Here’s two dozen things for you to "ponder". They are mostly silly, quite worthless, a waste of time, somewhat childish, not worthy of publication, and probably not worthy of reading! You’ve been warned. Here they are:

1. Ever wonder about those people who spend $2.00 a piece on those little bottles of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backwards : NAIVE

2. Isn't making a smoking section in a restaurant like making a peeing section in a swimming pool? (My sentiments exactly)

3. OK ..... so if the Jacksonville Jaguars are known as the 'Jags' and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are known as the 'Bucs,' what does that make the Tennessee Titans?

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

5. There are three religious truths:

a. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
b. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian faith.
c. Baptists do not recognize each other in the liquor store or Hooters.

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

7. If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

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

9. Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person who drives a race car is not called a racist?

10. Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety one?

11. If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

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

13. Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?

14. What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?

15. I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older; then it dawned on me ... they're cramming for their final exam.

16. I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks, so I wondered what do Chinese mothers use? Toothpicks?

17. 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?

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

19. You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive.

21. Ever wonder what the speed of lightning would be if it didn't zigzag?

22. If a cow laughed, would she spew milk out of her nose?

23. Whatever happened to Preparations A through G?

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

See, I told you so! I gave you fair warning! You’ve just wasted about 4 minutes of your life that you will never be able to get back.
(Now go and ponder that! :-)



  1. haven't you ever heard of "laughter is the best medicine" if we had more anecdotes like that to read, we'd all be healthier! loved them! thanks for sharing ;-)

  2. Great way to start the day. The toothpick one made me

  3. Y are such a funny man & a very smart man. I laugh so hard it was good for my heart & good med. But Chinese woman, they feed their baby with spoon. Oriental we used chopsticks & spoons. Mikey, what about people drink Fiji water, $3, more expensive than evian. We had to drink evian warter when we lived in Germany bc their water is not drinkable at that times but I did not like taste of evian water neither they said it is from alps, who know probably distill water.
