Belated thanks for all your interesting comments on my irregular verbs post. We teacher bloggers love to read your reactions - hopefully we learn and improve, too. You came up with some very clever angles, including the number of vowels or syllables (Jia, Soroush), verbs of action (Paulraj), the topic (Maione). Well done to Tanuja for the correct answer and to all of you for thinking about the question.
And I'm really please that so many of you enjoyed the penguin joke. Thank you to Boska and Paulraj for your own gags.
Machado_Assis - there isn't really a connection between the verbs and the penguins, though the policeman was investigating 'irregularities'.
That's what we call in English a terrible pun!
angles - perspectives, approaches
gag - quick joke
pun - play on words
