ASK UNCLE DUFFY

Questions, I have:

• How can cemeteries raise the cost of burials, and then blame it on the cost of ‘living?’

• Why do we bake cookies and cook bacon?

• Why do the signs say, “Ear piercing while you wait?” Is there some shop where you can drop them off and pick them up later?

• Are unripe oranges called “greens?”

• Do fish get thirsty?

• Do they have special parking for non-handicapped people at the Special Olympics?

.........Hmmm.


Only in America

• Only in America ... do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

• Only in America ... do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

• Only in America ... do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

• Only in America ... do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

• Only in America ... do we have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.
