These are good questions from my email (ty JC)


Why? Why? Why?
By C. Farnham


Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?
Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
Why is a boxing ring square?
Why is it called lipstick if you can still move your lips?
Why is it considered necessary to nail down the lid of a coffin?
Why is it that doctors call what they do "practice"?
Why is it that rain drops but snow falls?
Why is it that to stop Windows, you have to click on "Start?"
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
Why is the word dictionary in the dictionary?
Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

Got any answers?

Um...literally?

-Glue DOES stick to the inside of the bottle, that's why you can never get 100% of it out.

-It's called lipstick because it's for your lips, in the shape of a stick.

-Nails are placed in coffins superstitiously because back in the day they feared the un-dead.

-They use artificial flavour in lemon juice because real lemon juice tastes like ass. They use real lemon juice in dishsoap because it's acidic and fights grease.

-Rain "drops" because it's fast, snow "falls" because it's slow.

That's all I got.

Isn't my email address in my blog profile?

It's all good. I'll buy a cookie tomorrow and pretend it was from you while I'm eating it.

I think everyone should buy cookies and pretend they are from me. I think I'll get more brownie points that way. Or is that cheating?
