Funny Plurals In the English Language…..
We’ll begin with a box and the plural is boxes. But the plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes.
The one fowl is a goose but two are called geese, Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may found a lone mouse or a whole set 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 a foot and you show me your 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 should not the plural of booth be called beeth?
Then one may be that and three would be those, Yet hat in the plural wouldn’t be hose.
And the plural of cat is cats and 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,
So English, I fancy you will all agree, Is the funniest language you ever did see.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great weekend people, and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!
I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn’t it. Groucho Marx
I belong to no organized party; I am a Democrat.” Will Rogers

G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….
Three animals were having a huge argument over who was the best.
The first, a hawk, claimed that because of his ability to fly, he could attack anything repeatedly from above, and his prey had nary a chance.
The second, a lion, based his claim on his strength … None in the forest dared to challenge him.
The third, a skunk, insisted he needed neither flight nor strength to frighten off any creature.
As the trio debated the issue, an alligator came along and swallowed them all … hawk, lion and stinker.
Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “I can’t accept this; I don’t believe in guns. When my brothers and I would play Cowboys and Indians, I was always the Chinese railroad worker.”
ANSWER: Death to Smoochy! Sheldon Mopes (Edward Norton) said this to Burke Bennett (Danny DeVito) when they were in the restaurant having dinner. Bennett was Mopes’s agent. Burke gave the straight-laced Sheldon a gun as a gift, because he thought he might need one in the cutthroat world of children’s television. “Death to Smoochy” is a dark comedy that also stars Jon Stewart, Catherine Keener, and Robin Williams (who is absolutely hilarious in this one).
