Continuing from Part 1

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.   (Shilpa Garg  came out with this one)

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.

So, he tells me: “Amma, you should work hard than that Nue(her name) girl (not new girl) and get good name too”. 🙂 Bikram, wanted to tell you from long time.

    He heeh! English! Funny Language indeed.
    All these weird things sure do make it a very interesting language.

    That’s a good collection you’ve got up there.


  51. Really nice. There are actually many more. Why is it called a building, when it is already built? Why do we call it shipment when good are transported through vehicles and why is it called cargo when they are transported through ships. But my all time favorite is,

    “English is a very funny language, It is the only language where your nose runs and your feet smell” ” 🙂




  52. Incredible and amusing collection 🙂 I am sure there are hundreds and thousands more waiting to be compiled.
