    The English Language

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

    Let's face it . English is a FUNNY 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 come 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 the preacher praught.

    * If a vegetarian eats vegetables -- What the heck does a humanitarian eat?
    *Why do people recite at a play
    * Yet play at a recital?
    *Park on driveways and Drive on parkways
    <TABLE id=AutoNumber1 style="BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" borderColor=#111111 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0><TD width="50%">*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 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 observation, It ends.
