And Again, I Ask Why?!?!

Yep, I am always questioning things.  Simple things that we take for granted and say all the time, are one example.  Like, why do we say up north, down south, out west, and back east?  I hear that no matter where in the U.S. I am.  OK, here is a list of things that may cause you to ask why, too:

Why is a boxing ring square?

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

Why don't you ever see the headline Psychic Wins Lottery?

Is French kissing in France just called kissing

Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

Why is it called Alcoholics Anonymous when the first thing you do is stand up and say, 'My name is Dizzy, and I am an alcoholic'?

Why do they call it a pair of pants, but only 1 bra?

I like to take things literal, so I like this one. - Are you breaking the law if you drive past those road signs that say "Do Not Pass"?

And this one made me laugh - Do you realize how many holes there could be if people would just take the time to take the dirt out of them?

How do you get off a nonstop flight?

If a mirror reverses right and left, why doesn't it reverse up and down?

If the funeral procession is at night, do folks drive with their lights off?

Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?

Why are you expected to slow down in a speed zone?

Why do fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing?

Why do you need an appointment to see a psychic?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why doesn't the fattest man in the world become a hockey goalie?

OK, that is enough for today.  Hope you found some of them funny.  We are under severe storm warnings and a tornado watch here today, but I want you all to have a great day, you hear?


  1. I found all of them funny and am still cackling like an old hen! Thanks for the belly-laugh this morning.

    1. I guess our sense of humor are about the same. I found them funny, so that is why I shared them.

  2. Dizzy, in Australia a bra IS called a pair of bras, like a pair of pants ... Liked them all, anyway.

  3. HAHA! Good ones...I like the goalie one...all things that make you go hmmmmmm. Hope the weather is ok! We got a short snow flurry then back to regularly scheduled spring.

  4. We lucked out on the weather. Got some gusty winds and some rain, but no hail and no tornadoes. To the East and to the North didn't fair as well.

  5. Those were all great. Thanks for the laughs.

    1. Glad you got some laughs. I sure did when I was putting this posting together.

  6. Made me laugh.... and wonder some as well. I'm trying to learn to speak Spanish and think about how hard it is for someone who is learning English to understand things just like these....

    1. I would think that English would be on the list of hardest languages to learn.
