The Script For Today's Comic!
TOM (on the phone): Photos of wedding are in mail. I'll send bill in week. You'll love photo of your party!
(Tom hangs up. Karla looks on quizzically.)
KARLA: Was that a WORK call?
TOM: Yes! I'm saving time on phone!
TOM: See, Russian language has no word for "the" or "a." Words are just filler; people understand intent just fine without extra verbiage.
TOM: So by dropping words "the" and "a" from speech, I save tenth of second per sentence!
KARLA: That's incredibly stupid.
TOM: Is it any dumber than when kids type "ur" to avoid spelling out "your"?
KARLA: THAT'S DUMB, TOO!
