If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth, why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?
Then one may be that, and three would be those, yet hat in the plural would never be hose, and the plural of cat is cats, not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren, but though we say mother, we never say methren. Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him, but imagine the feminine, she, shis and shim.
Let's face it! - English is a crazy language.
There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England.
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.

Why is it that Pi R square, and cakes are round?

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?
Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the folks who grew up speaking English should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.
In what other 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?


How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on.
If Dad is Pop, how's come Mom isn't Mop?



A teacher walked into her classroom and said, “Today, children, we’re going to learn the definitions of words.  Today’s word is TRAGEDY.  Can anyone give me an example of a tragedy?”

Sam stood up and said, “Teacher, I know what a tragedy is.  If I throw my baseball to my brother and he hits it back to me, and I get hit in the mouth and get a tooth knocked out…that is a tragedy.”  “No,” the teacher replied, “that would be an ACCIDENT.”  Who can tell me what a tragedy is?” 

Sue stood and said, “If I’m taking a birthday gift to my best friend and it falls into the street and gets crushed by a car, and it’s lost forever…that would be a tragedy.”  “No,” the teacher replied, “that would be considered a GREAT LOSS.”  “Anyone else?” the teacher asked. 

Little Johnny, always known for giving stupid answers, stood up and said, “Teacher, I know what a tragedy is.”  “Oh, all right Johnny,” the teacher replied, expecting some off-the-wall response from Johnny.  “Let’s hear your definition of a tragedy.” 

Little Johnny said, “Let’s say that Hillary Clinton gets on a plane, and when it takes off, it explodes into a million pieces.  That is a tragedy.”  “Why, Little Johnny, you’re right,” the teacher said.  “Tell us how you came to that conclusion.”  Little Johnny replied…”After what I’ve heard from Sam and Sue, I just figured that if a plane exploded while Hillary Clinton was on board, it wouldn’t be an accident, and it sure wouldn’t be a great loss.”
