Let's Face It. English Is a Stupid Language.
Seems like this proves that American-English is a stupid language, not that English is. If you remove all the American words/Americanisms you're left with very little but instances where the author doesn't understand the meaning of the word (sometimes in the context).
Well. .. about the hamburger. .. it was created by a man from HAMBURG, Germany.
haha @ the comic sans comment
Can't be taken seriously when the title is in comic sans.
English is a crappy language for a variety of reasons, just not any of those mentioned, which are all just puns. Puns exist in every language, and they exist because all human languages have words with multiple meanings. That doesn't mean that it's a less logical language; quite the contrary it makes it more efficient. Human beings almost never confuse the various meanings of words, so the only real effect such duplication has is to reduce the number of words you have to learn.
Language is never entirely based on logic. You have the same things in other languages too. Thumbing down because of comic sans and then complaing their lack of intelligence? Funny that.
was this written by an autist?
Let's face it, comic sans is a stupid font.
i hate this poem so much. most of the stuff either doesn't make sense or is just plain wrong.
HAMBURGers are called such because they come from HAMBURG, Germany. And even if computers had invented a language, we would still be on the top because WE INVENTED COMPUTERS. http://xkcd.com/894/
You people are assholes. It's not a critical essay delving into the oddities of the English language. It's a fucking poem. Get over it.
Boxing rings are boxed shaped rings.
From the page: There is no egg in the eggplant.

Sorry English is hard for you. Or, maybe you know the language, but then why are you complaining about it?
Wow, for once, I agree with Jesus. ----V
