Imponderables

Why do women hate beauty pageants, but then enter their dog in a dog show, to see which dog is the best looking?

If you butter a piece of toast and drop it, it lands butter side down. If you drop a cat it always lands on it's feet.What would happen if you buttered the back of a cat and dropped that?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread to begin with.

Where does the tread that wears off tires go?

If a stars light takes millions of years to reach us, how do we know it didn't already blow up, a million years ago and we just don't know it yet?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food? Or given that cats like to lick their butts, why don't they make butt-flavored cat food?

If nothing sticks to Teflon, how do they get Teflon to stick to the pan?

If I don't water my plants and they die... do they go to heaven?

Wool shrinks, doesn't it? So why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Men's and women's shirts button on opposite sides. And dry-cleaners charge more for women's shirts, because their equipment is made to do men's shirts. So why doesn't someone invent a machine that does women's shirts, cheaper?

Why is there an expiration date on sour cream? Does it go sour-er?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, but dish washing detergent is made with real lemons?

If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?

How do they keep all the raisins in a box of cereal from falling to the bottom?

If we're here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?

If they squeeze olives to get olive oil, and corn to get corn oil, how do they get baby oil?

Do dogs ever get hoarse from barking all night? Have you ever heard a dog with laryngitis?

If shampoo comes in so many colours, why is the lather on your hair always white?
Where does the color go?

If Snickers satisfy, why do they make King Size Snickers? Do you then say "I'm more than satisfied" ?

Hey, good questions! But, the answers seem to elude me right now! Hmm, I might be one of those 'blissful' ones! LOL

I love these - I have oodles of them. Why isn't phonetically spelled phonetically? (fOnetickly?)
If it travels on a boat, it's cargo but if it travels by truck it's a shipment. Oh the list is endless ... enjoy!

God Katie I wake up and come check on you even before coffee and get questions of and on life yikes.
Mum
Because both are men things started out with have you got the better fur than my g/f or dog insert which applies.

Can't help you with butter question (yes I know I'm slack)..

With croutons it's not the stale bread though I really don't think you would like to eat bread with fur but the fact they do cook them in oil so when they sell them they have to be in airtight packages and like potato crisps they go soft.

Tires (tyres)ask the local bloke on the corner.

On mouse flavoured cat food when you find out let me know.

Wool question is don't wash wool in hot or warm water and it wont shrink last I looked rain was cold water.

helping others the others are there to be helped.

hope that helps.

I'm one of those idiosyncratic ones that wants to answer all.
Alas, I'll stick to the one.

Q: Do dogs ever get hoarse from barking all night? Have you ever heard a dog with laryngitis?

A: Yes. Yes.
We had two Beagles when I was growing up and we went out of town for the weekend- neighbor took care of both. The younger (male) of the two bayed ALL weekend we were told. When we came home, the poor dog WAS hoarse... sounded like nothing I've ever heard... pathetic.

I'll try again when I can type correctly...

I will attempt to address just one as well. The star thing.....

I have wondered a lot about this. Will the star just go out all at once and cease to be there? Will we see a poof? What if several go together? I have no answers. I hope that's helpful. The end.

Sue, I think we're both blissful. ;-)
You know, I drive my old guy nuts asking questions... and I find that if I just keep asking questions, he goes home. It took me many, many years to learn this, but I now use it to my benefit. LOL!

Rubies, I love 'em too!
If something can move at the speed of light, what's the speed of dark?
By the end of my work week, I think I'm movin' at it, anyway. ;-)

Irene, Maybe if you went to bed at a decent hour? Hmmm? *wink*
You KNOW your poor brain doesn't function before the 2nd cup of coffee!
(besides, what if it's a warm rain??)

Bz, Well that's one down... and many, many more to go! I never knew that dogs could go hoarse... which just goes to show that the Old Guy is wrong when he says I think I know everything! ;-)

Robynn, Would it be like God just switched a light switch? One minute it's there, and the next it's gone? And if several go at once, would it get too dark to see?

Suppose the hokey-pokey IS what its all about?

If it's a near miss, did you hit it?
Why if a person who plays a piano is called a pianist, isn't a race car driver called a racist?
Why are there self help groups?
Why is a bra singular and panties plural?
We can go on forever but my personal favourite ... Why is it called a one night stand when I spend it lying down?
*blush*

Good things to ponder!

I used to think that I was
indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Ooooh - you've given me a good idea for another post. I'll have to try to see how many of these I can come up with!

hahaha your killin me!!

SassyDog said...

Oh I am so sorry, I didn't realize what pain you were in. I am so behind!! Maybe Meagan will take some pics! I have laughed at your expense sorry to say! But these last few posts were some funny stuff..I forgot to mention I bought a giant bubble wand with bubbles at Walmart and have been blowing bubbles in the backyard. The dogs chased them all over, it was sooo funny!
