Crazy English Memes
Let’s face it: English is quirky. It’s one of the things I love about it. I find the language I speak to be fascinating in its flexibility and unpredictability. I like how English defies conformity to simple rules. I feel sorry for folks trying to learn it, sure, but I find it endlessly amusing.
