The English Language-With Apologies to Dr. Seuss

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 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.

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?

Ode For My Dad.

This is one of my dad's favorite pieces of music (along with Take Me Out To The Ballgame). It was played at his funeral 13 years ago. So dad, this may not be as regal but it made me think of you. Smile.

Update----STILL Taking A Break

Just letting you know I am still on a creating break. Working on the house and was hoping the sofa slug would go to Korea. I will be back as soon as the humidity goes down and my paper uncurls.

This Is Too Bizarre.

Allison had this up so I decided to try it. This is the result. Bizarre because I totally HATE bananas and it's the one fruit I will NEVER eat!

I Are a Banana

You are mellow, easy going, and a total softie on the inside.

People find it really easy to get along with you. You suit most tastes.

And while you're very sweet, you're not boring or ordinary.

You have an attraction to the exotic, and you could show up anywhere... doing almost anything!

You are spirited, energetic, and a total kick to be around.

You're also quite funny. Your sense of humor is on the goofy side, and it fits you well.

Thank You Spammer Jerks

I just had to add word modification back on this blog. I had taken it off almost a year ago. All of a sudden, everyone is getting inundated with it. Even my spam addresses are laden more than usual. Just when it seems the scum are not as prolific.....someday, the tables will be turned.

AnyBody Who Signed Up For Random Blog CAndy???

Remember this back HERE? Well, I am sending out the last randomly chosen names-since there were only about 10 left, I just packaged up something for the last 10. I also did about a half dozen overseas, which had to be lightened a bit because I am not paying 50 bucks to send a small package-the US postal service is nuts!

But you will get a small prize, so I hope you enjoy it. Stupidly, I had a card to insert into each one and sealed and taped them all before I remembered, so maybe I will find some un-needed (WTF is that?) cash floating around after the house and dental work is finished and send them out on a whim. I am sorta addled right now. You all KNOW why!

So enjoy this nutty bumper sticker list I came across while waiting on the Internet to co-operate. I need to plaster my car!

My husband and I divorced over religious differences. He thought he was God and I didn't.

I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.

I Work Hard Because Millions On Welfare Depend on Me!

Some people are alive only because it's illegal to kill them.

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Don't take life too seriously; No one gets out alive.

You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me

Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.

Earth is the insane asylum for the universe.

I'm not a complete idiot -- Some parts are missing.

Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

NyQuil, the stuffy, sneezy, why-the-heck-is-the-room-spinning medicine.

God must love stupid people; He made so many.

The gene pool could use a little chlorine.

Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.

Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?

Being "over the hill" is much better than being under it!

Wrinkled Was Not One of the Things I Wanted to Be When I Grew up.

Procrastinate Now!

I Have a Degree in Liberal Arts; Do You Want Fries With That?

A hangover is the wrath of grapes.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a cash advance

Stupidity is not a handicap. Park elsewhere!

They call it PMS because Mad Cow Disease was already taken.

He who dies with the most toys is nonetheless dead.

A picture is worth a thousand words, but it uses up three thousand times the memory.

Ham and eggs. A day's work for a chicken, a lifetime commitment for a pig.

The trouble with life is there's no background music.

The original point and click interface was a Smith and Wesson.

I smile because I don't know what the hell is going on.

John Mellencamp Fan?

So grab your freebies while you can. If the above link doesn't work, try this one. In both cases you MUST enter this code LDLF6.
