Posted:Well in the past few days i have been thinking more and more about things that dont make sense but people dont think about it such as that woolwich advert with the people who claim they have been in jamaica for 15 years honeymooning but 1. You cant get 15 year passports and 2. If you were in Jamaica for 15 years you would have a Jamaican passport and so it really doesnt make sense! and aswell i was telling a joke to my friends yesterday (A man walks into a bar with a newt on his shoulder, goes upto the bar and says "a pint of beer for me and half a pint for my pet here tiny," and the bar man asks why he is called tiny and the man says "because hes my-newt (minute),") when my friend who has heard it before says that i have told it wrong and that a man walks into a bar with a lizard on his shoulder but if there is a lizard on his shoulder than the whole punchline doesnt make sense and the thing on his shoulder really isnt his newt its his lizard and so the joke really isnt atall funny (well its not that funny anyway) so i was wondering what other things like this have people thought about? biggrin

Posted:i thought a newt was a kind of lizard? surely that would be funnier....jokes are better when you have to work it out for yourself.


but yeah...why make sense? loads of things are wildly funny & entertaining if you don't try to apply common sense, but as soon as you do it all seems a little bit dissapointing.

less persnicking and more fun i say!


I had a dream that my friend had a
strong-bad pop up book,
it was the book of my dreams.

but isn't is also true that the world makes as much sense as you can make of it? that "sensicalness" and "nonsensicalness" are entirely in the eye of the beholder and that if something actually didn't make any sense at all (in the universal sense, not the same as making proper "common-sense") you probably wouldn't be able to even comprehend that you were sensing it? [think cthulu] and therefore it would always appear as something else that does make sense...



and i'd even bet that the majority of people being ignorant of the differences between lizards and newts would make sense if you've ever had to suffer through a govt. sponsored education system... wink

nickle's are cheap now that they're not made of nikel. in the US, zinc prices are currently such that it costs ~1.4 cents to make and distribute a single new US penny. and they're still making them! how little sense does that make?! lol.

Posted:loads of things don't make any sense to me...

why is abbreviation such a long word?
why is dyslexia so hard to spell?
why has lisp got an 's' in it?
why do you only ever see one shoe or glove laying in the road?
who are the 'guide dogs only' signs for?
why do people order an extra large big mac meal and double bacon cheeseburger with a diet coke?

I'm going to write a book one day called 'Things to Keep You Awake at Night'
