To make up for sending everyone to a literally horrible definition earlier, I offer this T-shirt: English doesn't borrow from other languages. English follows other languages down dark alleys, knocks them over and goes through their pockets for loose grammar.

Also found while Googling for that one, POLYAMORY IS WRONG! It is either multiamory or polyphilia but mixing Greek and Latin roots? WRONG!
