Something to Think About!!

* Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?

* Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?

* Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavour, while dishwashing liquid is made with real lemons?

* Why don't we ever see this headline:
Psychic Wins Lottery ?

* Why is the man who invests all your money called a 'Broker' ?

* Why isn't there mouse flavoured cat food?

* Who tastes dog food when it has a 'new & improved' flavour?

* Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

* Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

* Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

* Why do they call the airport ' the terminal' if flying is so safe?

* If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times, does he become disoriented?

* If people from Poland are called 'Poles', why aren't people from Holland called 'Holes?'

* Why do we say something is out of whack? What is a whack, anyway?

* Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?
* If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

* Why do women wear evening gowns to nightclubs? Shouldn't they be wearing nightgowns?

* If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

* When someone asks you, 'A penny for your thoughts, 'and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny?

* When cheese gets it's picture taken, what does it say?

* Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist, but a person who drives a racing car not called a racist?

* Why are a wise man and wise guy opposites?

* Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

* If horrific means to make horrible, does terrific mean to make terrible?

* Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

* 'I am' is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence? Think about it.

* If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked and dry cleaners depressed?

* Do Roman paramedics refer to IV's as '4's' ?

* Why is it that if someone tells you that there are 1 billion stars in the universe you will believe them, but if they tell you a wall has wet paint you will have to touch it to be sure?

Good questions.  Personally I think 11 should be pronounced eleventeen.  ;D
