ghoti is FISH if you take the pronunciation as follows: the [gh] from "laugh", the [o] from "women" and the [ti] from "nation". I blame the Germans for our weird speech.

Spot on Sparks,you can see why foreigners have such trouble with the language.
One school of thought is that the mediaeval monks,who were responsible scripting the Bible and other important works, deliberately wrote English in incomprehensible ways so that only they would understand it,hence gh and the vowel sounds changing shape ,like o as i in women. My sister,who is a multi linguist (she can speak in 9 different languages), says that German and the Romantic languages much easier to understand.

would never have gotten that, even though i remeber and liked the song

this is what i thought it was but it was the wrong decade
Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up like a Union Jack
And says, I've won five pounds if I have his kind of detergent pack
I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
