Why not do both, and dance too?
Dance and Laugh and differentiate.

or like the man who got run over
because he thought the "DON'T WALK" sign
was an ad for the bus company

Not all of us can carry a tune, hence we write and let the Elvis Presleys of the world interpret it for us.

You asked the question, Peter, so you provided the answer!

Your two posts encapsulate the history of the human race's invention of writing, except that dancing surely belongs to the pre-writing era (unless of course you mean table top dancing).

Isaac Asimov, in Asimov's Lecherous Limericks, recommended that limericks be sung.

Actually, the Gilligan's Island theme works well with Emily too
