Enjoy!

    * Why are there Braille signs at the drive-through windows at the bank?
    * If a deaf kid swears, does his mom wash his hands with soap?
    * What's another word for synonym?
    * Why do we drive on a parkway but park in a driveway?
    * Isn't it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do "practice?"
    * Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all?"
    * Is it possible to be "totally partial?"
    * Would a fly that loses its wings be called a "walk?"
    * If a turtle loses its shell is it naked or homeless?
    * If vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat?
    * If people can have triplets and quadruplets why not singlets and doublets?
    * Is Atheism a non-prophet organization.
    * I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, "Where is the self-help section?" She said that if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.
    * Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?
    * Why don't you ever see the headline, "Psychic Wins Lottery"?
    * Why is "abbreviated" such a long word?
    * Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor and dishwashing 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 are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
    * If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?
    * If flying is so safe, why is the airport called 'terminal'?
    * Why is it that to stop Windows 98, you have to click on "Start"? (my favourite)
