There's chess, and there's a game of chess...

Parody wrests the concepts and problems inherent in language use to ring truest...or,  "...frillions of legitimate new ideas, so that I can say the following sentence and be utterly sure that no one has ever said it before in the history of human communication:  "Hold the newsreader's nose squarely, waiter, or friendly milk will come to mand to my trousers." Perfectly ordinary words, yet never before put in that precise order...yet we all of us spend all of our days saying to each other the same things time after weary time:  "I love you, don't go in there, get out, you have no right to say that, stop it, that hurt, help, marjorie is dead..."
