  1. Good ones.
    And why do the words flammable and inflammable mean exactly the same thing, but sane and insane mean the opposite.
    I have seen the work inept used to describe a person, but I have never the word ept used as a compliment.

  2. re: The first question, the parsley farmer.

    Several months ago, my lady and I were in the grocery and I happened to be standing near some parsley in the produce section.
    My gal leaned over and asked, quietly “Do you know the difference between parsley and pussy?”
    I looked at her quizzically. “No.”
    She continued down the aisle. “Nobody eats parsley.”

  3. John- Damn good question!!!

    ERJ- You are welcome sir!

    Paw- ROTF!!!

    WSF- That we have a sense of humor??? 😛

    Bob- 🙂

  4. Are there seeing eye humans for blind dogs?

    Actually, I saw a news story a few years ago about a lady in England who had a seeing-eye dog. After a new surgical technique was able to restore her vision, she was allowed to keep her now-retired dog. So when the dog started to go blind, the lady got another dog and trained it as a seeing-eye dog for her blind dog. Seemed to work out pretty well.

  5. Some old, some new, but all raise a smile. My question is this. Why is the word ‘Lisp’ contain the letter ‘S?.

  6. Why do we drive on a parkway but park on a driveway?

  7. “Why is the word abbreviation so long?”

    Because it was designed by a committee.
