    Here's yet another pointless, time-wasting game fo' ya! big_smile

    **For each 'post', a question that starts with "Why does..." shall be posted. 
    **The next person shall provide an answer.
    **This answer can be anything from serious to absurd.
    **This person shall ask a new "Why does..." question...and so on.

    example:

    Q. Why does the phone ring every time your in the shower?
    A.

This is also electronically enabled by call centre operators, mother-in-laws and ex wives.
