Kalo ada yang bilang bahasa Inggris itu gila, setuju ga? Coba, coba, cekidot dulu yang ini:

There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren’t invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat. 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? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese; so one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

Hoooo, kalo begitu saya setuju-setuju aja deh.
