Articulate Joe, Jr.

Back when Articulate Joe was known as Mumbly Joe, it was because he came around to talking quite late. When he finally did decide to start talking, it was often unintelligible. Once while driving in the car to Walmart and being convinced he was talking about robots, I discovered that, to him, they were homophones. Some people say "they're their there" the same, some say, "marry Mary merry" the same, and my son said, "Walmart robot" the same. Later in his life, he got assigned the job of saying "three free trees" and making each word sound distinct.

Anyway, a few days ago, I became aware that Screamapilar has his own homophone tongue-twister: "bicycle skyscraper."

It's no accident that Articulate Joe calls Screamapilar [Articulate Joe] Junior.
