Why, why, why?

I’m sure we all have a question or two that we would like answered, most of them starting with “why…” . Well, here are some pretty funny questions, from the Advertiser Democrat of Oxford County, Maine. Enjoy!

  • Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a diet coke?
  • Why do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters?
  • Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage?
  • Why do we buy hot dogs in packages of 10 and buns in packages of 8?
  • Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken your skin?
  • Why can’t women put mascara on 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 dish-washing 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 don’t sheep shrink when it rains?

  1. I totally see the mascara thing happening all the time. I make it point to keep my mouth shut when I apply anything to my eyes because I think it looks silly!

    Have you ever watched someone put in or take out their contacts? Same thing. They have to open their mouths, sometimes very wide, to get them in or out of their eyes! Is there some connection we don’t see????

  2. Some of those were very funny! I agree with the mascara thing, why does your mouth have to be open to apply it? One never knows. In fact (after just realizing this) my mouth is open slightly when I put in my contacts. Strange.

  3. Cool site! I agree with the mascara thing too, like when there is a comercial i think, “shut ur mouth!” 😆

  4. I really enjoyed this! It served me a couple of laughs!! haha Anyway I agree with the mascara thing =0 [open mouth] lol, I think that congress and progress thing is totally right. haha =]
