Think About It

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 the cigatettes at the front.

Only in America....do people order double cheese burgers, large fries and a diet Coke.

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

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

Only in America....do we buy hotdogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

Only in America....do we use the word "politics" to describe the process so well: "Poli" in Latin meaning "many" and "tics" meaning "bloodsucking creatures."

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

EVER WONDER:

Why women can't put on mascara with their mouths closed?

Why the sun lightens our hair and darkens our skin?

Why don't you ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?

Why is "abbreviated" such a long word?

Why is it that doctors call what they do "practice"?

Why there isn't mouse flavored cat food?

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
