double cheeseburgers, large fries,

and a diet coke?

"Psychic wins lottery" LOL!! Funny.

Vickie said...

These were hilarious, yet some of them actually were thought provoking. The black box and the airplane...exactly!!

cherie said...

i keep postponing calling the dermatologist. this is a reminder...funny post!

otin said...

Oh they were great! Some of them were so funny, but also true, like the braille at the ATM, or the hot dogs and buns!

Jaime said...

lol - the diet coke makes us feel better about the extra large fries and double bacon cheeseburger that are going to go straight to our thighs and butt. :)

Mango Girl said...

HaHA! My favorite is the braille at the drive up ATM.

Bren said...

Too funny! Yeah - drugstores put the pharmacy in the back so that you have to walk by every thing else in the store and buy more stuff. I just want to know why they say something is ready to be picked up but it takes 30 minutes when you get there for them to actually give it to you!

Martha in PA said...

These are great! Thanks for the early Saturday laugh!

Matty said...

I just came across your blog. I'm still smiling as I write this. These random thoughts are great.

Jennifer-EightyMPHMom said...

Oh that is wonderful news - whew!!

Your sayings above are hilarious - and so, so true. I've often wondered why the pharmacy is in the back of stores - that is just stupid! I mean I know why - but still.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mommy Jamie said...

Ha ha ha! Love it.
I've often wondered that about the cars...especially here in TX where hail happens so often. MY car is in the garage ;)
Great news on the test results!

Amy said...

Great list...

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

Those are great!! You are brilliant!:)

Justine said...

OMG, some of these are too funny but a few explainable. The fast food one? A diabetic or hypoglycemic (me!) would have to order the diet coke!

Justine :o )

blueviolet said...

Those are great!! They fit right in with your blog name! :)

Why don't we notice these types of things on a daily basis? I guess we rely on you to call them to our attention.

Octamom said...

Excellent questions! I'm going to pondering these!

Blessings!

Brian Miller said...

ha. those are some amazing questions....i wish my broker was not...

rxBambi said...

Hooray on the "all good"! I have another one for you: Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Bloggin Betty said...

Came over from Hit 40s blog and loved it! Hope you don't mind me stalking you. And I totally agree on the mosquitoes.

Unknown Mami said...

Those were some good ones. I can't pick a favorite.

Liz said...

Wow those where interesting and fun to readl

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh Stacy. I really needed this for laughs today! I thank you soooo much!

And i just went and tried the whole mascara thing. . . yeah. . . I can't keep my mouth closed. . . it paralyses my hand! LOL

all great comments and very valid as well!

Yaya said...

I love random questions! :)

These are too funny!

Hit 40 said...

Doctors call it practice because some of them really suck at it. If you find a good doctor, don't leave town. Finding another good one is tough!!!

Raven said...

Those are fantastic! I got one more for you:

Why do we park in a driveway and drive on a parkway?

Have a great Sunday!
