Is English a stupid language 1

There is no egg in the eggplant
No ham in the hamburger
And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple.
French fries were not invented in France.

But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
Quicksand takes you down slowly
Boxing rings are square
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

If a vegetarian eats vegetables
What the heck does a humanitarian eat ! ?

Park on driveways and Drive on parkways

And a bell is only heard once it goes!

English was invented by people, not computers
And it reflects the creativity of the human race
(Which of course isn't a race at all)
That is why
When the stars are out they are visible
But when the lights are out they become invisible
And why it is that when I wind up my watch It starts
But when I wind up this poem It ends....................................
