Another Twenty Questions For Tuesday

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”


You may discover the true meaning of life in today’s post (naw, okay, you probably won’t). Nevertheless here is a selection of questions that needed asking but that no one ever asks – until now, that is.




Why do people say ‘the sky is the limit’ when there are footprints on the moon?


If a lawyer says to the judge “I’m Lying”, is he telling the truth?


Why do we call it ‘after dark’ when it’s really ‘after light’?


Why isn’t the number 11 pronounced ‘onety-one’?


What if the Hokey Pokey REALLY IS what it’s all about?


Why is there only 12 hours on a clock?


If you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shoplifting?


How long is a piece of string?


Can animals commit suicide?


Why does the Easter bunny carry eggs? Rabbits don’t lay eggs!


Did London Bridge ever fall down?


Is it possible to be allergic to water?


Why do super-heroes wear their underwear on the outside of their clothes?


Why are women and men’s shoe sizes different?


What was the best thing BEFORE sliced bread?


How do you make seven even?


Why do they call it a ‘Television Set’ when there’s only one?


How fast do you need to cook for it to be considered ‘Fast Food’?


Where does the ‘o’ come from when we abbreviate the word ‘number’?


Why do they imply the ‘birds and the bees’ get up to something together?

  1. Maybe YOU only have 12 hours on your clocks. Mine all have 24. 😉
    As to the lawyer, don’t you know there’s a surefire way to tell a lawyer isn’t telling the truth? See if his lips are moving. 😀
    From the old folks’ file, televisions are sets because they used to have many tubes besides the picture tube in their circuitry. From the REALLY old folks’ file, I believe the “o” in te abbreviation of “number” derives from it’s Latin root word. (I think – I never took Latin. I could ask my BIL if you want, he speaks Latin fluently. And ancient Greek, ancient Hebrew, and about a dozen others. Geeks of a feather marry each other! 😀 ) And from the really BORED folks’ file, I believe London Bridge DID fall down, right before they moved it to the US Southwest (Lake Havasu, I think?).
    You’re on your own about the hokey pokey. I swore off dancing after being photographed dancing the Macarena in a World War 2 German uniform! 😯

      Great series 24.
      That could describe the similarity between lawyers and politicians.
      There are still many tubes on tv, the last time I watched it anyhow.
      I did do Latin for a while at skule, forgotten most of it of course, but I think number is numerus, still no ‘o’.
      Re London Bridge, it may well have.
      And re the Macarena – Gesundheit
