Fun Photo Friday: Our Absurd Language

funny collection of illogical absurd phrases in english language

I think this fun image about our absurd language originated from Goodwill Librarian or The Language Nerds. Regardless of its origin, it pokes insightful fun at the absurd and illogical collection of words and phrases that comprise the English language. This image beautifully captures some of the funniest contradictions English has to offer.

Even if you’ve recognized, groaned and/or laughed at some of these before, you’ll probably see a new one. For me, “cargo” was the one I’d never thought about before.

Hilarious!
