Those two sentences make me want to give the English language a great, big cuddle and to dance around, laughing maniacally, like Rumpelstiltskin.
Which is more then compensated for by those terrible English pun jokes like:
Two atoms are sitting at the bar. One says "I think I lost an electron". The other asks "Are sure sure?". "I am positive" says the first one.
Post edit: And what about those 'knock knock' jokes. Horrible!
