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



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 a Guinea Pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig

If writers write, how 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 preacher praught

If a vegetarian eats vegetable
What the heck does humanitarian eat?
Why do people recite a play
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 form
By filling it out
And a bell is only heard once it goes
English was invented by people, not the computers
And it reflects the creativity of human race
(Which of course isn't a race at all)
That's why
When a stars are out, they are visible
And why is that when I wind up my watch
It starts
When I wind up this observation
It ends

 P/S : aa... so desuka??
