So George Bernard Shaw once joked (apparently apocryphally) that spelling is so random in English that you could write the word "fish" as "ghoti" (taking the "f" sound from "tough," the "i" from "women," and the "sh" from words like "nation"). Discuss.

That is so clever! I feel like no one would ever get it without that explanation - it's just so random, I love it!!
