Comment on American idiom

I'm watching the PBS special on the history of Broadway, called "B'way." In Episode 2, about the roaring 20's and the jazz age, there is this quote: "One humorist said that when we Americans get through with the English language, it's going to look like it's been run over by a musical comedy."
