Ernest's writing class presented their dream career reports orally. For fun, they counted the number of times the presenter said "like." And the results are um... like this:
The most prolific user of "like" was a girl with 48. Ernest was 3rd from the bottom, with 9. (He said 4 of them were legitimate uses.) The lowest use was 4.
They also counted "ums" but he didn't give me the data on that.
