Adobe Forums - The English Language

Dag Norum over at the Adobe Premiere Pro User forum recites an interesting little poem on the intricacies of the Mother Tongue. Try speaking it out loud and see how well you do.

Dearest creature in creation
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I: Oh hear my prayer.
