Ask a Stupid Question Day

28 Sep


 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!


Today, September 28th is an awesome day.  It’s Ask a Stupid Question Day.  Finally a day that we can ask all of those silly questions and not have anyone look at us a strange way.  Speak up my followers – ask all of those questions you were afraid to ask today that you have been wondering about all year long.

 I interviewed the occupants here at the Hotel Thompson.  They came up with some great questions that I’m going to share.  They’ll start so you can feel better about your questions.  Remember no one is going to laugh at your question – maybe the answer but not the question – chitter chatter

“Why is Grape Nuts cereal called Grape Nuts when it has neither grapes or nuts?”

“If the Professor on Gilligan’s Island could make a radio out of a coconut, why couldn’t he fix a small hole in the side of the boat?”

“Why does Goofy always stand up on two legs yet Pluto remains on all four legs?  Aren’t they both dogs?”

“Why do banks leave their doors wide open but chain their pens to the counter?”

“How come when the battery goes dead on the television remote, you think it will work if you press the buttons harder?”

“If a cat always lands on its feet and buttered bread always lands butter side down, what would happen if you tied buttered bread on top of the cat?”

“What color would a Smurf turn if you choked it?”

    In Germany we say there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers. So here we go with my stupid answers:
    A) Despite the name, the cereal contains neither grapes nor nuts; it is made with wheat and barley. Post believed that glucose (which he called “grape sugar”) formed in the baking process. This, combined with the nutty flavor of the cereal, is said to have inspired its name. Another explanation originates from employees at Post, who claim that the cereal got its name due to a resemblance to grape seeds, or grape “nuts.”
    B) Professors are not good at practical things – that is why they become professors and not engineers.
    C) Pluto refuses to be dressed, so he could not be antropomorphised. I’d say: Good for him.
    D) People steal pens all the time, but have you ever tried to steal a building?
    E) You don’t know the battery is dead, so you think you have not pressed hard enough ..
    F) If you tied a buttered bread on top of the cat, you would die trying. That is why nobody has ever found out.
    G) If you choked a Smurf, who is light blue, he would turn a “whiter shade of pale” – so become even lighter blue.

    Oh the Gilligan’s island question has haunted me since childhood. You crack me up Bacon.
    I do have to confess I grew up on a pig farm and bacon, as in found in a market, not you personally, and I do not get along at all.
