Things That Make You Go Hmmm #5

Being that it's Saturday, that I am far away in foreign lands, that I am suffering from oxygen deprivation from seven days at 6600 feet, and that as a consequence I am drawing a complete blank while trying to come up with something really creative, funny, and interesting (for a change); we are once again going to turn to those annoying questions that come up from time to time. I sure as heck don't have any answers for them, but maybe someone out there might.
  • How important does someone have to be before they are assasinated rather than simply murdered?
  • Why do you have to put "your two cents in", but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"?
  • What disease did a cured ham used to have?
  • Why is it that when people sleep well they say they "sleep like babies", when babies wake up every two hours?
  • How is it that we could have figured out how to put a man on the moon before we figured out it was a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
  • If the Professor on Gilligan's Island could make a radio out of a coconut, why couldn't he fix a hole in a boat?
  • Can a hearse with a body in the back drive in the carpool lane?
  • If a deaf person goes to court, is it still a hearing?
  • If the #2 pencil is so popular, why is it still #2?
  • Why does Goofy stand on two feet and Pluto on four, they're both dogs?
I am traveling today, and expect to be home, and back at my normal nonsense next week...

Tim,

By all means, get yourself some air and BREATHE!

:-)

HT,

I am gratefully back closer to sea level, but the additional oxygen is not seeming to make any improvement in my feelings of being light headed. Perhaps the residual affect is caused by being re-subjected to non-stop political commercials.

I'd like to be important enough to be assissinated someday. But not actually assissinated.

Ben,

Be careful, lest you become sentenced to being "bitten to death by ducks", a cruel form of murder performed by tying someone to a chair and making them watch political commercials.
