The story goes that Albert Einstein met Charlie Chaplin and told him, "What I admire most about your art is its universality. You do not say a word, and yet the world understands you."
Charlie Chaplin replied, "It's true, but your fame is even greater. The world admires you even when nobody understands you!"
Okay, so if we're so intelligent, maybe you can tell me . . .
Why don't we ever see a headline that says: Psychic Wins the Lottery?
Or, why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in driveway and put our useless junk in the garage?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavoring but dishwasher liquid made with real lemons?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
Why isn't there a mouse flavored cat food?
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
Are you baffled yet? Then I have a riddle for you: The poor have it, the rich need it, and if you eat it you'll die.
A final conundrum. We both were born of the same mother, in the same year, in the same month, on the same day, and at the same hour. But we're not twins.
You know why?
Have a good holiday and a Happy New Year!
