  • If you keep trying to prove Murphy's Law, will something keep going wrong?

  • Why do flammable and inflammable mean the same thing?

  • You know that little indestructible black box that is used on planes? Why can't they make the whole plane out of the same material?

  • Why isn't palindrome spelled the same way backwards?

  • If you see a heat wave, should you wave back?

  • Why do fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing?

  • If someone invented instant water, what would they mix it with?

  • Why is brassiere singular and panties plural?

  • Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it's called cargo?

Now all I need are some rhetorical answers...
