If it's Wednesday, it must be time for ...Ask Mr. Knowitall!
A Mr. Ed Norton from Brooklyn New York asks...
Dear Mr. Knowitall...Why are manhole covers round?
Hey Norton.....It's so they won't fall 'through' the manhole itself!
Squares, Rectangles, and Ovals could be positioned so they could fall
through the opening, Round manhole covers rest on a lip thats smaller
than the cover. So the size and shape keeps the manhole from falling in..
A Mr. Buster Brown from Fargo North Dakota asks...
Dear Mr. Knowitall, How and why did people start polishing their shoes?
Dear Buster...A high Polish on shoes is a tradition passed down from the
Spanish Caballero whose shiny boots served notice that he rode his own horse
and did not walk along dusty roads with lesser men...
A Mr. Liberache Steinway from San Francisco California asks...
Dear Mr. Knowitall, Why do men have nipples?
Dear Lee...Males actually have the anatomical equipment in place to provide milk!
Fortunately it lies dormant unless stimulated my the female hormone estrogen..
Men may have suckled babies in the distant past..No one knows for sure!
A Mr. Fog Horn Leg Horn from Acme Iowa asks...
Dear Mr. ....I say Dear Mr. Knowitall...Why don't people eat turkey eggs?
Dear Fog Horn, they don't taste...I say they don't tatse good! The reason being
that they do not contain the amount of water that a chicken egg does. The next time you have eggs over easy, think about how wet they are. Turkey eggs when exposed to high heat, turn rubbery...
A Dr. Steven Hawking from the planet Mars asks...
Dear Mr. Knowitall, is it true that we only use 10% of our brains?
Dear Steve....Your kidding right?...No silly, you use EVERY part of your brain!
Just not every area at the same time! Although at any given moment, only about 5%
of your brain cells are actually firing...But as far as we know, there are NO brain parts
that NEVER do anything!!!
Mr. Knowitall grows weary..... Peace!!!
PS. Don't forget your HNT.....and start thinking about your 55!!
