Random Thoughts, Again

madcvr

Let’s face it – English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger. If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of booth, beeth? If teachers taught, why didn’t preachers praught? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? 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. One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? I give up.
