    If Wal-Mart keeps lowering its prices every day, how come nothing in the store is free?

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

    (copied from a calendar)

    #1115732

    Sometimes you only need 1 aspirin, especially for children.

    you are expecting that SOMETHING may occur that you were not expecting, the specific nature of which is unexpected.

    the bubbles are usually multicolored, not white

    Why is it that no matter if i put a pair of socks in the wash only ONE comes out????

    #1115743

    Aspirin is a health aid. An aid echod is useless.

    If Wal-Mart keeps lowering its prices every day, how come nothing in the store is free?

    Have a little patience. The air and Muzak hit $0 a while back.

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

    The soap washes out the colors.

    Because under-the-bed monsters are scared off by loud music and teenage drivers.

    Why is it that every time I need a fifteen bus a two comes, but when I need a two (and come on time!!), two fifteens come before the two comes late??

    The MTA likes tormenting you. Every other rider in the city gets their bus first.

    I saw in my hallway a bike and a shopping cart leaning against a pole. Guess which one was locked up with the bike lock? WHY??

    The purpose of the lock was to prevent the pole from being stolen. If the bike was locked to it, someone could have ridden away with the pole.

    Why in NY do you get honked 26 times as soon as the light turns green…hmmmm

    Because the horn died before the 27th honk.

    blinky:1.they hide in the corners of fitted sheets,in the space between the dryer and the wall,they stay in thw washer and dryer unnoticed and become part of other loads,they get stretched/faded so they don’t look like their original “partner’s”pair anymore,etc.a shidduch crisis indeed.one thing is guaranteed–the day you finally decide to throw out all the unmatched socks “for once and for all”is the day Tante Leah from Detroit calls to tell you “you left a bunch of stuff by me the last time you were here…a bib,a pair of tzitzis…AND A LONG BLUE SOCK”…

    Why is it that when you show your friend they have something on their face they always manage to miss the spot, first they put their hand on the opposit side ur showing them,(ok i can figure that out) but then,

    THEN when they finally get the right side, they dance around within a milimeter of the spot or stain but never get it?

    Then when you finally mangage to GPS them the spot, YES THERE!!!! Thet try to take it off………………AND……………

    IT’S STILL THERE?????!!!!! Ribonoh shel Olem!!

    It makes them seem slow even though there not?

    You can just plotz!

    Anybody who had this happen knows, that’s crazy hysterical,

    but true! :-0

    Kids ages 2-6 according to Piaget go through a period of preoperational thought, where they ask why all the time because they cannot yet think logically about the world around them. Their thought is egocentric and is rigid, limited to one aspect of a situation at a time, and strongly influenced by the way things appear at the moment (they lack object permanence). This is why everything is a question.

    The philosopher Montaigne answers these skeptics in his writings, arguing against the stupidity these people exhibit when they question everything and refuse to accept anything as axiomatic truth at face value. These people will ask how can G-d exist if He can;t be seen, yet they’ll believe science, which claims that everything is made of atoms, even though you can’t observe an atom. (Atoms, like G-d, lehavdil, cannot be seen, yet we believe that they exist). This is why atheists are illogical and quite dumb.

    rebdoniel says “This is why atheists are illogical and quite dumb.”

    I second that!

    I believe that there are two catagories of Atheists.

    Really dumb ones,(who don’t get it) and really haughty ones (who

    can’t accept it), for that would make them responsible for their actions having to answer to a higher authority, so they vehemently deny the existence of the obvious. Denial 101.

    “Why isn’t there a special name for the tops of your feet?”

    Actually there is – it is called the dorsum. Which reminds me, why can I remember an almost useless tidbit of info like that from my nursing school days in the 70’s but I cannot remember what I ate for breakfast yesterday or to pay the phone bill on time? Why, why, why???

    “you left a bunch of stuff by me the last time you were here…a bib,a pair of tzitzis…AND A LONG BLUE SOCK”

    Eclipse – this is the first CR post that has made me laugh out loud. Thanks for making my day.

    What is it about Pringles?

    Every time i take a few chips and say “that’s it, last one” there’s always that ONE more that somehow turns into 2 1/2, and since you don’t want to break a chip, (so annoying!) you round it off to 3 chips. Then, since you started a “new round” there’s that “one more” problem all over again!!!

    Before you know it there’s only one more chip left.

    So you decide to leave it. But what kind of person leaves ONE CHIP In a Pringles can?!! So before you can say STOP, it’s in your mouth. So you decide to dump the crumbs. But Isn’t that Bal Tashchis? I may be a Fresser but i’m not a Bal Tashchis guy.

    Somehow the can makes a headstand and my mouth is forced to open lest I be oiver Bal Tashchis and getting the kitchen floor crumby,

    another Isur according to my Rebbitzin.

    DO THEY PUT COCAINE IN PRINGLES? i really think so.

    IMHO there isn’t anyone who doesn’t get it, just those that don’t want to get it.

    What did people compare taste to before they had chickens? …tastes like lizard?

    Why do the foil things for the burners (with a cutout in the middle to keep the stove top clean) come in packs of five? Buy four and you get the fifth set free?

    Why do we tell children to be themselves and not try to be like anyone else, and immediately afterward tell them to behave nicely like that other kid?

    When was sliced bread invented?

    And when it was, what did they compare it to? (“this sliced bread is the best thing since?”)

    Why is it always AFTER I hit the send post button,

    that I notice all the typos & misorganized sentences?

    I don’t know, but there’s an edit button for that.

    Be more careful when starting threads, though,

    because you can’t edit them until they’re approved.

    why do you always think of the extremely witty rejoinder to

    someone’s comment after you’re leaving the party, on the way

    down the stairs?

    The French have a term for this phenomenon – “l’esprit d’escalier,”

    which translates as “the spirit of the stairway.” (Maybe that’s

    where he got it from – the stairs are a rather specific reference.)

    Why is the third hand on the watch called a second hand?

    Because it counts the seconds, of course.

    Did Noach have woodpeckers on the Teivah?

    If he did, where did he keep them?

    Anywhere. Woodpeckers don’t peck at random –

    they can hear insects moving underneath the bark.
