brief word for …. paper. Kind of.
We were confused, so in an effort to clarify, I asked, “what is a continent?”
CONTINENT MOM! Continents are words to describe horses, bears, cows and other animals.
Me, grasping at straws: So, NOT a vowel?
Right. Not a vowel. A CONTINENT.
