What do we see once in a year, twice in a week and never in
The letter e.
I start with the letter e
and end with the letter e yet contain
only one letter. What am I?
How is the letter e
Both are the capital of England.
Those fun e
are as humorous as Dane Cook, huh? You know what else is no laughing matter?
Heckle, I must.
In this USA Today
blurb, one of the letters in comedian
is gone — just like the dog on which Stephen Wright spilled spot remover. Comedian
should showcase eight letters,
but only seven are part of the act. At 87.5 percent complete, the word is
somewhat recognizable. I’m getting a sense of humor.
This situation isn’t nearly as serious as Michael Richards’
set at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood, California, in 2006, but it’s
another case of a stand-up standing out for all the wrong reasons.
Former comedian Mitch Hedberg saw the importance of the
letter atop most eye charts. While performing in 2005 at the Improv in Ontario,
California, he told the audience, “I had a bad set here last night and they
added an e
to the end of the sign.”
Today’s misspelling, like Hedberg, can improve. Don’t change
your routine, comedian
following the m
with an e
, for me.
No laughs? Aw, man! I may as well change my name to John
Carter, because I bombed.
