“It has often been said by many people that men and women will never understand each other. This is very true. And it’s primarily an issue of communication and can, in fact, be traced all the way back to the very birth of language itself. In the primitive culture, which was, of course, so popular at the time, cavemen communicated entirely throug a system of grunts. This was a very simple system, comprised of three basic grunts:
-uhuwawak = I’m hungry
-uahhhuk = I’m sleepy
-uguguuug = and, I’m horny.
These three grunts permitted the cavemen to communicate literally any concept as heart desired.
Cavewoman, on the other hand, employed a subtly different system. Oddly enough this system was composed of exactly the same three grunts:
-uguguuug. But they could each carry any acceptable thousands of meanings. Depending on exactly how they were grunted ... uguguuug! ..”
