Hi folks,

 

I'm reading a book called Crazy English by Richard Lederer. It's really funny and I'd like to share some quotes with you guys.

 

Put on your shoes and socks – This is an exceedingly difficult maneuver. Most of us put on our socks first, then our shoes.
The bus goes back and forth between the terminal and the airport – You have to go forth before you can go back.
Watch your head – Trying to watch your head is like trying to bite your teeth.
They do things behind my back. You want they should do things in front of your back?

 

Pretty ugly.
awful good
inside out
growing small
same difference
half naked
death benefit

 

We drive in parkway but park on the driveway, there’s no ham in hamburger or bread in sweetbreads, and blueberries are blue but cranberries
are not cran.


Sid.
