A FUNNY LANGUAGE

English is a funny language. All the other languages I know start their ABC with "ah". It sounds more or less like the "ah" in CAR or BAR or FAST (British English). But not English. The name os the letter is "ey" as in MAY or DAY or HEY.

Funny. I don't mean funny hah hah hah, but funny as in "strange", or "this beer tastes funny..."

I must go some place and figure this thing out.
