EVER WONDER?

Rebecca sent this email to me. Thought it was too funny not to share :)

ONLY IN AMERICA......

  • Do drugstores 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
  • Do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a diet coke.
  • Do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
  • Do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
  • Do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

EVER WONDER.......

  • Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
  • Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
  • Why you don't ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?
  • Why "abbreviated" is such a long word?
  • Why it is that doctors call what they do "practice"?
  • Why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
  • Why the man who invests your money is called a broker?
  • Why the time of day with the slowest traffic is called rush hour?
  • Why there isn't mouse-flavored cat food?
  • You know that indestructible black box thats used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!
  • Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
  • Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together? >
  • If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

Love it!!!Glad you shared it.

"America" we laugh when in Nicaragua they are in aw of The States (they think it's perfect)...that's because they watch WAY to much TV! We really have lots of things that are backwards. Most people from the outside see America from the view point of the TV...that's one of the many reasons we don't have one!

I think I just rambled and my comment made little sense...anyway enjoyed reading this post. The Braille ATM, funny...just as funny as the sign in the drive through of McDonalds that says we have a
Braille menu with pictures?! Only in America!

I like your picture with all the feet. I count 25 of them. What gives? Does someone have an extra one or is someone missing one?

You win the prize. Well, not for thinking that someone only has one foot. There are 26 legs, if you look very close you can see part of a foot! It's Nathan, maybe he was embarassed because he didn't get a pedicure?!?
