Back in the ancient days before e-mail, people used to send messages by what they quaintly called a telegram. Charges were by the word, regardless of the length of the word.
An infatuated young man was sending a mushy love note to his girlfriend. The message read: “Oozie loves Woozie Woozie Woozie Woozie Woozie Woozie”
“You can have up to 9 words for the same rate”, said the Western Union telegraph operator.
“Why not add another “Woozie” it won’t cost you any more.”
“No, thanks,” replied the young man.
“I think that would sound rather silly.”
