English is a crazy language!

Klakar! Mcm agak lawak. Tp ade betulnye. Saper la yg kreatif sgt pemikiran smpi nk pk benda2 cani... Hihihi... Enjoy frens!

English is a crazy language..and u force us to learn it

Here's no egg in eggplant,no ham in hamburger, neither apple nor pine in pineapple,
English muffins weren't invented in England, nor do French fries come from France.

Sweetmeats are candies, sweetbreads aren't sweet nor meat. Quicksand works slowly, boxing rings are square, and guinea pigs are neither from Guinea nor pigs.

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, two geese. One moose, two meese? One index, two indices? You can make amends but not an amend? If you get rid of all your odds and ends save one, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? People recite at plays and play at recitals, ship by car and send cargo by ship, and have noses that run but feet that smell.

Your house can burn up as it burns down, you fill in a form by filling it out, and alarms go off by going on. When the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. How can inflammable and flammable mean the same thing? And when a car slows up, it slows down!
