Things That Make You Go Hmmm ... #2


Well things have been entirely too serious lately, so I decided to break up the mindless tedium of my everyday existence by throwing out a few questions for your consideration. I certainly don't have an answer for you (or I wouldn't have asked now would I?), but would appreciate any that those of you out there might have.

  • Before they invented the drawing board, what did people go back to?
  • Why do they call it the Department of the Interior when everything they regulate is outside?
  • If one synchronized swimmer drowns, do the rest have to?
  • What would be the ecologically friendly thing to do if you see an endangered animal species eating an endangered plant species?
  • Would helping someone find the self-help section in a bookstore defeat the purpose of having it?
  • If a quitter never wins and a winner never quits, then how can you quit when you’re ahead?
  • How would anyone know if bagpipes are out of tune?
  • If man evolved from apes, why do we still have apes?
  • How did a fool and his money get together in the first place?
  • If you’re not supposed to drink and drive, why do bars have parking lots?
As you ponder these things, please remember that the secret to a happy life is a healthy sense of the ridiculous...

et me think about that and I'll get back to you.

Oh, btw, why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

What happened to my "L" up there on the very first line.

Oh, forget it, I guess I'm going to "L" in a handbasket.

Roland,

You anticipate future entries into the realm of "hmmm". Now don't go getting too far ahead of the class, or you'll just get bored waiting for us.

Well, if there was a things that make you go Hmmmm#2 that does demonstrate a pattern of hope that a Things that make you go Hmmmm#3 would be possible.

hmmmm?

Lisa,

There is little doubt that you are correct, as I still have many questions.

Lisa Renee said...

I do too.
