Ever Wonder:

Why the sun lightens our hair, but
darkens our skin?

Why women can't put on mascara with their
mouth 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 it that to stop Windows 98, you
have to click on "Start"?

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?

When dog food is new and improved
tasting, who tests it?

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?

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?

:lol: Some of those are great, although others I actually found myself answering. :eek:

And, in the spirit of Merc tack-on posts, let me add a few of my own:

(drawing from your other post) Why they package hotdogs in groups of 10 and buns in groups of 8.

Why we always go to the movies and get the "Student Discount," yet always complain that general education never does anything for us.

Why "Greenland" is a frozen icicle most of the year, and "Iceland" is usually a mild 65 degrees? :rolleyes:

Why we go to the market and call it the "Grocery Store" (Ack, that's gross :eek: )

:D

WHy do you drive in a parkway and park in a driveway?

Why if it's on a ship, it's called cargo, but in a car, it's a shipment?


Why do they call it a "T.V set" when you only get one?

:confused:

I quoted some of your questions and decided to answer them:

1. Psychics arent Psychic, they're just bullsh-t

2. cause how else would they spell it?

3. Doctors practice cause they are not Masters. + not all doctors practice

4. Cause its Juice, not lemonade. and cause its real powerful against jerms and such

5. They are called Brokers cause they make you broker then you already were

6. its called rush hour cause everyone is in a rush to get home, and thanks to Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan

7. Because in order for the plain to fly it needs to be made out of light meterial, if plains were made out of that black box crap they would crash after getting 20 ft off the ground

8. Because that would be cruelty to animals, + not all cats like to eat mices

9. cause 'start' is where 'shut down' is

10. because flying isnt safe, you're taking a risk going in the air.
