I haven't blogged quirky quotes and questions in a very long time.

I happened to find some recently. (Well, I was looking.)

They might make you smile.
(Smiling is good for you.)

Here we go:

Don't you wish there were a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked 'Brightness', but it doesn't work.

"We are not retreating - we are advancing in another direction."
- General Douglas MacArthur


"After you've heard two eyewitness accounts of an auto accident it makes you wonder about history."
- Bits & Pieces

"Wagner's music is better than it sounds."

"Let me assure you that to us here at First National, you're not just a number. You're two numbers, a dash, three more numbers, another dash and another number."
- James Estes


"No wonder nobody comes here--it's too crowded."

Now here are some quirky questions (with no visual aids):

If the #2 pencil is so popular why is it still #2?

Why do psychics have to ask for your name?

Would a fly without wings be called a walk?’

Why does "fat chance" and "slim chance" mean the same thing?

Whose cruel idea was it for the word "Lisp" to have a "S" in it?

Why do "overlook" and "oversee" mean opposite things?

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

Why does your nose run and your feet smell?


Well, those are my quirky things for now.

They maybe brought a smile??
