Points to Ponder


Have you ever wondered about people who will spend several dollars apiece on small bottles of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backwards: N-A-I-V-E.

God spelled backwards is D-O-G. My dog has no problem whatsoever with that. Evil spelled backwards is L-I-V-E and devil is L-I-V-E-D. That sort of creeps me out.

If the Jacksonville Jaguars are known as the "Jags" and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are known as the "Bucs," what does that make the Tennessee Titans?

If 4 out of 5 people suffer from diarrhea, does that mean that one person enjoys it?

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?

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person who drives a race car is not called a racist?

Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety-one?

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?

If FedEx and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP?

As income tax time approaches, did you ever notice when you put the two words "The" and "IRS" together, it spells "THEIRS"?

Those sure are points to ponder.

I had never heard the "THE + IRS" one before.

I like it!

I'm going to begin a campaign to have this adopted as a national standard. I will also be pushing for the widespread vernacular use of "Hundred-and-Oneth" to indicate the spoken numeral, "101".

Disney can trademark the previous numeral, and legislation can be enacted to have the term apply only to cases of attractive canines. Heads will roll, courts will clog, lawyers will become rich(er).

Mike, THE + IRS seemed especially timely. LOL.

Littlebird, I'll help you with that campaign. It just makes sense to me.:)
