Things That Make You Wonder …
Thoughts on Christmas, Holidays and Society
January 9, 2010
Only during my holiday cleaning do I have time to philosophize!!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
Spread the Stupidity
Only in America … 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.
Only in America … do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.
Only in America …do banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
Only in America … do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
Only in America … do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.
Only in America … do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.
Only in America......can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.
Only in America......are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink.
Only in America......do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.
Only in America.....do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.
Only in America......can a homeless combat veteran live in a cardboard box and a draft dodger live in the White House. (Does Bill Clinton ring a bell?)
Ever Wonder ……
Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
Why can't women put on mascara with their mouths closed?
Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?
Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?
Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor,
and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?
Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes?
Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!
Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
I like this one:
If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?
If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?
