An off beat ah counter script

TM Lucas is either a professional speaker or has a lot of professional speakers in his club in Calgary. This script for the role of Ah Counter looks like a joke that evolved when a bunch of them where chilling at a bar. Take a look at what they came up with.

Imagine an alternate world where speakers were paid on the basis of number of words spoken just like content writers are paid on number of words written. In such a world, every contract would have one clause “filler words are not counted as words.” Because nobody ever benefits from ah, umm, you know etc. We are not living in such a world but seeing how unwanted they are, it’s still a great idea to get rid of them. So as the Counter today, I will keep track of all such words used during the meeting and I will present this report at the end so that you know what to get rid of.
