Re: Muphry....

Don't you just love English? It's the crème de la crème of all languages, and the lingua franca of The Internet.

To steal a phrase from Mr Nicoll, "The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."
