You’ve had to endure a very long Postcard of our recent travels, and for the most part, you’ve all done very well. For those who have hung in with me despite my best efforts to overwhelm your attention span, here is something a little lighter, and blissfully shorter. (My thanks go out to Gelert, whose Space today inspired this post.)
Do You Ever Wonder…
Can you cry under water?
How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?
Why do you have to "put your two cents in".. but it’s only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where’s that extra penny going to?
Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?
Why does a round pizza come in a square box?
What disease did cured ham actually have?
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up like every two hours?
If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?
Why are you IN a movie, but you’re ON TV?
Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?
Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They’re going to see you naked anyway.
Why is "bra" singular and "panties" plural
Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?
If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?
If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat?
Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They’re both dogs!
If Wiley E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn’t he just buy dinner?
If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?
If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?
Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride; he sticks his head out the window?
Feel free to add any of your own ponderings to this list. Have a fun weekend. I will.
LOL….LOL…LOL…LOL…These are Great! I had to clean my computer screen from spewing hot tea out of my mouth , laughing so hard.
I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE the one about :
Here\’s my short list of fav\’s.
"Lugguage and wheels"
And best of all GOOFY!!! TOO funny!!
Havd a most relaxing weekend with your friends. SMILES.
Until next time…Keep Smiling.
BTW..email embedded within ..If you so choose to do so.
Thanks for taking the time to visit me, J.
I\’m still in San Diego but my sister has completely recovered. She was well enough for us to go on a trip to Cozumel, Mexico during the Holy Week!! I plan to go back to Tokyo sometime next month.
I enjoyed reading this, just as I always enjoy everything you write about. Have a nice weekend.
I have always loved reading rhetorical questions Jorge!
They can always get you thinking about things. Especially when you need to clear your head of complex thoughts and things. I will have to go searching through some old emails to see if I can find some more to add to your list.
Thank you for the birthday wishes and your comments this past week. I too will be having a decent looking weekend.
Wishing you all the best as ever Jorge!
i just read this from a book i was reading: (allow me to paraphrase) if vegetarians are those who eat only vegetables, then humanitarians are …
but Jorge, i loved your post cards … although, i do agree, they might be a bit longer than waht a postcard could hold. in any case, you write so well, you took me away from my living room (or office). i\’m so eager to go back to those vineyards again. they didn\’t seem so poetic when i was there. (maybe i didn\’t drink enough?) there was moment i thought your talent was wasted in medicine, but then, there, you are multi-talented 🙂 knowing you are not a native English speaker, i feel really inspried and encoraged. hope one day i can write as well as you do.
once a wise man said to me: if you didn\’t do anything wrong, then no need to apology. i definitely think there is no need for you to apologize for anything. i\’m waiting to see your next adventure.
I found this to be very amusing! There was only one I didn\’t understand and maybe you can explain it to me:
"If Wiley E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn\’t he just buy dinner?"
I don\’t know who Wiley E. Coyote is.
I can\’t think of any similar comparisons but here\’s something for your consideration:
Did you hear about the lady who backed into a meat grinder? She got a little behind in her work.
Enjoy your weekend!
I had a laugh while reading 🙂
can you be so kind and tell me what "Negroponti" stands for? 🙂
Thanks for stopping by. I enjoyed my visit here as well. Lots of things to ponder!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for the smiles today, Jorge!
This has gotten my weekend off to a wonderful start!
Peace and Love, always.
Thanks for the chuckle and thanks for your kind words on my space.
I love being a grandmother so much more than I could have imagined that I am awestruck every day!
I\’m home for just a few hours then back to the hospital, but I was able to update my space and jot a few words to my friends here.
Those were just fantastic, Jorge!!! I really enjoyed them and you certainly brightened my day!
Those were great. I read them to Hubby, too. Thanks for the laugh. I hope you\’re having a good weekend. I seem to be getting in my own way a bit…kinda grouchy, but hanging in there.
Hugs and love to a good friend.
lol at some of those ponderings
Have a wonderfull day
Loved your touring through Northern California. You hit best spots. As for these questions posed here, I have seen a few before, but most of them I haven\’t. To many of them, the answers seem simple, but some I think I have the answers for. But the "panties and bra" thing I can\’t even guess.
I assume you made it home safely, a nice ending to a road trip.
You\’re right about that survey, and I also think that it\’s biased because it\’s on a Libertarian site. I wonder if a part of their intent is not to make people curious about the Libertarian party and whether the test isn\’t biased in that way as well. It was fun and opened a lot of dialog, but the questions were far too simplistic. Do you suppose perhaps they are also doing a kind of poll to gauge public opinion on various issues before deciding which they will put at the forefront in the next election?
Funny, funny, funny indeed! What a nice way to end my day. Thanks Jorge.
Likewise regarding the comment you left at your last visit. I completely enjoy your humor, thoughts and the experiences you share. You are one special human, dear.
Enjoy the week ahead…
p.s. It is possible to cry under water, but you need to come up for air when the heaving starts!
Ha, yes! the more you look into these, the deepest mysteries of life, the more amazing it all seems! I like the one about the building and the binoculars, tis so true.
What fun! This one\’s long been a favourite:
Did Adam and Eve have belly buttons?
ROFL, thanks for that it was well neeeded… see ya around soon I hope
These are GREAT questions! Thanks for this list – I really love it!
About the assassignation topic abouve; that\’s actually quite a complex definition.
To explain it in as few words as possible…
The "assassignation" term usually is defined by having a political, social, military, or other type of leader taken out- and the person that does the taking out could almost be considered an employee of sorts.
JFK, MLK, etc… both considered as assassignations.
BTW, anyone ever seen the JFK movie? Any thought on the movie, ideas, plots, etc…
