I have always been intrigued by these notions, wierd ideas and thoughts that we have but are too afraid to voice for the fear of being ridiculed or branded "immature". As I was mindlessly surfing the colossal multitude of degenerate material that the internet has to offer, I found this site which is full of such zany questions which are silly but manages to tickle the funny bone. Although the content is american and some of these quotes have obvious conotations refering to their culture, it manages to be funny, hilarious at times, in an universal premise. Check out the link at the bottom of the page to visit 'www.crazythoughts.com'.
Some of the gems I found on this site:

  • Do they put underwear on corpses?
  • Why do numbers on phones go down while the numbers on calculators go up?
  • How come you play at a recital and recite at a play?
  • If electricity comes from electrons does mortality come from morons?
  • Why do you 'put your two cents in' but only a 'penny for your thoughts', where does the extra penny go?
  • Why do they call it 'head over heels' when your head is already over your heels?
  • Why do we carry the weight of the world 'on our shoulders' but have to 'get it off our chests'?
  • If you had x-ray vision but closed your eyes could you still see?
  • If you take a deaf person to court is it still called a 'hearing'?
  • What is a male ladybug called?
  • Why is it called a 'pair of panties', a plural, and a 'bra' is singular?
  • Why is the name of the phobia for long words hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia?
  • Did Adam and Eve have navels?
  • How can something be "new and improved"? If it is new what was it improving on?
  • How come you can hear yourself think?
  • Why do we have 'hot' water heaters?
  • Why do people squint their eyes when they can't see? Wouldn't that lessen the space they can see out of?
  • Why is it that when we plug our nose while humming it stops? Do we hum from our mouth or nose?
  • Do suicide hotlines have hold?
