English language = :-(

Why does the english language get a sad face?

Well, mostly 'cause someone who likes to laugh at me, almost as much as I like to laugh at myself, sent me this today:

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.

2) The farm was used to produce produce.

3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.

4) We must polish the Polish furniture.

5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.

6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.

8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.

20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

FYI, they obviously forgot about bow/bow, and a few others, but it's still fun :)


  1. I had never heard "intimate" used in the first way before seeing this.

  2. and that's one reason the English language is so difficult to learn. A friend of mine whose first language is English has the most trouble with you're and your. And as we all notice in newspapers, magazines and signs, no one seems to know how to use apostrophes....

    1. Well, I'm guilty myself about apostrophes, and commas... but for some reason I've never (or very rarely) ever mixed up you're/yours and things like that..

      ...a few days ago I saw someone had written on their own filthy back car window "If you can read this your to close!"

      ...2 mistake in one sentence... what is this world coming to? ;p

  3. This is why English tongue-twisters are so much fun :D Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier this week, Ms. Monkey!

    1. I always wonder what tongue twisters sound like in other languages...

      thanks for stopping by yourself :D


Type me out a line of Shakespeare or a line of nonsense. Dumb-blonde-jokes & Irish jokes will make me laugh myself silly :)
