Things to Ponder

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

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

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

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

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

Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety one?

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?

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

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.

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?

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

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

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

Thanks to my Dad for emailing me these thoughts to ponder,
all I had to do was find some images and compile the post.

If you found something amusing here, please feel free to share
and in return your picture will appear next to mine !

Definitely Fed Up. And that's after having friends in both companies! ;)
I think the dry cleaners are already depressed.
And I'm so calling it onety one from now on.

Have a great weekend!
