TT #9

Thirteen Things to make you wonder


1. What was the best thing before sliced bread?

2. If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes?

3. Whose cruel idea was it for the word "Lisp" to have "S" in it?

4. Why do they put Braille on the drive-through bank machines?

5. If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

6. How do they get deer to cross the road only at those yellow road signs?

7. If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

8. What do you do when you see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant?

9. If a parsley farmer is sued, can they garnish his wages?

10. Why are hemorrhoids called "hemorrhoids" instead of "assteroids"?

11. If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is he homeless or naked?

12. Can vegetarians eat animal crackers?

13. If a deaf person swears, does his mother wash his hands with soap?

Funny list. When you are single working mother, you need a sense of humor.

The multiple personalities was a good question, but the turtle with a shell flashed a cartoon image in my head...a good laugh!

Thank you :-)

"Assteroid" LOLOL Great list!

Darla said...

LOL! I had a couple of similar questions that I put in my email signature a while back. One of them was "why is there an expiration date on sour cream? It's already sour"... and several people answered them seriously. Which was actually funnier than the question.

Daisy Dexter Dobbs said...

Very funny list. The "assteroids" nearly had me spewing my coffee. LOL

Megan said...

Very funny list.

And thanks Christine for the elbow comment. I didn't know that and of course I had to try it to find out. Thank goodness I am not in a public place.

Happy TT to all.

I bow to your awesomeness. These are great. Like Steven Wright asked, "If you fill a swimming pool with dry ice and let it melt, can you then swim and not get wet?"

Great post.
