I Blame Somebody Greek

A needless silent "h." The only vowel is a "y." And the last syllable inexplicably consists of only the letter "m." For the love of God, who invented the word "rhythm"? And why does it still always look misspelled, even to a speaker of 100-percent fluent speaker of English? And what would have been wrong with "rithum"?
