Words Never Before Strung Together

It amazes me that of all the words that have been uttered by the gazillions of people that have populated the planet since the first rudimentary languages were formed, that there are still so many sentences that have never before passed human lips.
For example:
“Will you please staple your lime green jello to my vagina?”
Or:
“I am fond of propelling, at gargantuan velocity, flaming tarantulas out my anus in the springtime.”
See what I mean? What are the odds of anyone having ever said these things?
There is a theory that with infinity everything is not only possible but inevitable. But infinity doesn’t apply here. Once a sentence it uttered it is obviously knocked off the list. Of course there is really no sure way to know if these are in fact new and unique sentences but I’d be comfortable with wagering that they are.
It will be interesting to see what you, the reader, can come up with.

    i like the notion of this piece. i live on a massive continent less populated than new york city. sometimes when i’m standing in the middle of the desert i think – on such a packed planet with billions of people it’s amazing i’m the only person (at this moment) around for miles. reading your work reminded me of this.

  • Australia I’m thinking? Thanx for your comment.

    Though provoking and humorous too. And perhaps infinity does apply. Somehow the human ape got a hold of type writers and you just added to the list!

  • LOL!!! “Human ape”? Well, I never! I believe Wanderingauthor’s comment about your last sentence hit the mark. Yhanx, Bob.

    I’d even bet Robert’s last sentence may have added to the list. :0 I feel a raging thirst for mud shakes made from hippo dung. My right eyelid is constructing a Jovian orbiter in order to establish a colony of eyelids around Jupiter. I suspect if fire ants were not nibbling my brain with tiny silver pie forks, I could extend this list forever.

    Those were all easy, but what is even more fascinating is the thought that even more ordinary sentences may never have been uttered before. If you open a book, select a nine word phrase at random, and search Google Books, in many cases you will find one, unique example. How’s that as a testament to the infinite possibility of language?

  • So true. I started off this piece by stating how amazing this phenomenon is and the more I read comments like yours the more it hits home.

    Love the depth of your thinking. I often contemplate infinity and sometimes wonder if this is restricting or liberating.

  • Infinity ends when we stop thinking about it. Thanx for your comment.

    YES, AND IN STRINGING THOUGHTS TOGETHER OVER THE TOPIC OF INFINITY ONE BEGINS TO WONDER AT THE POINT OF IT ALL…
    I REALLY LIKE THE QUOTE FROM THE CHILDRENS CARTOON MOVIE “THE POINT”…
    “A POINT IN EVERY DIRECTION IS THE SAME AS NO POINT AT ALL”…AND I BEGIN TO WANDER EVEN IF THAT TRUE…
