°:.Is diz EngL¡sh?.:°

..english language..



Have you ever wondered
why people have trouble
with the English Language?

Let's face it
English is an odd language.


There is no ham in the
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

Boxing rings are square
And a 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
Shouldn't the plural of
phone booth be phone

If the teacher taught,
Why didn't the preacher
If a vegetarian eats
What the heck does a
humanitarian eat!?


Why do people recite at a
Yet play at a recital?
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
By filling it out
And a bell is only heard
once it goes!


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 it is that when I
wind up my watch
It starts
But when I wind up this
It ends.

(c) ßy power!
