And now for some comedy: Fry & Laurie and language

For a little light relief, here’s a hilarious sketch from Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie – the latter now better known for affecting an American accent and playing Dr. House on FOX.

This sketch, from the first season of A Bit of Fry & Laurie on BBC, shows the duo discussing the very topic of this blog: language. As silly as the discussion is, Stephen Fry’s discussion points actually make a remarkable amount of sense. But maybe that’s the point!
