Why?

Once again I have been tagged by another naughty blogger type person!  This time it was that pesky Miss Cisco over at The Ramblings of a Formerly Rock 'n' Roll Mum.  So being the good egg that I am I'll grudgingly answer her request and tell you about the things that make me go "WHY?"

  • Why do companies offer "FREE gifts?" Since when has a gift NOT been free?

  • Why isn't chocolate considered a vegetable, if chocolate comes from cocoa beans, and beans are vegetables?

  • Why is Charlie short for Charles if they are both the same number of letters?

  • Why do they call the small chocolate bars "fun size"? Wouldn't it be more fun to eat a big one?

  • Why is Donkey Kong called "DONKEY" Kong if he's a monkey/gorilla?

  • Why is there a difference between being murdered and being assasinated? Do only important people get assasinated?

  • Why isn't science an incorrect spelling if the rule is "I before E, except after C"?

  • Why is shampoo lather always white, no matter the colour of the actual shampoo?

  • Why doesn't all the sealife die when lightening strikes the sea?

  • Why do people have to get up early to go to church if Sunday is the day of rest?

  • Why do so many people put more effort into their wedding than their marriage? 

  • Why do they call front seat shotgun?

  • Why do people say "heads up" when you should duck?

  • Why are things typed up but written down?

  • Why did some sick person named the phobia of the fear of long words Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia? That's just cruel!

  • Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

  • Why are boxing rings actually square?

  • Why do thaw and unthaw mean the same thing?

  • Why are tampon strings always blue?

     
So that is my very random list!  What are yours? Who will be tagged next?
