I found this funny joke by reading a book called "chat...chat...chat!". This is only a joke okay? I'm not really serious of what I wrote here.
Let's face it-english is a crazy language.
There's no egg in eggplant or ham in hamburger.
There is neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins were not made in England.
French toast and French fries? Nope, not form France.
Quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square,and a guinea pig is neither from guinea nor it is a pig.
And why it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce, hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't plural of booth beeth?
One goose: two geese. One moose: two meese?
If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
If vegetarians eat vegtables, what do humanitarians eat?
Isn't it weird that people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways?
How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? How can overlook and oversee be opposites, while a few and quite a lot are alike?
And where are all those people who are springing chickens or who would actually hurt a fly?
Isn't it crazy that a house can burn up as it burns down? And you fill a form by filling it out?And an alam clock goes off by going on?
English was invented by people, not computers, 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, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, i end it.
