Glawe's Outlook

Tuesday, January 29, 2008


Last week, I told you all that I had attended an illusionist show at Aurelia and woke up the morning following the performance still questioning how the "tricks" were carried out.

This week, I have come across some zany questions for you to ponder - many of which you have maybe thought of yourself and some that will keep you wondering, even into the next morning. (Sorry if I ruin your night as you are trying to come up with a "logical" answer!)

Some of these questions will just be too goofy for you to even come up with an answer.

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

* What do you call a female daddy long legs?

* Why does mineral water that has "trickled through mountains for centuries" go out of date next year?

* Why is it called a "drive through" if you have to stop?

* If you stole a pen from a bank then would it still be considered a bank robbery?

* Why is the third hand on the watch called second hand?

* Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll squeeze these dangly things here, and drink what ever comes out"?

* Why is an electrical outlet called an outlet when you plug things into it? Shouldn't it be called an inlet?

* Why is an elevator still called an elevator even when its going down?

* What's the opposite of opposite?

* Did they have antiques in the olden days?

* If Wile Coyote had enough money for all that Acme crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

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

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

* Do illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup?

* Why do the "ABC song", "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," and "Baa Baa Black Sheep" all have the same tune?

* Why do grocery stores buy so many checkout line registers if they only keep three or four open?

* If a cow laughed real hard, would milk come out her nose?

* Did Adam and Eve have navels?

* Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM?

* Why do we play in recitals and recite in plays?

* You know that little indestructible black box that is used on planes, why can't they make the whole plane out of the same substance?
