Yes, that's the English language for you. Ha, I love the rhythm of this whole thing, but my favorite part was the "she, shis, and shim!"

this landed in my box this morning and it is rather amusing...


THIS DOES PROVE INTERESTING IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE TIME FOR THE
RIDICULOUS.

An Ode to the English Plural



We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,

But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.

One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,

Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.

You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,

Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.



If the plural of man is always called men,

Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?

If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,

And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?

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 there 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.



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?

We ship by truck but send cargo by ship...

We have noses that run and feet that smell.

We park in a driveway and drive in a parkway.

And 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.



And in closing, if Father is Pop, how come

Mother's not Mop?
