Writer's Block

Do you ever experience writer's block? That is what I'm experiencing today and is the reason I'm posting "Why, Why, Why". I've seen this before, however when I read it the other day it still brought me a smile. I know you can identify with at least one of these.

Why, Why, Why

do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough money?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, 'It's all right?' Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, 'That hurt, you stupid idiot?'

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

And my FAVORITE.....
The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

Man, this was a neat list!! I never thought of some of those things..except I have thought about insufficient funds when you have no money to start with!! smile!! crazy world.
Yes, writer's block. I have had some ideas running around in my head but not what I can write right now. I am off to try though.
Hope your day is great...

Made me laugh...Thanks for the chuckle. Thanks for not laughing at how much we've changed in 35 years.

Yeah, why didn't Tarzan have a beard? I mean, we never saw him shaving in the jungle. Lol.

Good ones, Linda.

Hope you're having a great Monday.

These are great! They made me laugh out loud. I have wondered about the bank overdraft charge. It seems to be either cruel or stupid. LOL
