Just a few deep thoughts for 1999 by Steven Wright (comedian)
1. A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. At my workplace, my desk is considered a work station... 2. If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP? 3. If quitters never win, and winners never quit, what fool came up with, "Quit while you're ahead"? 4. Do Lipton employees take coffee breaks? 5. What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men? 6. I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing husbands on beer cans. 7. I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then it dawned on me - they're cramming for their finals. 8. I thought about how mothers feed their babies with little tiny spoons and forks. So I wonder what Chinese mothers use -- Toothpicks? 9. Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do . . . write to these men? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen could look for them while they're delivering the mail? 10. How much deeper would oceans be if sponges didn't live there? 11. If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the OTHERS here for? 12. Clones are people two (II?). 13. If a man says something in the woods and there are no women around to hear him, is he still wrong? 14. Go ahead and take risks....just be sure that everything will turn out OK. 15. If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague. 16. Ever wonder what the speed of lightning would be if it didn't zigzag? 17. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be. 18. Think "honk" if you're telepathic. 19. If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide, is that considered a hostage situation? 20. If a cow laughed, would milk come out her nose? 21. I went for a walk last night and my kids asked me how long I'd be gone. I responded, "The whole time." 22. So what's the speed of dark? 23. How come you don't ever hear about gruntled employees? And who has been dicing them anyhow? 24. After eating, do amphibians need to wait an hour before getting OUT of the water? 25. Why don't they just make mouse-flavoured cat food? 26. If you're sending someone some Styrofoam, what do you pack it in? 27. I just got skylights put in my place. The people who live above me are furious. 28. Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections? 29. Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny? 30. Isn't Disney World a people trap operated by a mouse? 31. Whose cruel idea was it for the word "lisp" o have an "s" in it? 32. Since light travels faster than sound, isn't that why some people appear bright until you hear them speak? 33. How come abbreviated is such a long word? 34. If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be? 35. Since Americans throw rice at weddings, do Asians throw hamburgers? 36. If olive oil comes from olives, where does baby oil come from? =================================== Memorable Clinton Quotes (Hillary probably helped write them...)
