When my friends gather, the conversation frequently drifts to the excessive number of emails that we receive on a daily basis. While we all criticize the volume of messages, we also appreciate the information and interaction that occurs for the enhancement of our daily lives.
Here is an example of something I recently received that provides some intriguing subjects for consideration and contemplation. Don’t worry, because this is not brain surgery, but a good and fun exercise for your cranium.

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They’re both dogs!
If Wylie E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that Acme crap, why didn’t he just buy dinner?
If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?
If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?
Do the Alphabet Song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?
Did you just try to sing the two songs above?
Why do they call it an asteroid when it’s outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it’s in your butt?
Did you every notice that when you blow in a dog’s face he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride he sticks his head out the window?
And the best one of them all…
Do you ever wonder why you gave me your email address in the first place?
I hope this gave you a smile to get through what remains of this beautiful day.
