How Important are Words? (Post 29) ^(https://digitalculturesandtranslation.com/goto/https://sweetmotherlover.wordpress.com/2013/01/15/how-important-are-words-post-29/)
Writers are in love with words and so are comedians. However, I would say there’s a BIG difference between the spoken word and the written word. For example, I have no problem cursing like a sailor when I’m on a stand up stage. I think that’s because there’s a smoke-like quality to speaking. You say something – it may stun or shock or cause a laugh or a tear, but then it’s gone.
