Another week flew by, and I’m wholly unprepared for a normal Random Tuesday, so I’m gonna throw out some random thought provoking questions to entertain you…you know, randomly. 

Why do banks leave both doors open

and then chain the pens to the counters?


Why do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten

and buns in packages of eight?


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 flavor,

and dish washing 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?

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 ‘con’ is the opposite of ‘pro’,

is Congress the opposite of progress?

If flying is so safe,

why do they call the airport

the terminal?


That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not. And that means even if you don’t have a specific Random Tuesday Thoughts Rebel post posted, you can still link up, I’m not picky. You don’t even have to add the badge, just link up so I can come harass you on your blog. I promise to play nice.

  1. These are funny! And true! And why do we park in a driveway and drive on a parkway? And if the plural of goose is geese, then why isn’t the plural of moose meese?

  2. Seriously – try the mascara one – I can’t do it!!! LOL
    The black box one actually made me pause and think for a moment, because… um… yeah?!

    Love these questions. I got one!!
    If a turtle loses his shell; is he naked… or homeless?
