Why, Why, Why ...

I received this via email today, and although we have probably all seen it before, thought it was too good not to share. So, here goes ....

Why, Why, Why ....

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting weak?

Why do banks charge a fee on "insufficient funds" when they know there is not enough?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what colour bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's all right?" Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, "That hurt, you stupid idiot?"

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

And my FAVOURITE......

The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

Hey these are all the why questions we don't ask...but should be asked and are like the ones my son asks I just say.."it just is..."

Great one.

Aunt Jo said...

These are all episode ideas of Seinfeld or my life.

THanks for a good evening chuckle!

Have a great tomorrow....

Connie and Rob said...

That is really cute. Thanks for sharing.


Meow said...

Kylee, I guess the answer to all of them could be "just because" !!

AJ, they could be episodes of Seinfeld (what a great show, by the way !!)

Connie, glad you enjoyed them.

Have a great day everyone, Meow

Meow said...

Hi fb, thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great day, Meow

Mamacita said...

Good questions! Here's my one-size-fits-all answer: I don't know.

And of COURSE it's not you. Silly. You're nice.

mysterious in blue said...

that's too funny and so true! i'm guilty of some of those :).

Meow said...

Thanks Mamacita, I was hoping it wasn't me. They're good questions, aren't they !!

MIB, nice to see you again. Questions without answers ... go figure !!

Take care, Meow

Hasan Mubarak said...

I, amazingly, shared all those 'why's.

Does anyone have answers to these???

Viamarie said...

Nice post. Enjoy your weekend!

DayByDay4-2Day said...

This reminds me that I was thinking of writing a book with simular things. I was calling it things that make you go Humm?

angel, jr. said...

That's more "whys" then my 3 year old nephew asks per minute.

Lisa said...

That was funny , sad to say that I do some of those things mentioned.

Clare said...

LOL I loved those. Thanks Meow, especially liked the dead bugs one as it's something I hate.

Neo said...

Meow - LOL, great list!

I'm sure you'd enjoy hearing George Carlin's material! Along the same lines.

Have a great weekend!

Peace & Hugs,

- Neo

Cathy said...

I am the person pressing harder on the remote when the batteries are dying! I swear it works...

Badoozie said...

this is too funny. my favorite is the shopping cart thing. they are really good questions, now you need to answer them. K?

Jenn said...

hmmm... interesting one... Tarzan never even has a 5:00 shadow.

Meow said...

Hasan, I certainly don't know the answers !!

Viamarie, thank you, hope you enjoy yours, too.

Daybyday, brilliant title, go for it !!

Angel, yep ... when my daughter was younger, even she couldn't ask that many questions in one day (well, maybe she could !!)

Lisa, I think we all do, particularly the remote control thing !!

Clare, me too ... wonder how they get in there !!

Neo, will have to look into George Carlin's work .. thank you.

Cathy, I reckon it works, too !!

Susie, I can't answer them ... what about you !!!

Jenn, Tarzan's face always looks as smooth as a baby's bum !!

Thanks everyone, that was fun.

Have a great weekend, take care, Meow

Meow said...
