    I wonder about...

    I wonder about things like,who was the first fellow to look at a cow and think,"I believe I want to drink whatever it is that comes out of those hanger down things".
    What do you wonder about?

    I wonder why my utility company sent me a refund check for 36 cents for over payment on my last bill. Now utility bills are like death and taxes and it seems much simpler to credit my account 36 cents than to go to the trouble and expense to mail a check. Now I wonder if I should waste my time and gas driving to the bank to cash said check, or should I just put it away in my sock drawer and save it for a rainy day - thus driving the head bean counter nuts trying to reconcile the books?

    I wonder who first said, "Hey, these would be good if they were boiled. Let's call them 'Brussel Sprouts".

    Some Belgium woman, I bet. And by the way, she was wrong (and not just wrong because I've never had them the way she makes them, wrong because they are vile, inedible things.)

    Every time you pay a bill, write the check for 4 cents more than the amount due. Drives the accountants crazy. I want to know who first tried a raw oyster.

    I want to know who was the first person who looked at his buddy and said, "I am going to eat whatever comes out of that chicken's butt."

    They should have been called Stinkbug Sprouts.

    I've always wondered why the word phonetic isn't spelled the way it sounds.
