Stuff I wonder about (Part 2):

* If you*re attacked by the Energizer Bunny, is he charged with battery?

* What if you stop to think and forget to start again?

* Why do we put suits in a garment bag, and garments in a suitcase?

*Why doesn*t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

* Who was Allen, and why did he have so many wrenches?

* Where exactly is the middle of nowhere?

* Where does your lap go when you stand up?

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The sale girl sees him and asks if she can help. He says that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later he brings a huge bag of cotton balls and a roll of string to the counter. The girl says *Sir, I thought you were looking for abox tampons for your wife.* He answered, *You see, it*s like this. Yesterday I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes. She returns some time later with a tin of tobacco and rolling papers because it is sooooo much cheaper. So I figure if I have to roll my own, so does she.*

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The sale girl sees him and asks if she can help. He says that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later he brings a huge bag of cotton balls and a roll of string to the counter. The girl says *Sir, I thought you were looking for abox tampons for your wife.* He answered, *You see, it*s like this. Yesterday I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes. She returns some time later with a tin of tobacco and rolling papers because it is sooooo much cheaper. So I figure if I have to roll my own, so does she.*

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, *Fried Chicken.* She said I wasn*t funny, but she couldn*t have been right because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth, so I did. I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do too. Especially chicken, pork, and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal*s office. I told him what happened, and he laughed too and told me not to do it again. The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite LIVE animal was. I told her it was chicken because you can make it into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal*s office. He laughed and told me not to do it again. My parents told me to be honest, but my teacher doesn*t like it when I am. I don*t understand. Today my teacher told me to tell her what famous military person I admire most. I said, *Colonel Sanders.*
Guess where I am now...

A man and wife are dining in a plush restaurant, and the husband keeps staring at a drunken lady swigging drinks at the bar. The wife asks her husband if he knows her? The husband replies: Yes, she's my ex-girlfriend. I hear she took to drinking right after we split 7 years ago, and hasn't been sober since.
The wife: Oh my! Who would think a person could go on celebrating for that long.

The California D.O.T found over 200 dead crows on the highways recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A pathologist examined the birds, and to everyone*s relief, it was not bird flu. The cause of death seemed to be from vehicular impact. However, during analysis, it was noted that various colors of paint on the claws and beaks of the crows. Testing of these paints found that 98% of the birds were killed by impact with motorbikes, while the other 2% were impacted by cars. The agency then hired an
Ornithological Behaviourist to determine why the percentage difference between motorcycles vs. cars. The conclusion was that when crows eat road-kill, they always have a lookout bird to warn of incoming danger. They discovered that while all the lookout birds could shout *Cah!* but not a single one could shout *Bike!*

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, *Fried Chicken.* She said I wasn*t funny, but she couldn*t have been right because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth, so I did. I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do too. Especially chicken, pork, and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal*s office. I told him what happened, and he laughed too and told me not to do it again. The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite LIVE animal was. I told her it was chicken because you can make it into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal*s office. He laughed and told me not to do it again. My parents told me to be honest, but my teacher doesn*t like it when I am. I don*t understand. Today my teacher told me to tell her what famous military person I admire most. I said, *Colonel Sanders.*
Guess where I am now...

A man and wife are dining in a plush restaurant, and the husband keeps staring at a drunken lady swigging drinks at the bar. The wife asks her husband if he knows her? The husband replies: Yes, she's my ex-girlfriend. I hear she took to drinking right after we split 7 years ago, and hasn't been sober since.
The wife: Oh my! Who would think a person could go on celebrating for that long.

The California D.O.T found over 200 dead crows on the highways recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A pathologist examined the birds, and to everyone*s relief, it was not bird flu. The cause of death seemed to be from vehicular impact. However, during analysis, it was noted that various colors of paint on the claws and beaks of the crows. Testing of these paints found that 98% of the birds were killed by impact with motorbikes, while the other 2% were impacted by cars. The agency then hired an
Ornithological Behaviourist to determine why the percentage difference between motorcycles vs. cars. The conclusion was that when crows eat road-kill, they always have a lookout bird to warn of incoming danger. They discovered that while all the lookout birds could shout *Cah!* but not a single one could shout *Bike!*

Stuff I wonder about (Part 1):
*If money doesn*t grow on trees, why do banks have branches?
* Why does round pizza come in a square box?
* What exactly is cured ham cured of?
*Why is someone *IN a movie,* but *ON tv?*
*When someone says they slept like a baby, does that mean that they woke up every 2 hours?
* How can you tell if you run out of invisible ink?
