Speaking of Language...

Dave Kellett, in today's Quote of the Day: "'The English language was carefully, carefully cobbled together by three blind dudes and a German dictionary.'"

Last weekend, at Stitch Witch's birthday party, one of the other guests was wearing a t-shirt that said "English does not borrow from other languages. English follows other languages into dark alleys, knocks them on the head, and then goes through their pockets for stray grammar and syntax." Or something like that.
