Thanks for all the ghoti

So you know the vertebrates that live in the water, with fins and gills and scales and stuff? I always have trouble remembering how to spell that word. 

If you go back to your basic phonics, though, it's easy: ghoti.
"Gh" makes the f sound, as in enough
"O" makes the i sound, as in women.
"Ti" makes the sh sound, as in nation.

You could probably also spell it phech though. Or fish.
By the way, the Klingon word for fish? Ghoti.

Uh phllauer

Ugh zkowerl

Ahdooribull!

Man, English is phuccong hard to spell.

(Note: I didn't invent ghoti, though no one seems sure who did).
