Book Video: Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie on The Subject of Language

This week’s video is not exactly about books, but I found it while browsing Goodreads and thought it was simply hilarious. It’s actually a really interesting take on language in general, and the English language in particular, but the true genious is in the way he presents it, poking fun at academics and their sometimes silly rhetoric.

If you’ve never seen Stephen Fry’s and Hugh Laurie’s show A Bit of Fry & Laurie, I recommend you check out a few clips, Hugh Laurie’s many musical endeavors in particular.
