English is Crazy!

This article was send to me by a friend. Enjoy it!


English is really crazy!


There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins were not invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are
candies, while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted.
But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings
are square, and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce, and hammers
don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One goose,
2 geese. So, one moose, 2 meese? One index, two indices? Is cheese the plural of choose?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what
does a humanitarian eat?

In what language do 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
a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? How can the weather be hot as h*ll one day and
cold as h*ll another?

When a house burns up, it burns down. You fill in a form by filling it out, and an alarm
clock goes off by going on.

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.

From me; Have a nice English day!
Peace and love,
Angelbide Wink
