I've just run across the funniest quote ever. I've no idea who said it, but I thought I'd share just the same.

"The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."

Sounds like Lynn Truss's "Eats Shoots and Leaves."

Her or Eddie Izzard :P

Heee. It could be either one, I suppose. It was not posted with a cite, so I've no idea. But it was amusing.

Hee - that was really funny! Made me think of the Eddie Izzard sketch 'Flags' for some reason.
