    That's what I was thinking. Most of that is pretty stupid.

    Indeed. A lot of it is self explanatory when you have a basic idea of how language works. Or even when you take a couple of minutes to look into the etymology of those words.

    And the other annoying thing is the fact that whoever created that poster ignorantly assumes that English specifically is a language that creates words in this way.

    It might be called humor on Facebook. That's not what I'd call it.

    I was going to post "meh" but decided against it. Now I feel like I missed out on the disapproval train.

    And I don't think hot dogs are made from dog. Mustard doesn't have any tar in it. And a lighthouse is really heavy!
