Even More Obvious Questions

There are far too many questions out there in our everyday routines that need to be asked. I’m not talking about questions that will end wars, abolish poverty, cure all diseases, or eliminate the world’s problems. I’m talking about the questions that drive us crazy due to their simplicity and the questions that absolutely no one seems to be able to answer. It seems like there’s no end to these questions as I discover new ones constantly.

  • What if there were no hypothetical questions?
  • Why is it that when you’re driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?
  • If they wanted us to eat it, then why would they name it succotash?
  • Why is it if there are only two people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers?
  • What don’t we have a constitutional amendment that declares anything said in a campaign commercial to be under oath?
  • Why does a friend or family member say “Yuck! This is awful!!” and then tell you to try some?
  • Why is it that the chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpeting/rug?
  • What was the best thing before sliced bread?
  • Why do we say something is out of whack? What’s a whack?
  • When you open a bag of cotton balls, is the top one meant to be thrown away?
  • Why don’t sheep shrink when it rains?
  • If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
