from Dënver’s Los Bikers
my life changed forever when i found out the word “slang” was actually slang for “shortened language”

Two scientists walk into a bar:
"I’ll have an H2O."
"I’ll have an H2O, too."
The bartender gives them both water because he is able to distinguish the boundary tones that dictate the grammatical function of homonyms in coda position as well as pragmatic context.
