Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll squeeze these pink dangly things
here and drink whatever comes out?

Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken there... I'm gonna eat the next thing that
comes outta its bum."

Why do toasters always have a setting so high that could burn the toast to a horrible crisp,
which no decent human being would eat?

Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but don't point to their bum when
they ask where the bathroom is?

Why does your Obstetrician, Gynecologist leave the room when you get undressed if they are
going to look up there anyway?

Why does Goofy stand erect while
Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

Can blind people see their dreams? Do they dream??

If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil
made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Stop singing and read on . . . . . .. . .

Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take
him on a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster?
Do you ever wonder why you gave me your e-mail address in the first place?

All good stuff here Peter. I liked the photos.
I shall steal some of your quotes and not give proper credit so thanks in advance.

Jack K. said...

I have written tests before, but never any as difficult as yours. I had to fall back on an adage I just made up. "If you are not sure, the answer is YES." lol.

The photos might just be considered exciting. LOL.

Although I've seen some of these before they still made me laugh and I liked the apple one which I had not seen.

Maria said...

I have often wondered about most of those thigngs. Loved the definition of an optomist. I always feel good after visiting your site. Do you remember all these wonderful jokes so that when you are out having a beer you can entertain everyone at the bar?

Joy Des Jardins said...

Alison said...

Ah Peter, those are fabulous! I think the dogs don't like the smell of our breath!! and I can't stop singing Twinkle, Twinkle...thanks a lot!!

Sandy said...

Funny stuff as usual Peter in both this post and the previous one.
I'll have to share a couple of these with a friend as I'm sure she'll get as much of a laugh as I did.

Jeanette said...
