Inquiring minds want to know...


Some things I would really like to know:

1. What, exactly, is the meaning of the phrase, "High-ho, the dairy-O"?

2. Just about everything that comes in a jar has a label that says, "produced on the same equipment with shellfish, meat and nuts" - e.g. everything you might a) be allergic to or b) be avoiding if you are a vegetarian, kosher, or vegan. My question: Don't they wash it?

3. Along these lines, what is up with peanut butter jars that say, "Warning: contains peanuts." Isn't that the point of peanut butter? Are they letting me down gently, in case I really wanted broccoli?

4. Companies that have signs that say, "Quality since 1946" (or whatever date.) Did their products suck before then?http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

5. If "G-rated" means sexually neutral, why do they call it a G-string?

Any thoughts? Help me out here...

PS If this did not give you your laughter quota for the day, go read my good friend Darth's post regarding recent news.

Litigious societies demand warning labels.

But the one I am REALLY waiting for is...

"Wanring: This jar has a warning label on it"

Can't really add anything to Darth's comment about being sued until a person on skid row is richer than you are.

Always thought it was incredibly funny reading on a jar of nuts, this product contains nuts.

Perhaps a "G-String" is something that is used to prevent one from gazing at the wearer and preventing the gazer from getting in trouble with Officer Overly Friendly for making people want to become overly-friendy with a certain part of their body that the MPAA has a problem with (but no problems if you have a slasher flick with high body counts).

Hmmm - g-rated. Who would want that??? :)

That peanut thing is probably for forgetful people like me - I work with a woman with a nut allergy and more than once I've offered her nuts or things with nuts in them. Not on purpose of course, just forgetful.

A g-rated g-string?? Makes no sense at all, chica! LOL Love your questions!! :D

Why do they call the place where you park a driveway and the place where you drive a parkway?

Did I just blow your mind?

G Strings suck. Soooo over G strings. Give me boy shorts or give me granny panties! I'm old and don't care now whether I have a panty line showing or not!
