I keep hearing Steven Wright and/or George Carlin when I read these questions...

1. If practice makes perfect & nobody's perfect, why practice? - I think it was Bear Bryant who said "Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect"

6. If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors? - To keep the FBI out while the al Qaeda operatives make high explosive slushies.

8. When someone with multiple personalities threathens suicide, can that be considered a hostige situation? - I don't think so, the police never attempted negotiations with me when I went off the deep end

12. Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM? - If you were a blind guy in a cab, would you trust the cab driver with your ATM card?

22. If Wal-Mart is lowering prices every day, how come nothing is free yet? - Because they raise them back up every night.

41. If money doesn't make us happy, then what does it do? - It does buy happiness. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't have any.

45. When people say "I woke up on the wrong side of the bed," What side is the right side? - Whatever side allows you to wake up without seeing your wife.

"I have always been a soldier. I have known no other life. The calling of arms, I have followed from boyhood. I have never sought another." From The Virtues of War, by Steven Pressfield.
