Start your New Year with a little fun: Rhetorical questions to make you think…

Why not start your New Year with a little fun?

Here are some rhetorical questions you may like to ponder:

  • If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?
  • How come no one ever says, "It's only a game" when their team is winning?
  • If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?
  • Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
  • If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times, does he become disoriented?
  • Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?
  • Why do we say something is out of whack? What's a whack?


  • Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person that drives a race car is not called a racist?
  • Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?
  • When someone asks you, "A penny for your thoughts," and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny?
  • If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren't people from Holland called Holes?
  • Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread, to begin with.
  • If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call the resulting company Fed UP?

Drinking Coffee

  • Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety one?
  • Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?
  • When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?  
  • "I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?
  • 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?
  • I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then it dawned on me..... they're cramming for their final exam.
  • Ever wonder what the speed of lightning would be if it didn't zigzag?
