Questions that haunt me...

One of my really cool friends sent me this a while back. Can't remember who or exactly when because I deleted the email when I dropped it in here as a draft post. I ran across it again while trying to come up with something clever and amusing to write on my own. Ain't happenin! Hasn't happened for two blasted weeks! Sooo... Rather than not post anything I figured I'd pass on this old chestnut just in case you never thought about this stuff. Have a great day and I promise that as soon as my brain starts functioning again I will post something original.

Can you cry under water?

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Why do you have to "put your two cents in".. but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to?

Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up like every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why are you in a movie, but you're on TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.

Why is "bra" singular and "panties" plural?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane ?

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Why do they call it an asteroid when it's outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it's in your butt?


  1. HA HA HA those were pretty funny!

  2. I've seen that somewhere before, though I can't rememeber where.

  3. I've been pretty quiet in the blog world as well. I think it's a combination of being busy and being tired. I really hope I can get my creative juices flowing soon.

  4. Two cents/penny? The rest is taxes!!!

    Toaster? I think there is a setting higher than the one used for hubby's toast, but it's never been used! Hands up all those who like the stench of severely burnt toast filling the house...

  5. Bra singular, panties plural. Because the word "Pant" is singular for pant legs. Thus we wear "pants". So we wear panties. Don't know why we wear "shorts". Margie

  6. Loved it. Some of those were new to me and have me pondering........

  7. LOL that is funny.

    Today is Bug's 8th Gotcha Day. Her story and photos year by year on are on my blog :-)

  8. Brandy - I still shake my head and wonder WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT? at the Gilligan's Island thing.. DUH!! LOL!
    Mommee - They have been around a while, but good giggles never get too old. ;o)
    Brandi - I have no idea how you manage to get out of bed in the morning as busy as you stay! LOL! I'm just glad you are still hanging around old lazy me! ;o) xoxoxo
    Dragonstar - ROFL!! Isn't it funny how some people's tastebuds get so wacky! LOL! Perhaps you should put the toaster in that cool new bike shed Steven built! LOL!
    Margie - Leave it to you to go gettin all knowy on us. ;o) (Ok, so I'm jealous. I use to be the queen of trivial pursuit! LOL!)
    BratsMom - Isn't it amazing how somethings that are so obvious never really occur to us until somebody else writes it down!?!? LOL
    AZ - DAGNABBIT ALL! I missed getting over there on THE day! I'm coming right now!

  9. hmmm. I don't have enough brain power for some of these!

  10. Okay here are some of my thoughts (these were real questions right?)

    You can cry underwater, but only for a little bit, because when you start snorting and sobbing you will drown.

    I remember asking my teacher in grade school "what is the difference between assasination and murder?" I was either precocious or obnoxous, you decide.

    Here is another question about pizza. What is St. Louis style pizza cut into squares instead of wedges?

    And the wheels on luggage were invented when women began to fly and decided to improve the entire process. They have also improved space travel since they have been involved.

    I had better stop.

  11. Damama, stop asking questions, please!
    And stop singing this song too, the Alphabet one, it's the only one I know, don't want to go to bed with this tune in my head.; )

  12. Oh my gosh. thank you soooo much for sharing this it was so wonderful and made me laugh. My kids are like hey mom what's so funny. Love it.
