Victor Borge on his invented “Inflationary Language,” where he embeds incremented numbers in words:
See, we have hidden numbers in the words like “wonderful,” “before,” “create,” “tenderly.” All these numbers can be inflated and meet the economy, you know, by rising to the occassion. I suggest we add one to each of these numbers to be prepared. For instance “wonderful” would be “two-derful.” Before would be Be-five. Create, cre-nine. Tenderly should be eleven-derly. A Leiutenant would be a Leiut-eleven-ant. A sentence like, “I ate a tenderloin with my fork” would be “I nined an elevenderloin with my five-k.” And so on and so fifth.
