Fun Friday

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea....does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? Aren't they just stale bread to begin with?

If people from Poland are called Poles, then why aren't people from Holland called Holes?

If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?

If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP?

Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen can look for them while they deliver the mail?

Is it true that you never really learn to swear until you learn to drive?

As income tax time approaches, did you ever notice: When you put the two words 'The' and 'IRS' together, it spells 'THEIRS' ?

If birds that fly over the ocean are called seagulls, why aren’t birds that fly over the bay called bagels?

If tin whistles are made out of tin, are fog horns made out of fog?

And from the man on the street:
"Now listen up, people! It’s FUN FRIDAY, and that means it’s time for YOU to come up with your own never-before-asked silly question! That's right. I want YOU to post your question RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW! Anything goes on FUN FRIDAY, so don't be disappointing me, ya hear? Good. Now get to it!"


  1. Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

    What was the best thing before sliced bread?

    What is the opposite of medium?

    Why do we say that we hate to be sick? Isn't that a given, or are there people who enjoy it?

    Why aren't there B size batteries?

    If they're all stuck together, why are they called apartments?

    Why is it that abbreviation has no abbreviation?

    Why does thesaurus have no synonyms?

  2. Thanks for the giggles! And I love the titles of your books!

  3. Oh, Laura, great questions! The Man on the Street loves you! :)

    Glad you enjoyed the blog, Anita. I'm considering making FUN FRIDAY a permanent addition to Cicero's Children. I'm sure I can find something wacky to blog about each Friday. All I have to do is read the news. :)

  4. Heh ... I can't top this one. Well done.
