Why the English Language is Chaotic:

We speak of a box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes.
You may find a lone mouse, or a whole nest of mice,
But 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?
When I speak of a foot, and you show me two feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
We speak of a brother, and also of brethren,
But though we say mother, we NEVER say methren!

That's what we get for having a bastardized whore of a language.

Hey I'm going to put you on my friends list, but it's going to be on Teen_Cthulhu's list. I'm trying to even out the friends I have between the accounts I have. I never if ever post on that account, so you don't have to worry about more crap.

No I will not eat green eggs and ham
I won't eat hem or hameses
I won't eat them with two James
making them James'

That's lame I'm tired
I'm going to bed
I need to stop this sham
I need to stop this Sam I am

This is no longer fun
Just shoot me with a gun
Just let it be done
I want to be shot in a house with a mouse
I want to be shot in a box with a fox
On a train or a plain
I'll even be bludgened to death with green eggs and ham
I'll even let you do it Sam I am.

I had a friend who wrote a punk song like that. "The plural for goose is geese, but the plural for moose isn't meese."
