TT #88


13 things that make you ask why?

1. Why do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front?

2. Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke?

3. Why do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters?

4. Why do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering?

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

6. Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?

7. Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

8. Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

9. Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

10.Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

11.Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

12.If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

Ah, the eternal questions, that will never be answered! I suppose one cold always drink the washing up liquid. Or maybe not!

Betty said...

LOL! Funny questions! Made me laugh!

tommie said...

Adelle Laudan said...

LOL Great list. Thanks for the chuckles. Happy T13!

Janet said...

I love the taste of diet coke :-)

Karen said...

Such a great list of questions. There are just some things that there are no answers for.

Malcolm said...

Very funny list. I was telling someone about #2 not too long ago.

By the way, I like your new blog design. At least it's new to me because I haven't been over in awhile. :-)

Carmen Shirkey said...

Ha! I got this in an email last week. There are always things that make me as Why? :)

Hootin' Anni said...

I've always wondered why they don't make 'butt-flavored' cat food AND dog food myself. LOL

My 13 is posted.

Kristen said...

Great list. Life is full of irony, isn't it!

Tricia said...

I laughed all the way to the bottom. And I am chronically guilty of the diet coke one.

My expressions LIVE said...

You cracked me up...lol.

On a limb with Claudia said...

Now Lori, you know that real psychics can't get financial gain from their gifts! ;)

Barbara said...

LOL! I especially love the psychic not winning the lottery one. Hahaha!

jenn said...

These are great!
Happy tt!

kandyblossom said...

LOL...fun list.

I am guilty of the diet soda thing. For me it's a simple matter of taste preference. Can't stand the taste of a regular soda.

Happy TT!

samulli said...

LOL, good questions, some of them. Particularly the last four are really puzzling. :)

Jenn said...

lol... hey don't dis the Diet Coke, it's my lifeline. I drink it with EVERYTHING but I am not on a diet. I just love it.

Some of these are really cute.

In reference to #2, I heard a (fat) comedian give a pretty good reason for that, because if you have the diet coke you can have the cheeseburgers & large fries. (for myself it's because after so many years of diet soda, real soda tastes funny to me- too thick & syrupy. Great list though!
