One-Liner Wednesday — English Makes No Sense

Doug Larson was a columnist and editor for the Door County Advocate from 1953 to 1964 and wrote a daily column, “Doug’s Dugout,” for the Green Bay Press-Gazette from 1964 to 1988.

He was known for his insightful, folksy quotes, like the one above, which resonates with me because English often doesn’t make any sense. If it wasn’t my native language, I’m sure I’d never be able to master it.

Another quote of his that I like is “To err is human; to admit it, superhuman.” Clearly, our president is not superhuman. I’m not even sure he’s even human.

Or how about this one? “A pun is the lowest form of humor, unless you thought of it yourself.”

And then there’s “Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.”

But I digress. If you’re interested in reading more of Don Larson’s witty quotes, they can be found here.
