Silly Sunday

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

Oxymoron's:
  • Why do "overlook" and "oversee" mean opposite things?
  • Why is "phonics" not spelled the way it sounds?
  • If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay you to do it?
  • If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?
  • If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?
  • If you are cross-eyed and have dyslexia, can you read all right?
  • Why is bra singular and panties plural?
  • Why do you press harder on the buttons of a remote control when you know the batteries are dead?
  • Why do we put suits in garment bags and garments in a suitcase?
  • How come abbreviated is such a long word?
  • Why do we wash bath towels? Aren't we clean when we use them?
  • Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
  • Why do they call it a TV set when you only have one?
  • Christmas - What other time of the year do you sit in front of a dead tree and eat candy out of your socks?

  7. Why is bra singular and panties plural? It really doesn't matter, because soon both of them will be disappearing. Ha,ha,ha. My joke of the day. I know, it wasn't that funny or good.

    Have a beautiful Sunday Sandee & Zane. See ya

  9. hahah the one about the remote struck close to home! R will open up the remote and spin the batteries around trying to get them to work....meanwhile I am pondering why he just doesn't go downstairs and get two new batteries...I've even handed him the new batteries and yet he persists in trying to get all the good out of the two poor overworked and old batteries!

  18. I love these because they really make you think. It makes me wonder about the people who came up with these references. What were they thinking?? I have to say. I am guilty of pressing those remote buttons. Or I shake it and smack it on my palm a couple of times. :)

    1. I think we can all agree on the remotes. I've seen so many approach the lack of batteries the very same way. :)
