What, NO Birds? WHY? Its my birthday!

I have given myself permission to post whatever I want today as it is my birthday. As so many bloggers are either knee deep in snow, having too much rain or are in blistering heat, and hoping for spring to arrive early, I thought you might all be ready for a laugh, perhaps  a smile, or even a tiny giggle?  Well here goes, sit back and see if you are amused!

Why do supermarkets make the sick, walk all the way 
to the back of the store to get their prescriptions.

 While healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke?

 Why do banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters?

Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in our driveways and put our useless junk in the garage?

Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?

Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?

Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

Why is it that doctors and attorneys call what they do 'practice'?

 Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavouring, 
and dish washing liquid made with real lemons?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Why isn't there mouse-flavoured cat food?

 Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

 You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes?
Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff??

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

              If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

Now I hope you've smiled at least once.  We all need to smile every once in a while!!

OH!! - you didn't smile - well how about this one:-

Thank you for visiting and I hope I have given someone a smile today.

Each one must give as he has declared in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Surely you did not sit around and think all of this up your self?? If so, you are way smarter than I am... Truly Margaret I hope your coming year is the best ever! Oh, and on that bag for bird feed, There are several wonderful birding supply stores around where I live, so I will try to find one of those bags for a good example. They look perfect to hang up on the cabin trees. I will also carefully heed your good advice about its use. Birthday Hugs to you!
