English might look like an easy language to learn until you realise what a difference a single comma can make. Take this sentence for example: “I like cooking, my family, and my pets.” Now take the commas out.
Why is it so complicated? Because English beats up other languages in dark alleys, then rifles through their pockets for loose grammar and spare vocabulary.
Without further ado, here are some hilarious instances where the English language can literally turn your brain into mush.
#13: No bull
#12: Frivolous waste of vowels
#11: So many implications…
#10: Good luck with spelling
#9: Ah, figurative speech
#8: Tongue twister
#7: Why does it have to stand out?
#6: Getting out of a hot situation with stress
#5: ‘Goodbye’ was ye old chat speak
#4: Mind: blown
#3: Never say ‘I’
And finally…#1 (the culmination of why English is so… weird)
