As the title suggests: English Vocabulary is a Disaster.
I've explained this a bit in my earlier myTakes how a vest, undershirt or Wife beater is the same for many non native speakers.
That ☝️ is a vest for me (or maybe if you're American - it's a wife beater)
So anyways, getting back to the topic. Sometimes it can be a real pain if you don't find the right words to describe your emotions. Here's one incident:
The Priest's Lack Of Vocabulary
A Priest used to keep chickens at his church.
One evening, one rooster from his lot went missing. So, at the evening mass prayer, the Priest asker, "Who has a Cock?"
All MEN Stood Up
Priest: "No, I mean, Who has seen a Cock?"
All WOMEN Stood Up
Priest: "No no, I mean, Who has seen a Cock that isn't theirs?"
Half the WOMEN Stood Up
Priest: "For heaven's sake, Who has seen my Cock?"
*All the NUNS Stood Up*
That was just one example. Apart from that there are a lot of discrepancies in English spellings!
Take for instance Philippines (country) and the people living there are called Filipino.
Pronunciation of Minute -
Minute(n.) -> Me-nit
Minute(adj.) -> My-n-you-t
And then there's the usual scoundrel 'X'.
'X' doesn't have an identity of it's own, it steals the sounds of 'KS' and 'Z' - like: BOX & XYLOPHONE
Same for 'C', 'K' & 'Q' - it's like the same alphabet having split personality disorder. And on top of that C also robs S off his duty - CEREAL (S *singing to himself* - Justin Beiber's That Should Be Me)
(By the way, don't judge me for calling S - 'him'. The alphabets are f'king gender fluid and I'm a guy, so I prefer to refer to it as a guy)
I guess y'all get my point now. So before I go, I'll just yell my slogan #MakeEnglishGreatAgain
(America, already is great, it doesn't need any more greatness)
As usual, I didn't mean to offend anyone - especially with the priest joke. If you were offended - I sincerely apologize for that.
Enjoy the joke & Have a Nice Day 😊
