Nice one, Language. You nearly had me there for a second.

'Elephant' sounds very much like 'elegant'. But just you try going up to a lady and saying, 'you look very elephant in that dress'. Go on, do it now!

On the other hand, 'rhinoceros' doesn't sound very much like 'toilet impersonating duck', and I think we all know what that means.

You just can't trust Language. It'll always try and put one past you.
