Words, Wurds, Werds.

Have you ever noticed that if you repeat a certain word enough times it begins to sound ridiculous? Take any word and say it over and over and over and before long it loses all meaning.
Try this: say "butter." Butter. Butter. Butter. Butterbutterbutterbutterbutterbutterbutterbutter. See? Now try to picture butter in your mind. Can you do it? Pretty weird, huh?
How about "shoe?"
It just goes to reinforce the fact that words are created by people, and they hold whatever meaning we assign to them. So if I were to decide that a telephone was now called microwave, it would be. Of course if I did people would look at me sideways when I talked about apps on my microwave. Actually that might be fun to try. Cheers.
