Let's face it, English is a stupid language.
There is no ham in a hamburger and neither pine nor apple in a pineapple. English muffins were not invented in England and French fries were not invented in France.Boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig!
You really have to marvel at a language where a house can burn up...as it burns down. And in which you fill in a form... by filling it out. A bell is only heard once it goes!
English was invented by people, not computers. That is why:
When the stars are out, they are visible but when the lights are out, they are invisible.
When I wind up my watch -- it starts
