Yes, Toastmasters prohibits sexual references during meetings. But it takes a wise person to find a way around such restrictions. Here is a script for the role of Ah Counter by TM Matthew from New York where he dangerously dangles over the golden rules. See if you can do the same as well.
RELATED: How to do the role of Ah Counter?
There are some places where uttering “ahs” and “ums” is expected. In fact, it’s more than expected, it’s appreciated. Sadly, a pubic stage is not that place. On a stage, using these words may either leave your audience confused, or worse, remind them of the place where it is expected. As a speaker, it is therefore best that we avoid uttering them while on stage.
As the Ah counter today, I will help you in achieving this. My role is to keep a track of all filler words such as ah, um, you know, basically etc. that speakers use during their speech. I will present my findings when called upon by the General Evaluator in the third session.
Thank you so much TM Matthew for this naughty (winks) submission.
