Ain't life grand??? Just when you think you're winning, you're losing again. I was considering declaring it a "mental health day". Just recently the 'MHD' and "air quotes" have joined our official language and are now in the dictionaries. Go figure. Sooooo, do you speak 'english'? Let's hope so *VBS* Try these on for size as you read them outloud....LOL
1-The farm was used to produce produce. 2-The dump was so full it had to refuse fefuse. 3-We must polish the Polish furniture. 4-I had to subject the subject to a series of tests. 5-The insurance was invalid for the invalid. 6-Upon seeing a tear in the painting, I shed a tear. 7-I did not object to the object. 8-The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert. 9- Since there is no time like the present, he decided to present the present. 10-He could lead if he would get the lead out.
And since we're talking about words..why is it there is NO egg in eggplant? No ham in hamburger? And neither pine nor apple in a pineapple? And...if you have a bunch of odds and ends, and you get rid of all but ONE, what do you call it?
