Now these are the questions that we all should be asking. Reading that post I found myself saying "oooh yeaaaah" several times. Thanks for reminding me that sometimes it's a good idea to take a look around at what we are all have been conditioned to do.

Great post!

Hey, I never thought about that. Why DOESN'T Tarzan have a beard!?

Linda said...

I've never understood the whole charging ridiculous amounts of money for insufficient funds. Somehow I think the banks have us over a barrel on that one!

Great questions worth contemplating on a lazy summer day!

All great observations, and I have wondered some of these same things......:)

As to alphabet soup. It is the same as with scrabble, I never got enough letters to spell anything worth spelling. haha

"Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?"

That's my favorite one! Loved this post - really gave me a well-needed laugh.

ehm...Tough questions...but Aunty Lucy has an answer on why doesn't Tarzan have a beard-- the beard was tangled between the tree when he sway from one tree to another! :)

Akelamalu said...

Glad you had a giggle it'll do you good! x

I wondered that too. I'll be over later to check out the tag.

I always get the X, Y, Z in scrabble!

Oh yes whoever did that was either very brave, or very stupid!

I do it with my pc all the time.... press c'mon press c'mon press c'mon!

Oh yes they do the rounds regularly don't they but so funny!

If you come up with any answers you'll let me know won't you?

Glad you had a laugh. :)

Aunt Lucy is a clever lady to come up with that answer! :)
