  • I woke up last night and thought a while about my just died Grandma (Matriarch has spoken), and then I tried to think something else.

    And so I pondered some new vital questions after those that kept me awake few nights back (10 vital questions). And here they are, for you to ponder, too. I hope that they don’t keep you awake, like they kept me.

    Why lambs don’t shrink on rainy day?

    If I strangle a smurf (a schtroumpf – in picture), what colour will it’s face change to?

    How do fish drink?

    Why did Japanese kamikaze flyers use a helmet?

    If nothing sticks on teflon, how can they make teflon stick on frying pan?

    Why people push the buttons of TV remote controls harder when batteries are finished?

    If a deaf boy curses in sign language, does his mother was his hands with soap?

    Why are butterflies, most graceful insects ever, called with greasy name?

    If I could fly by speed of light, what would happen when I switch on driving lights?

    Why doesn’t my money last to next pay day?

    Well, break of dawn. It’s time to rise and shine. And feel little sorrow, too.
