English is a CRAZY language!

English can be as hectic as you let it be. In fact, it is funny how English can make no sense at all, sometimes. For many, English is an easy language to learn but if there is anything that would make it difficult to understand is that its logic - or lack of logic. For example:

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, and french fries were not invented in France.  We sometimes take English for granted, but what is the logic in Quicksand that takes you down slowly; boxing rings that are square in shape, 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 hasn't the preacher praught?  Why do people recite at a play, yet play at a recital? How can the weather be as hot as hell on one day and as cold as hell on another? 

Obviously, English was invented by people, which 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!!

Have fun.
