Default The weird &*$#! That runs through my head...

Do you think Hank Allen ever considered playing in Japan just to hear himself announced as Hank Aaron?

How about you? What weirdness lurks in your brain?

I have a long commute to work. This pops in my head usually once a day.....

A guy comes home from work in the middle of the day and catches his wife in bed with another man. He pulls out a gun and shoots them both dead. A horrible, tragic event, but I do understand why the guy did it. I don't agree with it, but I understand it.

But why someone cruises in the far left lane of a 3 or 4 lane wide freeway without passing someone - that is something I just can't wrap my brain around. Why? What possible rational explanation can there be? THE LEFT LANE IS FOR PASSING! Do you enjoy getting tailgated? Do you enjoy getting cut off as cars swerve around you? Do you enjoy blocking 10 cars behind you when there's traffic? WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? I DON'T UNDERSTAND!!

I want to follow the person home and just politely ask them, "why?" Just give me some sort of rational explanation so I can get on with my life.....

Ever since the Ice T/Lemonade commercial I have often wondered if Ice T drinks his body weight in lemonade would he become Arnold Palmer?

I asked 2 people about this. One is my cousin who lives in a big city with a lot of 3,4, and 5 lane roads. The other was a friend who I was riding with that lives in a little town.

Both gave me the same answer. Driving in the right lane scares the hell out of them because of all the people getting on and off the road.

I am with you if you are driving in the left lane speed up or get the hell out of the way.

Since I laughed out loud, I have to chalk that up as a guilty pleasure!

Everyone knows that Clark Kent wears his Superman suit under his regular clothes. But where does he keep his cape? Doesn't it get all bunched-up at his rear end?

These are the types of questions that keep me awake at night.

why cant punters wait to get tackled and while falling to ground on angle kick the ball one yard by barely touching ball.....since the ball wasnt blocked isnt that roughing the kicker..

Other than that the next time it most certainly WILL be roughing the kicker...


That's brilliant!


There must be some finer point of the rule.

i was wondering if you could even kick it backwards but assumed it had to go forward. Quarterbacks all the time are getting hit then throw the ball last second...its real easy to kick a ball on either foot away from a tackler an inch..

I have always taken satisfaction in the fact that my trash bags come in a box that ends up being thrown away in one of those trash bags.

Coming from Brooklyn, the last generation or so used to pronounce the "OY" sound as "UR', and reversed it and pronounced the "UR" sound as "OY", so if WAITE HOYT GOT HURT, a person from Brooklyn back then would say WAITE HURT GOT HOYT!!!!!!!

Default Church Pews

Why do people sit at the very end of church pews - and make you climb over them in order for you to sit in the pew. I sometimes make a point to sit right next to them - our bodies almost touching.

Why is it when two planes almost hit each other it is called a "near miss?" Shouldn't it be called a "near hit?"

Why do we say that an alarm clock "goes off" when it begins ringing?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

Why is it so many board members assume they're the only ones who've ever listened to Steven Wright...

I was wondering how long it would take to mention him.......kind of like waiting until you're eight-years-old before having a birthmark.

I have a friend who is an AM radio DJ. When we drive together and go into a tunnel, I can't hear him.

Or George Carlin. Some of these are before Wright's time.
