I got kick out of these. As Arsenio used to say, "Things that make you go Hmmmm..."


Why?

1. Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?

2. Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?

3. Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

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

5. Why is "abbreviated" such a long word?

6. Why is a boxing ring square?

7. Why is it considered necessary to nail down the lid of a coffin?

8. Why is it that doctors call what they do "practice?"

9. Why is it that rain drops but snow falls?

10. Why is it that to stop Windows 95, you have to click on "Start"?

11. Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?

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

13. Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

14. Why is the third hand on the watch called a second hand?

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

16. Why isn't there a special name for the tops of your feet?

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

18. Why do you need a driver's license to buy liquor when you can't drink and drive?

Why do we park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?

How can fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing?

number 16 made me go cross eyed, that's a good question...

Sometimes, the things that go unsaid are the only things worth hearing.

Why do people waiting for a bus invariably walk out into the middle of the street? It won't make the bus come any sooner!!

Why do we turn down the radio when we pull up to a drive through ATM?

Why is it a dog will stick his head out the window, but hates it when you blow in his face?

Why do they put Braille dots on drive-up-ATM's? Don't believe me? Go check.
