  • MAN: When I was younger, in Miss Cornvinder's class, I

  • wrote a story about a sheep who could speak.

  • And do you know what she did?

  • She put a big X--

  • [BUZZ]

  • over the word speak.

  • It turns out that speak is spelled with an A in it.

  • E-E makes the E sound in sheep.

  • [BAA]

  • But if you want to make the same E sound in speak, you

  • have to use the E-A. And so I said, well, how I know which

  • one to use, Miss Cornvinder?

  • And she said that she would teach us these

  • one word at a time.

  • And so I sat in my seat without a peep, and I learned

  • sleet and sleep and feet and fleet and weed and need and

  • all the words that use E-E. And then I learned speak and

  • read and mean and lean and clean and bean and all the

  • words that use E-A.

  • And that just made me want to scream!

  • In fact, I think I will!

  • [SCREAMS]

  • Ee!

  • And [SCREAMS]

  • ea!
