    Why is all this happening ?

    Post by Technician on Sat 19 Nov 2011, 9:13 am

    Hi All

    In the midst of all the economic and political gloom I thought it may be a good idea to re-focus our thoughts on the more important issues in life, those of major pphilosophical importance to us all....SO:


    Why do supermarkets 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.


    Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large
    fries, and a diet coke.

    Why do banks leave vault doors open and then chain
    the pens to the counters.

    Why do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds in
    our driveways and put our useless junk in the
    garage.

    EVER WONDER ...

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

    Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth
    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 flavouring,
    and dishwashing 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 do 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 flying is so safe,why do they call the airport
    the terminal?


    Mmmmmm !!!

    Har har har....great stuff technician ! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    It is always good to have a larf when things look at their most desperate !

    While I don't think that you compiled all of those brilliantly-humorous observations I think that it is great that you went to the trouble of publishing them here.

    Being the type of smart-ass that I am known to be I might have been tempted to explain many of those observations, but this time I have just accepted them for what they are...great fun and very true in many cases !
