Would you like to see the English language being abused while learning why most fire trucks are red ?

They are red because they have eight wheels and four people on them, and four plus eight is twelve, there are twelve inches in a foot, and one foot is a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was also a ship, and the ship sailed the seas, and in the seas are fish, and the fish have fins, and the Finns fought the Russians, and the Russians are red, and fire trucks are always Russian around.

[@16806,cherokeepatti] yeah and I was forced to play with other children when i was young...otherwise I wouldn't have done it. I liked to keep my hands busy doing chores and hobbies and stuff.

[@412752,PoetryNEmotion] ☺ Just don't ask me why grass is green and the sky is blue. That would require a whole book.

Inevitably logical.
Wraithorn · 51-55, M
[@4152,Byron8by7] Of course it is. ☺
I forgot to add that the above is all according to the the Monty Pythonesque application of the principles of logic and etymology
