Things to make you go hmmm.


Various thoughts have been attributed to many comedians and authors. But a did a random google search for some odd thoughts. Like:

Why to we drive on Parkways and park on Driveways?
Why do they put braille on drive up cash machines?
Do man-eating sharks eat women too?
Why do irons have a setting for permanent press?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Why do we call something sent by car a shipment and something sent by ship a cargo?
Why do we sing “Take me out to the ball game,” when we are already there?
Why is it that doctors call what they do “practice”?
Why was Evelyn Wood in such a hurry?
If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors?

Now why just cut and paste these from various web sites? Well, just the way I was thinking today. It started when someone brought of the Parkways/driveways on the radio this morning. I remember reading/hearing a lot of these. I found a lot more, but most didn’t seem funny today. These were the best of the lot in my opinion.

Look here for others.
Dumb Questions
And a Song?
More Hmmm
More serious Hmms

And of course there are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those that don’t.

  1. Why is it that doctors call what they do “practice”?

    Because doctors can be wrong! See my next post…

  2. Yes, I have seen a bunch of these imponderables on a forum I visit. Some of them really do make you laugh, and wonder. How about:

    “I am” is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that “I do” is the longest sentence?

    If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP?

    Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?

  3. Yes, man-eating sharks eat women too, I felt it!

    Thanks so much for your support and comments on my blog John. I really really appreciate that, especially in times where I felt so left alone.
