Letís face it:
English is a crazy language.


.
.

There is no egg in eggplant or 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 arenít 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 donít fing,
grocers donít groce, and hammers donít ham?

If the plural of tooth is teeth,


why isnít 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 didnít 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 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 the weather be hot as hell one day
an cold as hell 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.
