Ask A Stupid Question Day!

Have you ever been told that there are no stupid questions?  Well I think there actually are.

But rather than focus on stupid questions, like perhaps “Who composed Beethoven’s 5th symphony,” I would like to focus on the questions that are so mind bogglingly (is that a word?) simple, yet we don’t think about them until somebody asks them—and then we can’t come up for a good answer!

For this I’d like to bring in some quotes from George Carlin.  Here are some of his thought-provoking questions:

  1. Instead of talking to your plants, if you yelled at them would they still grow, only to be troubled and insecure?
  2. What’s another word for synonym?
  3. Isn’t it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do: ‘practice’?
  4. When sign makers go on strike, is anything written on their signs?
  5. Why isn’t there mouse-flavored cat food?
  6. Why do they report power outages on TV?
  7. What should you do when you see an endangered animal that is eating an endangered plant?
  8. If a turtle loses his shell, is it naked or homeless?
  9. Why don’t sheep shrink when it rains?
  10. Should vegetarians eat animal crackers?

I hope you enjoyed these as much as I do.  Make sure you check in next week to catch some exciting Calyx news!
