Have you ever woundered why people call something a name that has no relevance to what it is.
Still Water - Why? Its not gonna run around is it.
Sparkling Water - Why? It does not shine it fizzes.
The creeks around here are running like crazy after yesterday's rain.
Sparkling water catches and reflects light in the tiny bubbles-- I guess it depends on if you drink in the dark.
The fizzing motion looks sparkly. Therefore, sparkling water. It's also called fizzy water, as a side note.
"Still water," as opposed to "running water." Yes, it is going to run around as a matter of fact.
What're some other ones? Because if you can find some that really have no relevance, those can be funny. Or confusing.
Sounds like you're describing oxymorons like 'jumbo shrimp'
Certain words just don't o together, for example,
what exactly is:
oxymoron sums it up...
Sum it up. Isn't that what a "sum" is? You add it all together????
add it together, take it apart, just tell me if you have any of that "extra money" or know where little bighorn is.
I have a huge midget next door, and he owns the worlds smallest giant.
Ladies and gentlemen, hobos and tramps,
crosseye mosquitos and bowlegged ants.
I stand before you, not behind you
to address you not to undress you
To tell you a story
I know nothing about
It was late at night at the break of day
when two dead boys came out to play
they stood back to back and faced each other,
pulled out their swords and shot each other
a deaf policeman heard the noise and
came and killed those two dead boys
If you don't believe me ask the blind man on the corner
for he saw the whole thing.
I was just wondering: is New York the only state in which you can park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?
