Silly Sunday

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!


Is it good if a vacuum really sucks?

Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand?

If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know?

If Webster wrote the first dictionary, where did he find the words?

Why do we say something is out of whack? What is a whack?

Why does “slow down” and “slow up” mean the same thing?

Why does “fat chance” and “slim chance” mean the same thing?

Why do “tug” boats push their barges?

Why do we sing “take me out to the ball game” when we are already there?

Why are they called ” stands” when they are made for sitting?

Why is it called “after dark” when it really is “after light”?

Doesn’t “expecting the unexpected” make the unexpected expected?

Why are a “wise man” and a “wise guy” opposites?

    When you stop to think about it our language really doesn't make much sense. Could it be because Webster wrote the first dictionary and made definitions up as he went along. In some cases he ran out of ideas for meanings so he used some twice πŸ™‚

    • January 1, 2017 3:14 pm at 3:14 pm

      Yep, English is a very difficult language. πŸ™‚

    Heeheehee! It's great to start the New Year off with a laugh, thank you. Happy New Year!

    Ah, to ponder the imponderables. Have a great new year from all of us.

    • January 1, 2017 3:14 pm at 3:14 pm

      You have a great new year too. πŸ™‚

    Since everything is out of whack these days, nobody has ever seen a whack so I couldn't tell you what a whack is. It's like proving a negative.

    • January 1, 2017 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm

      Yes, you're spot on about this. πŸ™‚

  6. January 1, 2017 7:18 am at 7:18 am

    Hockey New Year!

      Good question, Timothy. πŸ™‚

    The expecting the unexpected one really screws with your brain the more you try & figger it out.

    • January 1, 2017 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm

      Yep, that's the fun in these things. πŸ™‚

  17. January 1, 2017 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm

    My favorite is the wise men vs. the wise guys. Hahaha. Immediately Joe Pesci popped into my mind. – Happy New Year!

    • January 2, 2017 7:07 am at 7:07 am

      Of course it is. You're Italian, so that makes perfect sense. πŸ™‚

  18. January 1, 2017 7:55 pm at 7:55 pm

      Yes, welcome 2017. πŸ™‚

  19. January 2, 2017 12:33 pm at 12:33 pm

    English can definitely be strange at times.

    • January 2, 2017 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm

      Putting it lightly. You're right about that. πŸ™‚

  20. January 2, 2017 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm

    hah! why don't we say "making cents" when we are making money? I know,I know…pretty silly!
    Hope your New Years Day was splendid! xoxo from the 3 of us!

    • January 3, 2017 6:52 am at 6:52 am

      All of them can be silly.

      We had a most delightful New Years Day. I hope the three of you did too. πŸ™‚

  21. January 3, 2017 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm

    Now you've got me thinking. Too early in the new year for that πŸ™‚

    • January 4, 2017 2:20 pm at 2:20 pm

      I know, but I just love these things. πŸ™‚

  22. January 5, 2017 7:34 am at 7:34 am

    Oh my Sandee, never mind funny. These oxymorons have got me thinking how odd the English language is. No wonder it takes so long to master it fluently, it must get very confusing!


    • January 5, 2017 7:44 am at 7:44 am

      It is a very difficult language to learn I'm told. Oh wait, I make enough mistakes too and it's my first language. πŸ™‚
