Silly Stuff – Some Thought Provoking Questions

Okay, okay.  I know what you are thinking.  “But I read your ‘Silly Stuff’ for mindless entertainment.  I don’t want to have to think!”  Well, don’t worry your pretty little head.  I’m not actually expecting any answers here.

I was thinking about what to do for my Silly Stuff post this week when Jason came and asked me one of his ‘I’m trying to be funny but really I’m not’ questions.  That made me wonder:  What is the stupidest question that anyone has ever heard?  So I did a Google search for Stupid Questions and these are the funniest ones I found.

Oh, and if you can think of some actual answers for some of them…well you’re smarter than I am. 😉

Why does mineral water that has “trickled through mountains for centuries” go out of date next year?

Why does Donald Duck wear a towel when he comes out of the shower, when he doesn’t usually wear any pants?

How come you press harder on a remote control when you know the battery is dead?

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

How come there aren’t B batteries?

What’s wrong with being “over the hill”? Isn’t downhill easier?

Shouldn’t Ronald McDonald be, like, heavier?

What is the opposite of medium?

Are girls growing breasts bigger and faster, or am I turning into a pervert?

Is it illegal to make out with your wife while the cop writes your ticket?

Why is it that when someone tells you that there’s billions of stars in the universe, you believe them. But if they tell you there’s wet paint somewhere you have to touch it?

Why didn’t Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don’t they make the whole plane out of that stuff?

Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but people don’t point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Who was the first person to look at a cow and say “I think I’ll squeeze these dangly things here and drink what comes out”?


  1. Awesome, awesome, awesome! Really made me giggle and I read them out to Ry and he laughed too!
    Some of them really make you wonder though don’t they?!

  2. These were funny! I actually have an answer to one of your questions (I’m embarrassed at which one, LOL)

    Hubs and I had this conversation years ago and I think my theory is a good one: Regarding girls today having larger breasts – this “phenomenon” began with the discovery and usage of Nutrasweet. (Of course, chances are high that questioner really is a pervert, lol)

  3. These are great! **Who was the first person to look at a cow and say “I think I’ll squeeze these dangly things here and drink what comes out”?** …and a little gross 🙂

  4. Ally – I did find them surprisingly thought provoking…lol

    Patti – I can’t believe you actually had an answer! You go girl! 🙂
