The English Language

No wonder folks have trouble learning English. I have trouble hearing it properly, and it is no wonder!

The other day on the radio, there was an advertisement for snack crackers and the mother in the ad was telling the kids that they could do all these crazy things with the left-over birthday cake they had in the back seat of the car.

One of the things she said was, "wipe it on your shirt". I thought she said, "why put on your shirt".

Say it out loud. I think it sounds the same.

We have been laughing about it ever since.
