Ponder This::

*Why is an alarm clock going “off” when it actually turns on?

*Why is Grape Nuts cereal called that, when it contains neither grapes, nor nuts?

*If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?

*Why is it called a “drive through” if you have to stop?

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

*Why is an electrical outlet called an outlet when you plug things into it? Shouldn’t it be called an inlet

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

*Why do they call it “getting your dog fixed” if afterwards it doesn’t work anymore?

*Where in the nursery rhyme does it say humpty dumpty is an egg?

*Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections?

*Why does Donald Duck wear a towel when he comes out of the shower, when he doesn’t usually wear any pants?

*If an orange is orange, why isn’t a lime called a green or a lemon called a yellow?

*If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why’s it still #2?

*Why is a professional who invests your money called a “broker”?

*Why is "phonics" not spelled the way it sounds?

*Why is there an expiration date on sour cream?

*How come there aren't B batteries?

*Why is the word for "a fear of long words," hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, so long?

*How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?
Have a great day!
