Few people realize that the word "humor" originated from several hystorical manuscripts found in the Moors of England that were signed "Hugh"... thought to be a singing "trouble"adour in the URLy daze of DT.

ANYWAY... If you didn’t see this first paragraph from our doublletake-media.com home page, then read this, otherwise, you might be a little confused. If you did read it, you can read it again and be more confused…

DoubleTake™ humor can be/or is our particular kind of jokes, word plays, DT Wackronym™ acronyms (first used in DT's "The Official Goldbuster Guidebook", 1986), absurdity, song Pairody™ humor and a way of looking at the world. Although the word was "coined" around 1930, we've expanded the definition a little. We envision the concept of a DoubleTake as a cross (double?) between double vision and double talk with a little double think and speak thrown in to make it fun. DoubleTakes are somewhere in-between the absurd and the possibility of truth. It's not stranger than fiction, but it'll half (sic) to do. (Truth is stranger than fiction - from Lord Byron’s Don Juan, 1823)

DoubleTake’s approach to form DoubleTakes is to use different types of word plays and mix in a few analytical thoughts. Then just for fun, "stir" like "crazy" (a Prior Wild movie) and develop meanings, within meanings, within meanings.

OH, THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
(NOTE:DT is not sure where this "poem" and the following "ENGLISH DT SPIN" came from, but will be glad to site reference if anyone knows the source.
So please CONTACT DT if you know.

Lets face it
English is a stupid language.
There is no egg in the eggplant
No ham in the hamburger
And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple.
English muffins were not invented in England
French fries were not invented in France.
We sometimes take English for granted
But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
Quicksand takes you down slowly
Boxing rings are square
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
If writers write, how come fingers don't fing.
If the plural of tooth is teeth
Shouldn't the plural of phone booth be phone beeth
If the teacher taught,
Why didn't the preacher praught.
If a vegetarian eats vegetables
What the heck does a humanitarian eat!?
Why do people recite at a play
Yet play at a recital?
Park on driveways and
Drive on parkways
How can the weather be as hot as hell on one day
And as cold as hell on another
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy
Of a language where a house can burn up as
It burns down
And in which you fill in a form
By filling it out
And a bell is only heard once it goes!
English was invented by people, not computers
And it reflects the creativity of the human race
(Which of course isn't a race at all)
That is why
When the stars are out they are visible
But when the lights are out they are invisible
And why it is that when I wind up my watch
It starts
But when I wind up this poem
It ends.

ENGLISH DT SPIN

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist, but a person who drives race car not called a racist?

Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

Why do overlook and oversee  mean opposite things? 

If horrific means to make horrible, does terrific mean to make terrible?

Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that:

electricians can be delighted
musicians denoted
cowboys deranged
models deposed
tree surgeons debarked, and
dry cleaners depressed?

Why is it that if someone tells you that there are 1 billion stars in the universe you will believe them, but if they tell you a wall has wet paint you will have to touch it to be sure?

If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times, does he  become disoriented?

If people from Poland are called "Poles", why aren't people from Holland called "Holes?"
