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

If quizzes are quizzical then what are tests?

Why is there an expiration date on sour cream?

Why isn't 11 pronounced "onety-one"?

You can be overwhelmed and underwhelmed, but why can't you be simply whelmed?

How come there aren't B batteries?

If you got in a cab and the driver drove backwards, would he end up owing you money?

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


Why do they call it a TV "set" when you only get one?


How do "Do not walk on the grass" signs get there?

If I melt dry ice, can I take a bath without getting wet?

Why is it that night falls but day breaks?


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

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

When your pet bird sees you reading the newspaper, does he wonder why you're just sitting there, staring at carpeting?

How do people get discombobulated? Have you ever seen someone who was combobulated?

Who closes the door when the bus driver gets off?

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

Because it comes from the word 'Phonetical', as in to listen

If quizzes are quizzical then what are tests?

Tests remain just 'tests' in this context

Why is there an expiration date on sour cream?

Cos it can go mouldy

Why isn't 11 pronounced "onety-one"?

Because 10 isn't known as 'Onety'

You can be overwhelmed and underwhelmed, but why can't you be simply whelmed?

You can be, it means to be covered by water http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/whelmed

How come there aren't B batteries?

There were but they were phased out 'the B voltage gives the plate a positive charge to attract electrons from the filament'

If you got in a cab and the driver drove backwards, would he end up owing you money?

No, the meter works on time, not distance travelled, thus why when you are stood at lights, the damn meter keeps ticking 'have you never seen Airplane 2' :roll:

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

Because if you had a stupid fear of long words would you care what it is called

Why do they call it a TV "set" when you only get one?

Because a "television set" comes into the definition of an object made up of several parts because television sets bring together many different components.

How do "Do not walk on the grass" signs get there?

Cos they are stuck there when before the grass is grown :roll: and the grass grows round it silly

If I melt dry ice, can I take a bath without getting wet?

No cos dry ice is the 'melted' version of frozen carbon dioxide

Why is it that night falls but day breaks?

Night falls because the sun sets, as if 'falling' out of the sky. Day breaks as the sun rises, as if 'breaking' out of the earth (its a perceptual thing)

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

There are not 4 billion stars, and it to see if the paint has dried since being told

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

There are

A mother was walking down the hall when she heard a humming sound coming from her daughters bedroom.

When she opened the door she found her daughter naked on the bed with a toy. "What are you doing?" she exclaimed.

The daughter replied, "I'm 35 and still living at home with my parents and this is the closest I'll ever get to a husband."

Later that week the father was in the kitchen and heard a humming sound coming from the basement. When he went downstairs, he found his daughter naked on a sofa with her toy again. "What are you doing?" he exclaimed.

The daughter replied, "I'm 35 and still living at home with my parents and this is the closest I'll ever get to a husband."

A couple of days later the mother heard the humming sound again, this time in the living room. Upon entering the room, she found her husband watching television with the toy buzzing away beside him. "What are you doing?" she asked.

He replied, "Watching the game with my son-in-law."


When your pet bird sees you reading the newspaper, does he wonder why you're just sitting there, staring at carpeting?

Yes

How do people get discombobulated? Have you ever seen someone who was combobulated?

Discombobulated means to be in a state of confusion. The use of 'dis' in front of a word is usually to mean the opposite of the attached word. For instance the opposite to 'colour' something would be to 'discolour' it. But the opposite of a confused state, is one of a normal state. So there is no requirement for a word that means nothing or normal.

The bus driver :o Do you close doors behind you?
