The English Language
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 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
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
But when I wind up this observation,
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!, people, stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t
forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement,
achievement, and success have no meaning.” Benjamin Franklin
“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to
become a man of value.” Albert Einstein
“Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into
thinking they can’t lose.”Bill Gates
“A true friend is one who overlooks your failures and
tolerates your success.” Doug Larson
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
The Committee for the Reduction of Redundancy and the Antiproliferation of Repetition has
decided not to meet until they have their first meeting and thus will not be meeting until the first time.
Their Pre-meeting Statement wanted to make this clear before they had their first meeting, so that it would not be unor confusing.
So their first meeting will actually be their first meeting and they will not have a meeting before the first meeting.
This should avoid having people show up for their first meeting before it is held, since to do so would be confusing
to those who did so and this is what they want to avoid by reducing the confusion and lessening the repetition. 😳😳
Tuesday’s’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“This is our home. This is our fortress. This is where we make our stand.”
Answer: Avatar: The Way of Water!
These are the last lines spoken by Jake Sully, played by Sam Worthington, in James Cameron’s sumptuously depicted CGI endeavor, “Avatar: The Way of Water”. The film has come to a climactic battle involving his people, the Na’vi beings, against the humans of the Resources Development Administration (RDA) who seek to colonize the planet Pandora. After staving off the attempt, but losing loved ones in the defense, Jake prefaced that quote’s realization with “I see now. I can’t save my family by running.”
