Response to @university_of_pi: "what about the many words hypothesis?"

"I posted a video about the many-worlds hypothesis back on the Fourth of July called "Garden of Forking Paths," but truthfully, I am far more interested in the idea of the "many words hypothesis." Now I do not criticize spelling or grammatical errors here, so please don't take this that way; what this comment has done here is specifically called a Mondegreen, which is a linguistic quirk that creates entirely new meaning, in this case by inadvertently spelling one word as another real word. Tea_and_kophey did the same thing with the phrase "herd of pronouns," which due to its spelling implied that pronouns gather collectively in herds. I am sincerely fond of Mondegreens, and in this case, I would assume that the "many words hypothesis" is the theory that I talk too much."
