Not an original thought but never mind. I have adapted it.
A bride is in bed with her bloke and she grasps his excitement and asks, 'What is this thing called love?'
Or did she say, 'What it this thing called, love?', which has an entirely different meaning and even so can still have two meanings.
Try explaining that to anyone who is trying to learn English. I am often queried at work by workmates who have English as a second language, and quite regularly all I can say is, that is how it is.
