Human Language is Stupid

I saw a headline on line that said "Huskies have some holes to fill." Of course this sparked my interest. Unfortunately it was one of those websites that humans have where you have to register to read the story. From what I could see of the article, they mentioned a "mating dance." Sounds intriguing!

Humans like to use the word "husky" to describe things that are not about us:

  • resembling, containing, or full of husks
  • hoarse with or as if with emotion
  • burly, robust, large

  • Why do humans waste some much breath with all their syllables when any husky can tell them that all they need is a simple "woooo?"

    Niki wanted me to share her latest haiku:
    Woowooo woo wooo woo
    Woooo woo'ooo woowoo ooo woo
    Woo woo woo woo woooo

    I think her eloquence speaks for itself.

    Where do they get the idea that we have holes to fill? We have lots of holes to dig. They fill, we dig.

    What I think is that humans are so lazy that they now expect us to fill the holes for them. They need to re-read our contract.

    My mom says "Ohmygosh you were sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute as a puppy!"

    I love Niki's haiku, I didn't know she was a poet! The brevity and complexity are such a lovely contradiction! If only humans were smart enough to understand our literature!

    Please thank your mom for me.

    I plan on featuring more of Niki's poetry in future additions.

    Fargo wanted me to let you know that he wrote a limerick!
