Bianca Ghoti was a joke make by Bernhard Shaw about the English logic of spelling to show the wide gap between spelling and pronunciation. Apart from what you have written I have a text at home which shows this craziness. If I find it I'll post it. The craziest thing about English is: [o] in women in pronounced [i]. Have you ever seen a language in the world in which [o] is pronounced [i]. There is also a joke about the reason why the English write gh for f. The people in England who were in charge of printing were Dutch and they were paid by letters. The Dutch of course wanted to earn more money so the used gh instead of f. Don't believe it.
