I love it!!! So creative, it pretty much sums up the complexity, inconsistency and difficulty of English language.

If English is  a crazy language, then why are we speaking it? most importantly, why are we teaching it?

Reminds me of the old advert "Nothing sucks like an Electrolux!" (it was a vacuum cleaner).

There ´s a funny cartoon here about a dinosaur who loves "words that make communication difficult". It also gives a name for this type of thing - good news for people like me who need to categorise everything : )
