Ow, this one is really too rich! Surely you remember, dear reader, that in the first instalment of my Book of Burning Questions, I tackled that old riddle: ‘Which came first: the chicken or the egg?’ This generated some pretty bizarre reactions from misunderstood geniuses who figured that The Dinosaurs Did It (you know, man: just as the Martians built the Pyramids on the request of the Atlanteans…). But it also inspired some kinder, smarter souls to come forward, one of whom brought to my attention the following side-splitting website joke:
A chicken and an egg are lying in bed. The chicken is smoking a cigarette with a delighted smile on its face. The egg, however, is sulking, and mutters to itself: ‘Well, I guess we answered that question…’
With that, I guess we unscrambled the chicken-and-egg dilemma! The egg got laid! Who’d have thought it?
But back to serious business! Since I know from the ‘stats’ that you love them, here are three more Cool Answers from Alfred B. Mittington’s Book of Burning Questions:
Q: Why are we on earth?
A: Because of gravity.
Q: Is it really so hard for a camel to go through the eye of a needle?
A: That depends on the size of the needle. If you are rich enough, you can buy a real big one.
Q: Why did the Magyars invade Europe?
A: Because they were Hung’ry.
