Why the English Language is Hard to Learn

9 Aug

Yesterday I had my biggest day for views on my blog- 60! (I know that may seem pathetic to some- but it’s progress for me!) Woohoo! Keep ’em coming!

And remember to give me your Top 3 Picks on your favorite color scheme for my soon-to-be blog design!

In other news, I came across this at work on a company board this morning:

Reasons why the English Language is hard to Learn

The bandage was wound around the wound.

The farm was used to produce produce.

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

He could lead if he would get the lead out.

The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

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

A bass was painted on the head of a bass drum.

When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

I did not object to the object.

They were too close to the door to close it.

The buck does funny things when the does are present.

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

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

The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

After a number of injections my jaw got number.

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

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