No bullshit, this post is called Funny English Language because the English language can be pretty funny because of how it’s interpreted.
The Funny English Language Is Wonderful
Take for example this made up tale about one of our Greens senators. Then again, it might be funnier if I substitute it for Pauline Hanson, her being such a political comedian and all. 😝
One Nation senator, Pauline Hanson, is touring live cattle export yards in the senator’s chauffeur driven car. Suddenly a cow jumps out into the road; they hit it full on, and the vehicle comes to a stop.
Pauline in her usual jaunty manner, says to the chauffeur, “You get out and check – you were driving.”
The chauffeur gets out, checks and reports that the animal is dead. “You were driving, go and tell the farmer, ” says Pauline, “I can’t afford to be blamed for anything.”
The chauffeur walks up the drive to the farmhouse and returns five hours later totally plastered, his hair ruffled and with a big grin on his face. “My god, what happened to you?” asks Pauline.
The chauffeur replies “When I got there, the farmer opened his best bottle of single malt whiskey. The wife gave me a slap up meal and the daughter made love to me.
“What on earth did you say?” asks Pauline. “I knocked on the door and when it answered, I said to them I’m Pauline Hanson’s chauffeur, and I’ve just killed the cow.”
I thought with all the crap Pauline has been saying lately that little story would fit in very well.
Yep, the English language has a lot of funny rules, too many to go through them here but one that I’ve always thought as odd is that we call a food server a waiter when it’s the customer that does all the waiting.
Finally, I have an image which I put together with The Creator which I think is hilarious.
