Points to ponder when you're stoned...

Why during winter do we keep our house as warm as it was when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father in law jokes?

How do those dead bugs get into enclosed light fixtures?

Why do people keep returning to the refrigerator in the hope that something new will have materialized?

Can you cry underwater?

If you have sex with a prostitute and don't pay her is it considered rape or shoplifting?

Is there ever a day when mattresses aren't on sale?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

Once you're in heaven, are you stuck wearing the same clothes you were buried in?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Why does a dog get mad when you blow in his face but when he goes for a ride he sticks his head out the window?

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




I invite your answers and other questions.

1. The last one is easy:

Humans didn't evolve from apes. Humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor.

Charles Darwin's The Descent Of Man should help you out on that score...

4. Square boxes are easier to manufacture.

Here's one:
Why don't they make pizzas square to fit the boxes?
That would be fairly easy.

9. "If humans evolved from apes, why are there still apes?"

For the same reason we still have Republicans--some of the apes came down from the trees head-first..

13. These are good...reminds me of one we came up with before the euro. If you are at

a store in Italy and you buy something for one lire and you pay with a hundred thousand lire note, does the clerk have to count all the way up to 100,000 when you get your change?
