The Best Description of English, Ever!

And don't you forget it!

Pegasus Publishing offers this on a t-shirt, which is an edited quote by James 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.
I love English!
