Ever Wonder...?


EVER WONDER...








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

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

Why you never see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?

Why "abbreviated" is such a long word?

Why doctors call what they do "practice"?

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

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

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

Why there isn't mouse-flavored cat food?

Why Noah didn't swat those two mosquitoes?

Why 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?

------------------

ONLY IN AMERICA :

Only in America ...do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front!

Only in America ...do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a diet coke!

Only in America ...do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters!

Only in America ...do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage!

Only in America ...do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight

Only in America ...do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'!

Only in America ...do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering!

Now that you'vesmiled at least once, it's your turn to spread the stupidity and send this to someone you want to bring a smile to,

(maybe even a chuckle)...in other words, send it to everyone. We all need to smile every once in a while.
