Oh, uh, that's interesting...

I was just listening to this station, and they were inviting callers to play what they called "The 'Uh' Game." Callers had to talk for 30 seconds on a subject without saying the word "uh." I think the longest one caller has managed to go is maybe 20 seconds. I really had no idea such vocal fillers were, uh, so prevalent in human speech.

Grrrr...and I also heard a great cover of the old Merle Haggard song "The Running Kind," but they didn't say who sang it! I HATE IT when they do that!
