What we have here is a failure to communicate

What we have here is a failure to communicate – A thought on the inability to communicate, from the comedic mind of Tom Lehrer

Speaking of love, one problem that recurs more and more frequently these days, in books and plays and movies, is the inability of people to communicate with the people they love; Husbands and wives who can’€™t communicate, children who can’€™t communicate with their parents, and so on.  And the characters in these books and plays and so on (and in real life, I might add) spend hours bemoaning the fact that they can’€™t communicate.  I feel that if a person can’€™t communicate, the very least he can do is to Shut Up!
— Tom Lehrer, ‘€œThat Was the Year that Was’€
