Life as a Voyage

가비얍게 웃자고 하는 얘기들. 다 이해가 가시우? ㅋ

회사 내 메일링 리스트에 올라온 웃자고 하는 얘기들. 어린애들이 이런거 물어보면 흠… 대답하기 난감할 듯. ㅋ 솔직히 몇개는 이해 안가는 것도 있기는 함.

  • 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?
  • 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?
  • Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
  • When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?
  • Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person who drives a racing car not called a racist?
  • Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?
  • Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?
  • Why isn’t the number 11 pronounced onety one?
  • ‘I am’ is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that ‘I do’ is the longest sentence?
  • If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn’t it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?
  • What hair colour do they put on the driver’s licences of bald men?
  • I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks so I wondered what do Chinese mothers use? Toothpicks?
  • Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don’t they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the postmen can look for them while they deliver the mail?
  • You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive.
  • No one ever says, ‘It’s only a game’ when their team is winning.
  • Ever wonder about those people who spend $2.00 apiece on those little bottles of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backwards: NAIVE
  • Isn’t making a smoking section in a restaurant like making a peeing section in a swimming pool?
  • If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhoea, does that mean that one enjoys it?
  • Why if you send something by road it is called a shipment, but when you send it by sea it is called cargo?
  • If a convenience store is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the door?

재미있수? 한국말도 마찬가지지만 영어도 이런 말장난들이 많아서리… ㅋ
