A Few Words About the English Language: Gulman and Ismo, Carlin and Gallagher

#byLizPublika


English is weird. We write letters that we never pronounce (silent letters). Words that are spelled the same have completely different meanings: I don't object to that object. And there are certain inconsistencies that are hard to ignore, like parking in drive-throughs and driving on parkways. So, to celebrate this quirky language, we've compiled some pretty great standup that you can check out below!
