Strange sayings

Everything seems so serious of late. We all have problems, and I know that I myself have been particularly beset by a few this last week or two, so in an attempt to lighten the mood, if only for a little while, I thought I'd share the following sayings:-

If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times ,

does he become disoriented?

If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren't people from Holland called Holes?

Why do we say something is out of whack! What's a whack?

Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

When someone asks you, " A penny for your thoughts ", and you put your two cents in, what happens to he other penny ? Or do you get change?

Why is the man ( or woman) who invests all your money, called a broker?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread to begin with.

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist, but a person who drives a race car not called a acist?

Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

Why do overlook and oversee mean opposites?

If lawers are disbarred and clergy defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricans can be delighted, musicians enoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

Why isn't 11 pronunced onety one?

"I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest entence?

Do lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?

What hair colour do they put on the drivers licence of a bald men?

I was thinking about people who seem to read the Bible a lot more as they get older, then it dawned on e ...they were cramming for their final exam.

If it is true that we are here to help others ! then what are the others here for?

Ever wonder what the speed of lightning would be if it didn't zigzag?

No one ever says , "It's only a game ", when their team is winning!

Had to think twice about the 'taxi' driver ;) I met a lot of 'Holes' when I spent a summer living and working in Noordwijk - many years ago
