    Let's face it: English is a stupid language. There is
    no egg in the eggplant, no ham in the hamburger, and
    neither Pine nor apple in the pineapple. English
    muffins were not invented in England; French fries
    were not invented in France.

    We sometimes take English for granted. But if we
    examine its paradoxes we find that Quicksand takes you
    down slowly, boxing rings are square and guinea pig is
    neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

    If writers write, how come fingers don't fing? If the
    plural of tooth is teeth, shouldn't the plural of
    phone booth be phone beeth. If the teacher taught,
    why didn't the preacher praught. If a vegetarian eats
    vegetables, what the heck does a humanitarian eat?
    Why do people recite at a play yet play at a recital?
    Why do people Park on driveways and drive on parkways.

    You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language
    where a house can burn up as it burns down and in

    which you fill in a form by filling it out. And a
    bell is only heard once it
    goes!


    People, not computers, invented English and it
    reflects the creativity of the human race (which of
    course isn't a race at all). That is why when the
    stars are out they are visible, but when the lights
    are out they are invisible. And why is it that when I
    wind up my watch it starts but when I wind up this
    story it ends? And there's more...

    Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults
    enjoy
    adultery? If love is blind, why is lingerie so
    popular? Why is the man who invests all your money
    called a broker? Why is a person who plays the piano
    called a pianist, but a person who drives a race car
    not called a racist? Why are "a wise man" and "a
    wise guy opposites"? Why do overlook and oversee
    mean opposite things?

    If horrific means to make horrible, does terrific mean
    to make terrible? Why isn't 11 pronounced onety-one,
    since 22 is pronounced twenty-two? If lawyers are

    disbarred and clergymen defrocked,
    doesn't it follow
    that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted,

    cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons
    debarked and dry cleaners depressed?

    Why is it that if someone tells you that there are 1
    billion stars in the universe you will believe them,
    but if they tell you a wall has wet paint you will
    have to touch it to be sure? If you take an Oriental
    person and spin him around several times, does
    he
    become disoriented? If people from Poland are called
    "Poles," why aren't people from Holland called
    "Holes"????

    Someone sent it to me and I attached it so my fingers ain't hurting.

    Hey guys wots up, are you trying to provoke me or something, how come you started speaking a different language I don't understand when I said yoruba makes more sense, I still maintain Yoruba is the best, that's why you all speak it inspite of your own! :p :cool:
