Who was the first person to say, “See that chicken there? I’m gonna eat the next thing that comes out of its bum.”
This was just one of many questions that I received in a forward a while ago. All the questions were of that caliber and it just really made me laugh. But at the same time, it was kind of thought-provoking. Have you ever just sat down and wondered about things that we take for granted in today’s culture. I mean, really, who thought that the eggs that came out of a chicken’s butt would be delicious? And who thought to check out half the stuff from the sea that we currently enjoy as a possible food source, especially in Japan?
Why are elevators so unbelievably awkward for the majority of people who ride in them? And why is elevator music so annoying, yet you can’t help humming along and embarrassing yourself in the process?
Why do we compare the softness of skin to a baby’s bottom? Does anyone else find it a bit strange that we’d use that as a reference point?
Why are there so many weird animal idioms? “It’s as slick as bear grease.” “I’m so hungry I could eat a horse.” “It’s the bee’s knees.” Where did these come from? They don’t even make sense.
So many questions, so little time. What strange questions have you ever wondered about?
