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

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

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

    Why doesn’t glue stick to the bottle?

    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 you 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?

    If at first you don’t succeed, shouldn’t you try doing it like your wife told you to do it?

    And obviously if at first you don’t succeed, then don’t take up sky diving!

    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.

    Why do whites not check the "other" box? Why do we bring our ID to vote? Why vote only once? Why accept an entry level job or continue working there when that time could be spent axing for twice as much monay and you get a tax-free income regardless?

    Why is there a different name for lightning and thunder? Is there anything else that we give a different name for the sound?

    Why do I try and answer all of these questions instead of just enjoying them for the humorous value for which they are intended?

    Why do we continue to turn the lights on during a power failure?

    Why do we need to see a remake of Carrie every 4 years?

    Why do allow car companies to supply blowup spare tires in new cars
    that only go 50 miles?

    Why do we believe that congress will solve the next debt crisis on time instead
    of waiting for the absolute last minute?

    why do we outlaw feeding wild animals to avoid making them dependent and then create programs to encourage a large percentage of our population to become dependent

    why do we hate congress but continue to elect the incumbents

    why do we steal money from future generations so that we do not have to live within our means

    why do we spend billions protecting countries that refuse to spend their own money to protect themselves

    why do we borrow money from other countries so that we can give it away to different countries

    why do we encourage people that cannot afford to feed their children to have more children

    why is something always somebody else's fault

    why are people dying trying to get into this country for the opportunity to better yourself here while others born here bemoan the lack of opportunites

    Why do TV stations have to advertise upcoming new series 10 times per hour every hour 2 months before the show will even start?

    Why do people point to their wrist when they want to know what time it is, but they don't point to their pants when they need to ask where the restroom is?
