They discuss the use of stuttering on the situational comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Season 9, Episode 7). Then they discuss a story out of the United Kingdom (see video below) regarding a 16-year-old high school student, Musharaf “Mushy” Asghar , who is fearful of taking his oral exams.
