Just 4 Fun # 35

Hola everyone! Howz life? Cool or rather hot and bothered?

Prescription

Hmm I wonder if it is the heat or can we blame it on English? ๐Ÿ˜‰

English isn’t the easiest language to figure out – need proof?

Here goes – just don’t hold your breath!

 

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 Englishย  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 speakingEnglish
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????

Just 4 Fun # 34

A long weekend which didn’t feel like one since mail alerts from the office nagged me no end ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Height of work pressure:

I was flashing my ID card instead ofย  unlocking the house door with the keys.

I don’t login to youtube thinking it will be blocked. Until I realize that I am at home.

I end conversations with friends saying, “Ok bye… in case of any issues will call you back”

After a hectic week, went to a movie. In the middle of the movie, when I wanted to check the time, I kept repeatedly glancing at the bottom right corner of the Theatre Screen.

I open my lunch box in the roadside to see, whether I am going to office, or coming back from office ๐Ÿ˜€

If you do any of these, it’s time for a break!

Okay? Now how about

na

K! Gotcha ๐Ÿ˜€

Just relax your mind

Relax

Treat yourself to a chocolate milkshake ๐Ÿ™‚

Shake

A shower perhaps

Water

Make sure to utilize every drop!

Cycle

Be careful! The trees are on a rampage – first they eat up houses, then cycles what next?

Hello friends! How was your day? I spent an exhausting weekend catching up on my allergies. Now myriad muscles are crying out in protest against the unwarranted exercise due to excessive sneezing. And it hurts the most when I laugh. Ah well enough of my woes – time to laugh a bit.

Vacation

I just returned from a short trip from my mum’s place undoing a month’s of hard labor ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

MathI am one of those people – are you?

AdviceTrue! Nobody else understands me better. But on second thoughts, I tend to misjudge myself the most too…What say you?

LifeSo darn true! Worse – I am dying for some hot crisp juicy jalebis…

And finally the latest claim…

Another Monday, another week time for some fun. But first my top trending rant for the week, month and season.

It’s HOT!

Eggs

Seriously – now that’s off the table let’s move on to lighter matters ๐Ÿ˜‰

And if only I had your weather…I wonder which is worse the cold or the heat. I guess the cold in winter and the heat in summer ๐Ÿ˜€

Hello everyone! Here we are at the beginning of another week which promises to be hot, hotter and hottest. The first bite of summer is the worst. And Delhi weather is possibly the worst. There’s hardly any space between winter and summer.

Enough of weather woes for today. Let’s look on the lighter side shall we?

Sometime ago I had shared a link of some priceless student bloopers. But perhaps you may have missed it. And it was pretty long. To give a brief update it is a collection of student answers to exam question and like someone said – the only time a student changes the course of history is during an exam ๐Ÿ˜€

So here I am with a chosen few ๐Ÿ˜‰

Without the Greeks, we wouldn’t have history. Poor chap, I do feel for him

The Greeks invented three kinds of columns – Corinthian, Doric and Ironic. Excuse me, Doric is rather Greek to me.

They also had myths. A myth is a female moth. Hahaha, a likely story!

One myth says that the mother of Achilles dipped him in the River Stynx until he became intolerable. Intriguing…

Achilles appears in “The Illiad”, by Homer. Homer also wrote the “Oddity”, in which Penelope was the last hardship that Ulysses endured on his journey. Actually, Homer was not written by Homer but by another man of that name. Distinctly odd

Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock. He was probably hemmed in by his wife.

In the Olympic Games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled the biscuits, and threw the java.The reward to the victor was a coral wreath. He had me at biscuits ๐Ÿ˜€

The government of Athen was democratic because the people took the law into their own hands.Sounds pretty familiar

There were no wars in Greece, as the mountains were so high that they couldn’t climb over to see what their neighbors were doing. There you have the solution to wars – build higher mountains.

When they fought the Parisians, the Greeks were outnumbered because the Persians had more men. This guy is going to go places!

I think it’s time to switch topics before I forget whatever little history I know…

BindiThose who agree raise your hands! ๐Ÿ˜€

Cell

Well what about you? Are you a prisoner too?

Monday! Oh boy what a day – nothing but geniuses like this everywhere

or this one

And I can’t help but think

Common sense

And agree that

Here’s something that is bound to cheer you up. What are Grandparents – in the words of 8-year-olds:

Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own.ย 

They like other people’s children.

A grandfather is a man, and a grandmother is a lady!

Grandparents don’t have to do anything except be there when we come to see them.

They are so old they shouldn’t play hard or run.ย 

It is good if they drive us to the shops and give us money.

When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.

They show us and talk to us about the colors of the flowers and also why we shouldn’t step on ‘cracks.’

They don’t say, ‘Hurry up.’

Usually they are fat but not too fat to tie your shoes.

They wear glasses and funny underwear.

They can take their teeth and gums out.

Grandparents don’t have to be smart.

They have to answer questions like ‘Why isn’t God married?’ and ‘How come dogs chase cats?’

When they read to us, they don’t skip.ย 

They don’t mind if we ask for the same story over again.

Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don’t have television because they are the only grownups who like to spend time with us…

They know we should have snack time before bed time.

They say prayers with us and kiss us even when we’ve acted bad.

Grandpa is the smartest man on earth!ย 

He teaches me good things, but I don’t get to see him enough to get as smart as him!

No wonder I ain’t smart at all.

That’s all from me this Monday folks ๐Ÿ˜€

So how do you think this week’s gonna be? I had a long weekend and now I am double dreading the return to drudgery. If only I knew how things were going to turn out…

forecast

Speaking of which

Horoscope

Well, actually same goes for me too ๐Ÿ˜› Oh well let’s not tread that path today…

A collection of some clever signages just for you

A sign in a shoe repair store: “We will heel you,ย  We will save your sole,
We will even dye for you!”

At an Eye Clinic : “If you don’t see what you’re looking for, You’ve come to the right place.โ€

On a Plumber’s truck : “We repair what your husband fixedโ€

On an Electrician’s truck : “Let us remove your shortsโ€

In a Non-smoking Area:ย  “If we see smoke, we will assume you are on fire and will take appropriate actionโ€

In the front yard of a Funeral Home: “Drive carefully. We’ll wait.โ€

On the back ofย  Septic Tank Truck: “Caution – This Truck is full of Political Promises”

At a Car Dealership: “The best way to get back on your feet – miss a car payment.โ€

At the Electric Company:ย  “We would be delighted if you send in your payment on time. However, if you don’t, YOU will be de-lighted.โ€

In a Restaurant window:ย  “Don’t stand there and be hungry;ย  come on in and get fed up.โ€

Time to say goodbye before you get fed up – see you next week ๐Ÿ˜‰
