Just sayin’

I heard from Twitter yesterday that Martha Stewart and Noam Chomsky were overheard chatting together. Not much in the way of coherent, whole sentences were ever reported (this is Twitter, after all), but the words “wars” and “jars” were frequently heard. Something both of them are passionate about discussing, no doubt.

I am speculating that Stewart would probably shown an interest in “jars” more than “wars”, while for Noam it depends on whether the topic is Political Science or Linguistics. If it was Linguistics, note that “wars” and “jars” have the same 3-letter endings but different pronunciations, opening up a whole host of juicy topics.

So, on the Noam Chomsky pie chart, he would have been 2/3 interested in “wars” and 1/3 interested in “jars”.
