PostSubject: ENGLISH... Y U SO HARD!!!   Thu Jul 28, 2011 1:59 pm

I have been... errrr... directed to several grammar mistakes.
Well, actually... HORRORS. As you may know, English is my second language, so I get
easily confused by it (not withstanding my natural super powers of idiocy!) So, I sis a little
digging... now I don't feel THAT bad. Very Happy If you find something in TLRB... let me know.
Like rolling "a single dice" instead of "a single die".
To me that STILL sounds like dying alone and not about rolling a like plastic cube! Just Kidding

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy
of the English language!

English...



Y U SO HARD!!!!

  17. A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.
  18. To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

  23. How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?
  24. Why there is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger?
  25. Why there is neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
  26. English muffins weren't invented in England nor French Fries in France.
  27. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.

  29. A guinea pig is neither from Guinea (the country) nor is it a pig.
  30. Why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?
  31. The plural of tooth is teeth. Why isn't the plural of booth... beeth?
  32. One goose, two geese. Why not one moose, two meese?
  33. The plural of mattress is mattresses. Why is the plural of octopus octopi?

Nice!
Here another one:

49. Why do they call it "taking a dump" if you're not really taking it anywhere. They'd better call it "leaving a dump".

what about the word Fanny it means one thing to you in the U.S and another thing to us.

U.S Fanny = Butt
N.Z/U.K Fanny = girls private bitz. Embarassed

So when visiting Yanks talk about their Fanny pack we all look away.... Embarassed affraid

English is weird...
